Halloween Events in South Wales.

Sorry this is late folks, but as they say, better late than never! I've put together a list of Halloween events in South Wales, I'm sure there are more out there, but these are the places we'd love to attend as a family or just us grown-ups! There's so much more out there these days to celebrate Halloween, even we're a bit overwhelmed with all the choices, so hopefully this list will help you decide what suits your style and your budget…

St Fagans National Museum of History

On Sunday 29th and Monday 30th October St Fagans opens its arms to Halloween and all things spooky! There's a special effects display across the site, craft workshops, ghost stories for the old and the young, pumpkin carving demonstrations, Halloween games, a lantern parade and the burning of the Wicker Man! This looks absolutely amazing, and I'm sure all who attend will have a hauntingly good Halloween! (This event starts at 6pm ad tickets start from £8.)

Jolly Jesters Playcentre

Jolly Jesters love to get in the spirit (get it?!) when it comes to Halloween and this year is no exception. On 31st October The Haunted Castle will be taking over Jolly Jesters and for £6 per ticket (under 1's are free) you can enjoy their disco, take part in fancy dress and games as well as lots of other ghoulish things! They're also hosting a Baby & Toddler Halloween Party on 25th and 26th October from 10-1pm. 

Cardiff Castle

This year you can head to the glorious castle and enjoy a spot of Underground Cinema. There are so many fab films on offer for you to choose from, such as Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas and many more ghoulish delights! Tickets start from £6 but watch out, they're selling fast!


Llancaiach Fawr Manor

This event sounds really sweet and I'm actually sad I we can't make it to this one. There's something for everyone here, from Ghost Tours and Witch Trials for the grown-ups to crafts and discos for the kids, prices start at £5 and it really does look too good to miss. 

Ice Arena Wales

For the grown-ups there's a very special Foam Party at Ice Arena Wales, with optional fancy dress and lots of prizes up for grabs! This fab party is on 27th October from 7.30-10.30pm and it's £8 entry for the whole night. 


Cardiff Museum

I am really excited about this event and no idea whether we will make it or not (I hope we can!). The Museum is hosting a Natural Sciences Halloween Open Day which sees lots of creepy things coming out of cupboards for us to look at and discuss. There's also a Halloween Quiz Trail which will keep everyone entertained and prizes to be won. Catch this event on 31st October between 10-4pm.


Rhondda Heritage Park

Probably one of my favourite places to go, Rhondda Heritage Park have pulled out all the stops woth their latest X-Scream event – check out my interview with Warren here. They're also hosting a child friendly event on Monday 30th and Tuesday 31st October between 11-4.30pm; it will include a pumpkin hunt, arts and crafts as well as pumpkin carving and broomstick making. It looks fab!



As ever the gorgeous fruit picking farm that is Hendrewennol have lots planned for Halloween enthusiasts this year! From 26th October-1st November you can enjoy pumpkin carving, broomstick making, web making as well as a Spooky Village and Terror Trail. There's also lots of hot and cold food on offer too! Prices start from £2.50 for a grounds pass.


I absolutely love Techniquest and this year they're hosting a special After Hours: Halloween. From 6.30-10pm you can challenge yourself with their fab exhibits, solve crimes by following the clues, try out a virtual reality experience and more! Tickets start from £8. 

Also, there's also the option of hosting a party or heading to the pub, both of which might be a bit more expensive than some of these fab events!

Happy Halloween!
