It’s that time of year when the ghosties come out and things go bump in the night. But to truly get in the spirit of the occasion head to Newmarket and the surrounding area where there will be some seriously spooky goings-on this Halloween.

You’ll all get the chills at the National Horse Racing Museum’s Family Fright Night on 27th October.

Plus, there’s a Creative Halloween drop-in craft workshop for little ones on 25th October. Family Fright Night tickets cost £6 adults, £3 children, under-5s go free.
