What to do for Halloween

Halloween, a night with roots in pagan tradition was traditionally a time to remember those who had died, a Memorial Day to contemplate and remember the deceased. We all recognise the now traditional Jack O’Lanterns, witches, steaming cauldrons, goblins, ghosts, black cats, bats and skeletons which invoke thoughts and feelings of unseen forces and the spectra of the unknown. These were once very real concerns when nearly everyone believed in witches and unseen forces; now, whether you ‘celebrate’ Halloween or not there is something magical about the ‘spooky day’. Surrounded by mystery, horror, scare and trick-or-treating for kids and adults alike there are many ways to ‘do’ Halloween.

This year we have two fantastic scare events running - Shrewsbury Prison Scream Park in Shropshire and The Street in Somerset. Today we're going to look at Shrewsbury Prison Scream Park (#SPSP).
