Witches & Wizards Week

19th October 2018


Lakes Aquarium is throwing snakes, toads, bats and creepy creatures in to the pot to make a spellbinding week of events.

‘Witches and Wizards Week’ runs from Monday 22nd October until Friday 26th October, with a daily pumpkin quiz trail, creepy creature handling sessions and cringe worth crafts it is a week not to be missed.

Special guests in the aquarium include South Cumbria Bat Group who will be delighting visitors with all things bat related on Mon 22nd, Tues 23rd, Wed 24th and Fri 26th October.

Plus why not make a real ghostly day of it and arrive in style on board the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Train. Purchase a combined aquarium and train ticket at Haverthwaite and those children in fancy dress get FREE travel and entry into the aquarium.

All children must be accompanied by a paying adult, themed trains running Monday – Friday ONLY.
