Do you dare take a trip on the Tanfield Ghost Train? Visit the Tanfield Railway on the 26th and 27th October 2019 for a spine tingling, hair-raising journey along the World's Oldest Railway.
Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for creatures lurking in the dark and things that go 'shunt' in the night!
Take part in gruesome games and taste some fangtastic food and drinks. Be amazed by the bizare bubbleologist and frightened by the freaky fire breather.
Take part in circus skills, have a go on the dangerous drums and marvel at the mad scientist. Visit the birds of prey and hold an owl or a hawk.
Feeling brave? Do you dare take a walk through our spooky tunnel?! Feeling very brave? Do you double dare hold a spider or snake?!
Make sure to dress up in your best costume, as we want to see lots of witches, ghosts and ghouls! Don't worry if you forgot your mask though, as we'll have our face painter on hand to make you look simply scary.
The event is suitable for all ages, however the darker it gets, the spookier it becomes!
