THERE will be plenty to keep the little ones occupied this half-term with Hallowe’en inspired events held throughout next week.

Children can make their own bat at a Bat-tacular event at Clifton Park Museum on Tuesday, October 31.

Sessions run from 11am until 1pm and from 2pm until 4pm. The event costs £2.50 per child.

Thrybergh Country Park will hold a scarecrow trail on Tuesday from 11am until 3pm with prizes up for grabs for those who find all the scarecrows.

Fancy dress is optional but encouraged. The event costs £1 per entry sheet.

Youngsters can also get ready for Bonfire Night by making their own papercraft fireworks at craft sessions at Boston Castle on Wednesday.

Sessions will run from 11.15am until 12.30pm and from 1.15pm until 2.30pm. Call Clifton Park Museum on 01709 336633.

Also, on Wednesday there will be loads of ghoulish ghosts as Herringthorpe Valley Park hosts the Haunted Hunt.

Get dressed up in your spookiest costume and join us in the park.

The event, which is suitable for children aged six to 11, will run from 10am until noon. A place must be booked in advance by calling Green Spaces on 01709 822453.                          

Children must be accompanied by an adult at all of the events.

There will also be a sing-a-long showing of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast at Rotherham Civic Theatre on Saturday, October 28, from 2pm.

Visit or call 01709 823621 to book tickets.
