Brave souls can embark on a self-guided scavenger hunt and creepy crawly trail through ancient woodlands and wetlands, discovering critters lurking around every corner. Be spooked with a thrilling trail through the woods and see if you can hear hooting owls, feel silky spider webs and collect sticks for wands. Plus, there will be tricks and treats for the whole family with creative spooky craft-making sessions, including lolly stick cobwebs.

Families can head to Hootz House for a Halloween hoot in an award-winning eco-play area and enjoy a wicked visit to WildRootz, featuring dens, tunnels, slides and zip wires.

Deb Jordan, owner of Pensthorpe Natural Park, said: “The team are cooking up some very creative ways to make the park look extra spooky and Halloween-themed this year, and don’t let the name Trick or Tweet fool you – our team are busy planning lots of surprises.

"There is also the chance for young nature explorers to learn about some of the amazing creatures that call Pensthorpe home, including why creatures like spiders and bats aren’t quite as scary as you might think! Of course, autumn is a glorious time here at Pensthorpe in our gardens and woods, with the patchwork of autumnal colour the perennial foliage provides. Hear leaves crunch underfoot, find some conkers and discover signs of wildlife all around you.”
