Halloween Events in Oxfordshire

With Halloween lurking just around the corner. I thought I'd take a look at what Oxfordshire had in store for visitors and residents to the area this spooky season.

Museums

First up is a Bogeyman Slime Making Workshop at The Story Museum which we visited over the Summer. Great for those who enjoy the book and making mess as you make your own slime.

Sticking with central Oxford then why not find out about Bats, Cats, Witches and Charms in the Pitt Rivers Museum and try out a back pack full of activities.

Over to Henley now where The River and Rowing Museum will be putting on a family fun day about Magical Monsters. There will be a chance to get creative and listen to scary stories.

For those in the north of the county Banbury Museum has you covered with their Spine Tingling Banbury event. There will be scary tales, a spooky trail to follow and the chance to create clay witches/wizard hats.


Farms

Of course Halloween can also be seen celebrated in the countryside too as many farms have got in on the action. 

 Fairytale Farm will have you on the look out for Fairy Tale Baddies and Spooks 

Adam Henson (famed for being on Countryfile) has transformed his Cotswold Farm Park into Halloween Land for everyone to enjoy. 

Cogges Manor Farm near Witney is also entering into the spirit of things as they host Pumpkin Day where you can weigh your own home-grown pumpkin. 


Something Different

If you are looking for something different than why not head to Waddesdon Manor where you can take part in a spooky orienteering race.

While  Oxford Castle Unlocked have their annual Ghost Fest with things to entertain all family members. 

What event will you treat yourself to this Halloween?

Whatever you choose to do this month keep safe and have a great time. This post has in no way been sponsored by any of the above companies. I just love to research what's on for keeping the kids entertained.

  1. Pitt Rivers is one of my favourite places to visit, especially around this time of the year. Always spooky. My children prefer the Natural History side though. #MMBC

  4. Halloween is a favourite event in my daughter's calendar and she starts getting excited months in advance. Our house is always bedecked with all things ghoulish, there is a party with lots of spooky games followed by trick or treat and a suitably scary movie. Each year as she gets older I hope it will start to tone down but halloween seems to be one of those events that transcends age! Sounds like Oxfordshire has some great events on. Have fun. #mg

  5. Halloween is really starting to gain popularity here in Australia, but it is still strange as we ate in Spring and it seems to suit Autumn better. My children are obsessed with making slime so they would be so into going somewhere to make slime. Thanks for joining in with #mg linky this week xx

  8. Oxfordshire is one of my favourite places to visit! My inlaws are there, so I will look up some of these places and activities, if we drop by there during half term! We took our children to a pumpkin festival on Saturday-it was very crazy, very random, but so much fun! Thanks for sharing with #bigpinklink!

  11. Ah there is a lot going on in your neck of the woods. We're going to a playgroup party...that's about it. I am not the biggest Halloween fan and the kids are still quite little so I am sure it will be enough for them. I hope you enjoy and thanks for sharing at #familyfun

  15. Hi Helena, Oxfordshire has plenty going on this Halloween. Wadesdon Manor & Oxford Castle Unlocked sound like family fun with older children. And are we ever too old for a bit of slime making?

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.
