Halloween in Cornwall

There are some spooky events happening this half term for all the family across Cornwall. If you are trying to keep young ones amused, or trying to convince older ones it's not that embarrasing to be seen with you, there is something for everyone this October half term in Cornwall. We've put together the list of events below - but all events in October can be seen on our What's On page.

The Shipwreck Treasure Museum at Charlestown are truning the lights off! But not in a bid to keep the electirc bill down. All the lights are off this Halloween as the museum will be turned into a spooky Lantern trail! Are you brave enough to wander through the dark corridors and listen to the spooky stories along the way? What will you find waiting just around the corner?


This October visitors are invited to explore the Eden Project by twilight - if you dare! You can discover a world of superstitions and traditions at this special time of year – which also sees the return of Eden’s glittering ice rink.
