Autumn is now here in full swing and you know what that means... Halloween preparations start now!
I don't know about you but I am very excited to snuggle up in some blankets and binge watch all the Tim Burton films with a bowl of treats - Halloween is one of my favourite seasons.
Whether you are a horror fanatic and fancy tackling a few scare mazes or you want to grab a pumpkin spice latte and wonder down some eerie trails, we have got events here for everyone.
Meanwhile, here are 11 spooky scary things to do in Northamptonshire this Halloween... muahahahaha!
1. Dr Fright's Halloween Nights
We're kickstarting our spooky list with Dr Fright's Halloween in Earls Barton. Why watch horror movies when you can be in one yourself? If you're brave enough, make your way through four scare mazes - each with their own terrifying theme - experiencing jump scares from live actors and special effects. If you manage to make it out of the mazes with dry underwear, you can then unwind with a cold beverage at the Horror Bar. Tickets are on sale now with dates available to book from October 15 to October 31. Address: WHITES NURSERIES, CLAY LANE, EARLS BARTON, NORTHAMPTONSHIRE NN6 0EP
