There are three timeslots to choose from. The earlier timeslots have less scares and frights so would be more suitable for very young children, but all times are family-friendly. 

Embark on a family Halloween trail...

As twilight descends upon Ushaw, an eerie enchantment begins to brew...

Step into the luminous woods and meet beloved fairy tale figures like never before. Embark on an all-new trail set within Ushaw’s historic grounds. Choose from three time slots, each more spine-chilling than the last. Though designed for family fun, beware – the later the hour, the deeper the fright. Can you brave the trail’s darkest depths? 

At the end of your timeslot, the theatre troupe promises a finale that will leave you spellbound!
