Steaming Spooktacular


disabled access

Family friendly activities include a ‘Ghosts and Ghouls' dress up competition for children with prizes available in three age groups, spooky face painting and Halloween-themed colouring competitions, museum trails, and word searches. Families are encouraged to bring their own spooky torches to explore the museum exhibits, however the star attraction of the evening will be the steaming of the impressive Basford Beam Engine.

Museum volunteers will be dressed up as all manner of scary creatures and a tarot card reader will entertain the adults. Delicious, warming refreshments including burgers, hot dogs, mushy peas and hot drinks will be available for purchase, in addition to candyfloss, roasted chestnut and vintage sweet stalls. The entry charge to the steaming event is £6 for two adults and up to 3 children or £3 for concessions with separate charges will apply for the food and entertainment stalls.

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
