Aden to host haunting Halloween event
Join a carnival of curious creatures in the woody wonderland of Aden Country Park for a Halloween night of circus and surprise. The Adenstrom haunting Halloween event will be held on Saturday 27th October at 6.30pm, starting from the courtyard area in front of the Aberdeenshire Farming Museum.
If you’re brave enough, join us for our family fright fest. You will be encouraged to join a parade of puppets, performers and stilt walkers deep into the creepy woods of Aden, but beware, you will not be alone! A haunting host of fiendish monsters will accompany you around every corner.
Music and projections will also be performed before and after the main parade with the Halloween extravaganza coming to a close with a fiery finale in the ruins of the old Aden Estate mansion house. In addition the newly opened Aden Shop and the Aden Café/Restaurant will be open on the night serving hot food, tea and coffee, along with a range of scary merchandise from the shop.
The Adenstrom Halloween event is a youth regeneration project led by Theatre Modo in partnership with the Reaching Out project, Community Planning Partners, Shell and Aberdeenshire Council.
Theatre Modo is working with school, youth and community groups to create the Adenstrom and Maelstrom which will take place on Friday 2nd November in Fraserburgh. So far, nearly 1000 young people have been engaged in the project with over 200 expected to take part the Aden Country Park parade.
Reaching Out Project, Development Officer Liz Scott said:
“This is will be a great event for the young people and families from the Buchan area. The groups have organised a terrific range of performances for the event”.
Neil Shirran, Aden Country Park, Development Officer added:
“This will be a great family friendly event. Aden is the perfect venue for a range of different events, but this may well prove to be the scariest!”
The Halloween event is free, un-ticketed, but donations are welcomed. Please wrap up warm for a wild night in the woods. Fancy dress, lanterns and torches are encouraged.
