October half term events at Abington Park Museum

Published: Monday, 16 October 2017

Abington Park Museum will play host to a range of workshops and events for children and families this October half term.

Starting with a one-man performance of Oscar Wilde’s Canterville Ghost, in an adaptation written especially for families, on Saturday, 21 October. Haunted Halloween activities will also be taking place on Saturday 28 and there are less spooky sessions on offer too with autumn leaf crown and bulb planting workshops on Thursday, 26 and Friday, 27 October.

Councillor Anna King, cabinet member for community safety and engagement, said: “Abington Park Museum has centuries of history so it’s a great venue for ghost stories and the park itself always looks beautiful in autumn as the leaves start to turn.

“There’s a good range of activities to suit different ages and tastes, so I hope plenty of families come along to get involved. Don’t forget that you can find the ghost of Lady Wantage hiding at the museum too as part of the Ghosts of Northampton Past trail. You just need to download the free Aurasma app and follow the trail to get started.”

Events require booking in advance and places are limited on some of the workshops. Visit our museums pages for more information on all events at Abington Park Museum or call 01604 838110 to book tickets.
