Ghoulish goings-on!

Things are set to get spooky at Dudley Zoo as staff prepare for ghoulish goings-on at our Halloween Hocus Pocus events.

Customer Services Team Member Holly Kennings is one of the gang gearing up for our three spook-tacular evenings for daring youngsters on Monday 29, Tuesday 30 and Wednesday 31 October.

The after-hours fun kicks off at 5pm until 8pm when there’ll be a trick or treat trail around the eerie castle with a few creepy crawlies and surprises along the way.

Youngsters can dress to impress in their scariest costumes to watch Dippy’s Halloween Show and disco and take part in ghoulish games.

There are creepy crafts and colouring too, a freaky fancy dress parade and chance to take a spooky selfie with DZG’s mascot Lou the Bat.

Dudley Zoo’s Marketing Manager, Andrea Hales, said: “Our Halloween events always go down a treat as the zoo and castle after dark is an eerily exciting place to be.

“Tickets for our Hocus Pocus nights and Paranormal Evenings for over 18s are selling fast, but there’s still time to have a frighteningly good night at DZG.”

Hocus Pocus tickets, which must be booked in advance, are priced £10 for children aged three to 15, with under 3s free. Adults are £8.50 each and a family ticket, for two adults and two children, is £32.

Meanwhile adults can get into the Halloween spirit at our Paranormal Evenings which take place in the heart of the 11th century castle and feature investigations, vigils, experiments and tours. The evenings, which cost £40 per person, are hosted by spiritualist medium Craig Morris on Friday October 26 and Friday November 9 from 8pm to 2am.
