again take place centred around the award winning Creaky Cauldron and Magic Alley in Henley Street from 1 October - 31

of the Pumpkin Father at the Haunted Manor, late night Screenings at the Stratford Picture House,
ghost stories and ghost walks around Stratford with Stratford Town Walks as well as some spook-tacular
The Pumpkin Father will once again be taking up residence in the

a treat, but beware, be unsuccessful and get a terrible fright…
The Golden Broomstick Café will once again be
serving up a range of special Halloween delicacies including Toffee Apple and Spiced Pumpkin Milkshakes, Original Recipe Butter
Beer, Pumpkin Pie and lots of other ghoulish delights.
