Halloween at Wenlock Edge
At Wenlock Edge we really get into celebrating Halloween. This is because the Edge is surrounded by myths and legends so Halloween gives us the perfect opportunity to tell people about the spooky side of our spirit of place.
Activities started on Saturday 28th October with a jam-packed day starting with decorating the woods near Presthope and Much Wenlock with cobwebs, fake blood, bats, spiders and more. In the afternoon we had our children’s event which was the most successful it has ever been. Children created little wooden bats before helping a downtrodden witch to rebuild and decorate her home. Then as a group we went exploring the woods at Presthope, listening to stories told by a cast of ghostly characters and last but not least we had our fancy dress competition and handed out ghoulish goody bags.
