Lower Drayton Farm in Penkridge will be transforming into one of Staffordshire’s spookiest spots for their Halloween celebration.
Running between Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd October, little terrors Spookfest will run between 10 & 4:30pm. Pumpkin Pat and his helpers will welcome them to the event, which will be just spooky enough for kids. With a trailer ride to pick their own pumpkin, followed by Halloween craft activities, the Maize Maze & the farm’s resident animals & outdoor play area, the kids will be worn out & ready for a nightmare-free sleep!
Once the kids are in bed, the “grown up” fun starts! Running for 12 nights from Friday 21st November, Twisted Attractions award winning team will be opening the gates to their latest theatre of screams. With four live horror attractions; the haunting mystery of Priory Fields, the gory secret of Mrs Piggots Pie Shop, feel the fear on the Destruction trailer ride, and nightmare inducing House of Insomnia, will you ever sllep with the lights off again? To really test your horror mettle, a performance in Dr Hades Fear Theatre is also available at an additional charge. Add to the mix live music, a fair ground, street entertainers, food and a licensed bar, and the stage is set for a howler of a night.
Far from disappointing firework fans, Saturday 29th October is Fireworks Extravaganza night. This will take place alongside the Halloween Scream Night event but with fireworks only adult and child tickets available allowing visitors to enjoy all the fun and attractions of the main arena without taking in the live horror shows.

“We have had a number of people expressing concern about the safety of animals on the farm during the fireworks display. Rather than respond to everyone individually we want to state that we take animal welfare very seriously. We organise a highly professional display and believe that this kind of organised event is far better than amateur ‘back garden’ displays as they are advertised well in advance and local pet / livestock owners are aware that there will be display at a set time and date and can make arrangements accordingly. As for our own livestock, we make every effort to ensure that animals likely to be affected by the fireworks are safely in their pens/houses and that they are carefully checked before, during and after the display. 2016 will be the 10th year the fireworks display on the farm and we have never had animals panicked or injured by the fireworks and make every effort to ensure they remain calm and safe throughout.”
