THE National Trust is staging spooky fancy dress competitions, apple bobbing and ghostly tours at its historic properties across North Yorkshire to mark Hallowe’en.
The Hex Factor fancy dress competition will be staged at Nunnington Hall, near Helmsley, on October 26 and 27, and visitors can also go on a ghostly tour around the Hall, take part in a spooky Halloween trail and witness some gruesome special effects make-up.
At Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal, near Ripon, there will be apple bobbing, guess the weight of the pumpkin and a fancy dress competition on November 2, while at Beningbrough Hall, near York, visitors can write and tell their own spooky story, and make a scary mask or head down to the basement to test their nerve, with events running throughout half-term. “In partnership with Cine Yorkshire, they can also watch the family film Frankenweenie in the unique surroundings of the hall, on October 26 at 11.30am,” said a spokeswoman
