There will be an opportunity for youngsters to make masks, carve pumpkins, get their face painted, and discover all the animals at the Boo at the Zoo event.

Children can explore a Creepy Kitchen and gaze into a Pungent Pond, before meeting some not-so Frightening Friends.

Under 5s can also follow the scarecrow and his friends to the farm for some magical games.

Interactive talks and demonstrations will be running throughout the event, for example an Owloween Encounter and a Monster Mythbuster talk.
