Halloween Ghost Hunt

Something scary comes...


Alnwick’s very own ghost hunt will run from 18 October to 1 November.   Halloween is the time of year when spirits, ghosts, fairies and bogles who usually haunt and inhabit other places around Northumberland come into the town.

Ghosts will be hiding in 20 shop windows, with a further 20 making an appearance in Bailiffgate Museum & Gallery.   Entry forms for the competition can be picked up in participating shops, from Bailiffgate and downloaded from the Bailiffgate website.

 Two prizes will be awarded: a £10 book token and a Bailiffgate goody bag for successfully spotting all 40 and a £5 book token and goody bag for finding the 20 hiding in Bailiffgate (winners to be drawn from a hat). 

 Have fun hunting for a vampire who lived under Alnwick Castle in the 12th century and came out to feast on the townsfolk at night; or see if you can spy Olaf the Viking Prior in town for his annual visit from Lindisfarne Priory.  Or you might spy the ghost of Emily, from Haggerston Castle or Queen Mab, Queen of the Fairies usually resident under Old Fawdon Hill in the Simonside Hills.
