Eastgate House is being transformed into a spooky mansion this half term and there are some spooky historical facts to discover. Children can explore free of charge and those in fancy dress will also receive a sweet treat from our special cauldron,
On Thursday, 26 October, there is a chance to meet a Victorian governess and discover what life was like when the house was a Victorian boarding school. Then on Friday, 27 October, kids can make their own Halloween masks, inspired by the mysterious faces which can be found all round the house. Both events run from 10am to 4pm and are free as part of the half term offer.
Admission is free for a child, if they are accompanied by a paying adult. The offer is valid throughout the week. The house is open on Saturday, 21 October, Sunday, 22 October, Wednesday, 25 October, Thursday, 26 October, Friday, 27 October, Saturday 28 October and Sunday 29 October, from 10am to 5pm.
There will also be an evening of classic ghost stories, especially for grown ups, on Wednesday, 1 November from 7pm to 9pm. Good Stuff Productions will present a selection of spooky fireside tales, read by Kent actor Guy Wade. Visitors will also have the chance to share their own stories. Tickets cost £7 each (10% discount for Friends of Eastgate House) including a hot drink served in the interval. Buy your tickets quickly as there are only 40 places available. Tickets can be purchased at Eastgate House. Any remaining tickets will be available on the night. Doors open at 6.30pm. Please note that Classic Ghost Stories is for over 16s only.
