Visitors to the Winding House museum this half term are in for a spooky treat, with ghoulish Halloween crafts taking place throughout the week. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

On Monday 24th, Wednesday 26th, Thursday 27th and Friday 28th October between 11am and midday, young people will be able to discover Wales’ Halloween tradition of ‘Nos Calen Gaeaf’. They’ll be able to make their own ‘witch’ charm bags or their own ‘Mari Llwyd’ (horses head) to get into the spooky spirit. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Entry to the museum is free, Halloween craft activities are £2.50 per child and booking is needed. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

To take a break from ghosts and witches, why not join the team on Tuesday 25th October for a free art project as part of the national Big Draw campaign. The team will be attempting to recreate the Winding House’s impressive winding engine in giant art. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Located in New Tredegar – with on-site parking, easy access and a tempting coffee shop, the Winding House Museum is a fabulous FREE day out for all the family, with plenty of hands-on activities such as creating prehistoric clay pots, historical dressing up, taking selfies in the medieval stocks or ‘enjoying’ the smells of a WW2 air raid shelter. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
