THE GHOSTS OF TRAQUAIR
Friday 24th October & Saturday 25th October
Friday 31st & Saturday 1st November
7pm & 9pm.
HALLOWEEN FUN DAY
Sunday 26th October.
11am – 4pm.
Traquair will be celebrating Halloween this year by bringing back some ghosts from the past for their spooky Halloween Tours and then having some spooky fun and games for all ages for a Halloween Fun Day.
The very popular ghostly evening tours of Traquair will return by popular demand. If you want a truly atmospheric visit to this ancient house, these are the nights to come. Ghosts of the past come to life and guide you through the house telling the stories of their lives and the trials and tribulations they faced as Catholics and Jacobites.
Be on your guard for the odd unexpected surprise and then relax in the comfort of the eighteenth century Dining Room with a glass of mulled wine. Not for those with a nervous disposition.
On Sunday 26th October, the Halloween Fun Day will suit families and for children of all ages. Get dressed to kill and enjoy the wide variety of entertainments from traditional Halloween Games including Apple Dookin’ and Spooky Lucky Dip to a ghostly chocolate treasure hunt in the Maze, Spooky Scavenger Hunt, Spooky face painting and a Wizard and Witches workshop. For those who dare, take a trip down the Spooky Passage for a very ghostly experience or listen to some ghoulish tales in the library. There will also be magic shows throughout the day with Kramus Nexifus, the Magical Wizard and for adults, tarot readings in the house.
The 1745 Cottage Restaurant will be serving Halloween Suppers on the nights of the ghost tours as well as delicious lunches and teas every day until the end of October.
