If you hadn’t noticed already, it is October! The start of brisk mornings, autumnal walks, and hot chocolates by the fire. But most of all… it is the season for pumpkins, sweet treats, ghost stories, dressing up and (yep you guessed it) HALLOWEEN.

Being the party revelers that we are here at Viral Entertainment, we thrive in the spooky season with some of the scariest VR games that there are. But it's not just about us. We’re not ones to shy away from shouting about some of the fantastic Halloween events in Northamptonshire, and we think it's only fair to share some of these with you.

So as a treat from us to you, here is a list of some of the greatest events for Halloween near you, that all contribute gallantly to an unforgettable Halloween, for kids and adults! It wouldn't be right to categorise us within our top 5, that's for you to decide. Remember, there are lots of Halloween activities near you in the Northampton, Kettering and Corby area, so make the most of them!

1. Pumpkin Farm Spooktacular

An absolute MUST, if you and the family are looking for a traditional Halloween activity in Northamptonshire. 

Hosted by Wappenham Farm, Towcester, head down and pick yourself the perfect pumpkin from their pumpkin patch. It's not just any old pumpkin farm... follow the spooky trail around the farm and collect clues to find the Witch's spell! 

Once you've collected your pumpkins, take a sneak peak at some of Wappenham Farm's exciting farm animals and even feed them! If you're feeling brave enough, carry on the spooky theme in style with some spine-tingling stories and top it off with a browse around their Halloween shop... fangtastic treats to be had!

Available for 16th - 31st October 2021!

2. Halloween Trail Stanwick Lakes

Next on our list for the best Halloween activities near you, is the unmissable Halloween Trail, located at Stanwick Lakes, Wellingborough. This spooktacular trail is certainly one to add to the list of things to do this Halloween.

Once armed with your Book of Spells, start earning your Witch/Wizard powers by helping The Stanwick Sorceress remember the spell for her magic potion. Make your way around the spooky trail and find all of the missing ingredients you can... but watch out, the looming fear of Halloween might just catch up with you.

No booking required, just simply turn up and purchase your ‘Book of Spells’ activity leaflet from their The Snack Shack or Visitor Centre Reception.

And remember to wear your best costumes, after all... it is Halloween!

Available from 25th October - 31st October
