Created especially for younger people accompanied by their grownups, Candy and Cobwebs is a Halloween trick or treat event for families and under 10s at Blists Hill Victorian Town, near Ironbridge on 31 October and 1 November, 5pm-7pm.

Come along dressed in your best Halloween outfit, collect a fun activity sheet on arrival and begin exploring the Upper Town’s historic streets, which will be decorated with lanterns, cobwebs and carved pumpkins as dusk descends.

Try dipping a candle in autumnal colours, listen to a creepy story, design and colour-in a pumpkin picture and knock on doors to ask for a treat from the spooky Townsfolk. Little people completing all the activities will receive a goody bag to take home. The Coffee Shop and Fish & Chip Fryers will also be open with drinks and food for appetites big and small.

This event is perfect for families with young children looking for a gentle spooky experience rather than a scarier Halloween night.
