Berkeley Castle at Halloween
Mini monsters-in-training can pick up some terrifying tips at Ghoul School, taking place at Berkeley Castle this Halloween half term.

Kids can get an eerie education at Berkeley Castle this Halloween, with lessons in monstrous behaviour from vampires, witches and even a werewolf at Ghoul School — enrolling new students from Sunday 23 to Wednesday 26 October, as well as on Sunday 30 October 2022.

From learning scary stories from Gary the Ghoul to frighten their friends, to hearing Count Dracula's top tips on how to become a successful blood-sucking vampire, Ghoul School will teach little terrors how to become the perfect monster.

On this self-led audio adventure, children will follow a trail around the castle, meeting a spooky cohort of teachers along the way.

Hear the terrifying truth behind the history of pumpkins from Jack O'Lantern, cackle at Betty Bones's side-splitting Halloween jokes and meet Meg Misery-Guts the witch, who cursed herself mad after her spell class took a terrible turn — with Ghoul School's hairy headmaster, Winston Werewolf, on hand to explain everything along the way. 

Visitors can look the part too, with Halloween-themed face painting available on Sunday 23, Monday 24, Tuesday 25 and Sunday 30 October 2022 for £4 per child. Just remember to bring cash!
