October What's On Guide - Half Term & Halloween Ideas



I absolutely love Autumn and Spooky Season!

Lots of people have been asking me if I know what is on for Halloween, so I thought I would get my guide ready. I will be adding to this guide as and when places release details, why not save this post and come back to it.


This guide also includes Ideas for October Half Term, I will also share a roundup of Half Term events on social media too. *Please double check as some events may have already sold out*


Just to make you aware that most of the North East half term is 21st-29th October although Northumberland seem to be a bit later 28th October - 5th November
