You’ll find plenty of spooky goings on at the Botanic Gardens this half term. Look out for man-eating plants, talking trees and a host of eerie characters – they’ll make you laugh or scream – or maybe both! You can also uncover botanical facts, make a spider’s web in the shape of a dream catcher - or catch a leaf creature.

Plus, if you attend the Dracula Show you’ll be asked to help Count Cottonbud get his scare back! (show is on Tuesday 31st October only). Suitable for toddlers upwards. No prior booking required for activities.
