Halloween Events in Solihull

Any wannabe vampires, ghouls, witches and ghosts will have plenty of fun at Solihull Council’s Halloween themed events during the half term week!

The events programme starts with the Wicked Workshop and Terror Trail in Elmdon Park on Tuesday 30 October, 11.00am – 1.00pm. Young visitors should wear their best Halloween costumes for a chance to win the fancy dress competition.

There will also be a ‘terror trail’ around the park, followed by a themed craft activity and colouring pictures. The event costs £1 per child, payable on the day, and the meeting place is the car park on Tanhouse Farm Lane.

Next, youngsters should get on their broomsticks and head for Shirley town centre where a Spooky Halloween Trail will be taking place on the High Street on Tuesday 30 October, 1.00pm – 3.00pm (last trail at 2.30pm).

Children in fancy dress and their parents can take part in the trail around participating shops and collect treats along the way! The event costs £1 per child – for more information, please contact Rachel Lowe on 0121 704 8759.

Finally, on Halloween itself, Wednesday 31 October, the popular Haunting Halloween event will take place in Brueton Park.

Again, those with the best Halloween themed fancy dress have a chance to win a prize, and there'll be a scary walk around the park to meet Smelly Nelly the witch, as well as spooky stories and lots of other things that go bump in the night! The event will finish with a craft activity at the Parkridge Centre.

Walks take place at 5.30pm; 5.50pm; 6.10pm; 6.30pm and 6.50pm and cost £3 per adult and £2 per child. Places are limited so please contact 0121 704 8000 to reserve a place. Credit and debit card payments can be made over the phone, while cash payments can be taken on the night.

A devilishly good time is guaranteed!
