October Half Term Fun at The Trentham Estate

The Trentham Estate is a great place for a fun day out this October Half Term

Every generation can enjoy spending quality time together in the great outdoors, check out our fun-packed October Half Term events programme.

Trentham Gardens

Join our mad scientists at the start of half term (23-25 October) for some crazy hands-on indoor Halloween themed experiments. Caution, vampire blood making and Frankenstein snot will be involved!

From the 26-29 October you can follow our haunting Halloween Trail, which will take you on a hair-raising hike around the gardens and lakeside until you meet our spooky scarecrow. Discover his name and be treated to a treat courtesy of the tearooms. Also on these dates you’ll be able to get active in the great outdoors and learn how to carve a pumpkin with Wilderness Survival Skills. We’ll also be carving our our ghoulish giant pumpkin on the 28-29 October, can you guess what it will be?

Feeling brave? Don’t miss your last chance of this year to get naked from the knees down and tantalise your toes on the barefoot walk. Tackle the assault course, zoom down the zip wire, fly high on the swings and conquer the Altitude Tower on the adventure playground. Take the fairy trail and try to spot the 15 fairies which call Trentham Gardens their home.

Caudwell Children Frightfully Fun Run

We dare you to join us this Halloween Night for a frightfully fun run, jog or walk around Trentham Gardens with only a head torch to light your way, for Caudwell Children’s Trick or Treat Family Fun Run 5K.
