This Halloween, the National Marine Aquarium has a trick or treat in store for all the family with a night of spooky fun. On Saturday 28th October, the Aquarium will be hosting a night of Halloween themed antics for all those brave enough to venture into the eerie underwater world!
Visitors are invited to dress up for the occasion in their most fearsome fancy dress costumes, so dig out your best witch, ghost, zombie or dracula outfit and head down for a Fright Night to remember. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes.
Family Fright Night features a hair-raising array of activities, including petrifying pumpkin carving, creepy cupcake decorating, fantastic face painting, plus a spine-tingling trick or treat trail around the Aquarium. This chilling night will culminate with a tremendously awesome Fright Night Show.
Tickets cost £5 for adults and £12 for children, under 3’s go free.
Victoria Spurdle, Events Manager at the National Marine Aquarium, said: “Family Fright Night is a great way to combine Halloween celebrations with an educational trip into the murky depths. We’re planning a whole host of nail-biting activities that will give visitors to the Aquarium a new insight into life in the ocean. As we take them on a tour through the Aquarium, we’ll be telling some weird and wonderful tales about the sea and there will be plenty of opportunities for children to get involved in Halloween themed activities.
“For those looking for a little more bite from their visit, we’re hosting a special Sleeping with Sharks event on Friday 27 October, offering visitors a unique chance to snuggle up for the night and watch as these fascinating creatures of the deep swim silently overhead. The perfect precursor to Halloween, Sleeping with Sharks promises to be a terrifically terrifying treat. Both events are ideal for any parents looking for new ways to provide spooktacular entertainment for their kids this Halloween. Be there if you dare!”
The Halloween events at the National Marine Aquarium will be a combination of entertainment and education, geared towards providing families with a greater understanding of the marine environment and how we can all help to keep it safe for future generations to enjoy.
