Fright at the Museum: Scary Tales

1 October @ 10:00 am - 6 November @ 4:00 pm


The Beaney’s annual Spooktacular fundraising event!

Fright at the Museum: Scary Tales is an  interactive Halloween trail for the whole family to enjoy. This year we’re exploring everything that’s grim and scary in fairy tales!

A goblin has arrived at The Beaney and is FURIOUS that they haven’t been included in any famous fairy tales. They’ve kidnapped big-name characters and imprisoned them around the museum. We need your help! Can you solve the goblin’s puzzles, work out the goblin’s name and make sure everything ends happily ever after?

The Family Halloween trail is £5 per copy. Complete the trail to receive a reward and be entered into a competition for an even bigger prize!*

Fancy dress encouraged!

*One participation prize and competition entry per trail.

Special Spooky day on Saturday 29 October.

Closed Mondays (except Monday 24 and 31 October).
