Halloween is creeping closer and the dark nights are drawing in, so are you brave enough to lend a hand to create a spooky shelter within the forest?

RSPB Sherwood Forest are inviting children to build a den fit for a witch or warlock to cast their spells and make potions in as part of our fun Halloween half term holiday activities.

There will be spine-tingling tales from a storyteller and hot chocolate to see off the shivers. Why not dress up in your favourite scary costume too?

Event details

Booking in advance is essential. Recommended for children aged six years and above.

All materials will be provided, and children are encouraged to wear gloves to protect their hands while building the den. Each child must be accompanied by an adult, who’ll get to take part for free.

Check our website and the Visit Sherwood Facebook page for updates.
