IF YOU go down to Tatton Wood be sure of a big surprise – Cheshire’s First FrightFest.

Halloween horror is coming to Knutsford, offering frightful fun for all the family, and the Army of Darkness needs you and is recruiting for people to be part of the terror team.

Tatton Group is joining forces with an immersive theatre company to bring a series of spooktacular events to Cheshire for the first time this autumn.

Working with Tatton Events, Immersive North, one the north west’s leading attraction and event specialists, is bringing an interactive 15+ horror experience for Halloween, in addition to family-friendly activities throughout October half-term week, made almost entirely from recycled materials and props.

For adults and older children the evening Halloween show, Scarewood, promises a dark world with a fright in every corner of Tatton Wood, with demonic forest folk, roaming zombies, monsters, creatures of the night and creepy clowns.

There will also be daytime fun for all the family at Cacklewood, when youngsters trick or treat on the Terror Trail, hear spooky at the pumpkin-carving patch, sing along to a ghoulish panto and enjoy face painting, slime and street food.

As the sun begins to set there will be a lantern walk deep into the woods for one final ghost story before teatime.

Scarewood is not for the faint-hearted, and uses strobe lighting, non-toxic smoke effects and loud bangs.

The organisers are looking for people to help make this a wonderful event, and it’s perfect for anyone who wants to be part of a major theatrical happening.

Actors are sought to be zombies and creatures of the night, and if you have a passion for costume or make-up, or are looking for work experience, Scarewood has a place for you too.
