Frightful Fun at the Farm

When? 24 Oct 2020 to 31 Oct 2020
Where? Longdown Activity Farm - New Forest

  • Frightful Fun at the Farm

There’ll be lots of spooky stuff to see and do at Longdown Activity Farm on the run-up to Hallowe’en. Enter the Haunted Barn at your peril – look out for grimacing ghouls, scary skeletons and wicked witches.

Keep your eyes peeled and join in with the Pumpkin Quest – 10 naughty pumpkins have escaped! Children will enjoy spotting the mischievous orange faces around the farm. No prizes, just spookily good fun.

On Tuesday 27th October and Saturday 31st October (only) there’s some extra surprises in the Haunted Barn: meet a real-life barn owl who will be visiting with The Creature Teachers along with some creeeeepy creatures like giant millipedes, spiders and cockroaches. For younger children, zany children’s entertainer, Crazy M will be ready to calm everyone’s nerves in the Haunted Barn on Saturday 24th October and Thursday 29th October (only) with her goofy gags and side-splitting mini-shows.

After all the scary stuff, calm down with our friendly farm animals. Our usual schedule of farm activities including bottle-feeding kid goats and the Animal Encounter Barn will take place throughout each day.



No extra charge on top of normal admissions.
