On Saturday 26th October, The Devil’s Porridge Museum held its third annual Halloween party for local young people.

The event was a great success (the busiest year so far with over 30 children in attendance!) The costumes were fantastic and there were games like guess the number of spiders in the jar, musical statues and chairs, dress the Mummy (with toilet paper!) and apple bobbing. There were prizes for the best dressed boy and girl as well. Lots of food and sweets were available and everyone had a great time.

Manager of the Museum, Judith Hewitt, commented, “Our volunteers and staff really outdid themselves this year, decorating the museum and coming up imaginative ways to scare the kids! Morgan, our apprentice, dressed up as a World War One soldier and hid in the darkened museum. The kids had to find him and release him from the clutches of the evil ghost (Calum, our Junior Youth Council Representative). It got a bit wild but was brilliant fun. I can’t thank the people behind this enough event for their enthusiasm and energy in making this night such a success. Bring on the Christmas Party on December 14th!”
