Get your spook on in Bristol this Halloween
Our top picks for things to do in Bristol this Halloween
As England’s favourite American import draws nearer, we’ve gathered together our top picks for Bristol’s spookiest events
FEAR at Avon Valley Adventure and Wildlife Park
Until 31st October
Thrill seekers rejoice, Bristol’s famous FEAR event will once again be descending on Avon Valley Adventure and Wildlife Park. Consisting of three award-winning horror mazes; Phobia, Purgatory and Anarchy Live. From live theatre and street entertainment, to a breath-taking fire show every hour the event even includes fairground rides, music, food and bars, with the crème de la crème being ‘Killzone’, an interactive shooting experience. This one is not for the faint hearted.
Big Fish Little Fish’s Family Halloween Rave
Big Fish Little Fish returns to Bristol for their Halloween Spooktacular at Stoke’s Croft institution, Lakota. Please the whole family with a multi-sensory dancefloor replete with glitter cannons, bubbles and a giant parachute dance, alongside craft tables, a giant colouring mural, a playdoh table, a play area with tents, tunnels and even a baby chill out space with matts and a small ball pool. Fancy dress is more than encouraged for this funky event that’s fun for all the family.
Bristol Zombie Walk
For the last decade, Bristol has once a year been inundated by Zombies in the run up to Halloween. From zombie pirates to grisly brides expect to see horrific head wounds and bodies covered in blood as the undead walk amongst the people of Bristol. The event includes a test-run of Avon Fire and Rescue’s mass decontamination set-up and is hoping to smash it’s previous record of 3000 attendees back to the underworld for their tenth anniversary.
The Stoke Park Ghost Tour
Perched on the hillside by the M32, the yellow towers of The Dower House preside over those that come and go from Bristol. Rumoured to be one of the most haunted buildings in Bristol, the ghost of 17-year-old Elizabeth Somerset is said to roam its corridors since falling from her horse in 1760. This Halloween, Steve England, who knows the grounds better than anyone, will be giving another of his renowned ghost tours. In past years participants have reported the batteries in their phones draining for no reason – a sign of the presence of the supernatural.
