A fangtastic Hocus Pocus!

We had fangtastic fun at the family Hocus Pocus evening as DZG celebrated Hallowe’en.

Young visitors braved the 40-acre site in the dark and came dressed to impress, with the Queen Mary Restaurant full of little witches and wizards, scary ghosts, ghouls and pumpkins.

DZG Marketing Assistant, Andrea Hales, said: “We all had a great evening, playing ghoulish games, apple bobbing and making creepy crafts and joining in the fun with Snow White and the Curse of Frankenstein show.

“There were also some spooktacular costumes spotted around the site; everyone made a great effort and all got into the Hallowe’en spirit. “

Over in the Discovery Centre visitors had the chance to learn more about our creepy critters during close encounters with snakes, ferrets, cockroaches and spiders before taking part in a friendly ghost walk to discover what goes bump in the night in Dudley Castle.
