If you’re already fretting about keeping the kids entertained during the upcoming half-term, don’t be. A trip to Hobbledown promises to silence those dreaded I’m bored moments…

During the October half term – that’s between 26 October and 3 November – Hobbledown are hosting plenty of activities to spread a little Halloween spirit. What can we expect? There’s meet and greet sessions with bearded dragons and hissing cockroaches, flying demonstrations from the birds of prey and some lighter entertainment of pumpkin bowling.

The kids can also get involved in Halloween themed lunches and attend this year’s special event, The Haunted Dolls House, hosted by magician/escape artist/juggler/comedy performer Greg Chapman.


Hobbledown, Horton Lane, Epsom, KT19 8PT
