Halloweden

Join us this October half-term for an all-new Halloweden adventure. We'll be opening late into the evening so that, as the sun sets, you can keep warm by the light of the fire and in a brand-new experience, venture deep into the Rainforest Biome at twilight for a bewitching torchlit trail... if you dare...

All visits to Eden must be pre-booked in advance, including those who visit for free, such as Eden Project Members, existing Annual Passholders and Locals' Passholders, carers and under-fives. 

See what's in store...

Come along to Eden this October half-term as Halloweden returns for another year with an all-new fang-tastic offer. Discover superstitions and traditions of Halloween and venture into the Rainforest Biome to explore cycles in nature at this special time of year.

Uncover the 10 trail points in our Gardens and Biomes to delve deeper into the origins of superstitions on our mysterious Magpie Trail.

Plus, join us in the Pumpkin Patch for wild and wonderful stories, get hands-on in the Tipi with our Weave a Web Workshops (pre-booking required) – and take a spin on our spooky ice rink (additional charge applies).

Enjoy Eden by twilight...

This year for the first time, we’ll be opening late into the evening until 8pm from Saturday 22 – Friday 28 October – so that, as the sun sets, you can keep warm by the light of the fire and in a brand-new experience, venture deep into the Rainforest Biome at twilight for a bewitching torchlit trail.

Halloween puppet show

Settle down for our puppet show

Watch our Citrus Puppet Show and join Azoroso the unlucky witch as she tries to find a cure to her wretched curse. After breaking a mirror Azoroso is destined for seven years of bad luck, but not if she has anything to say about it. Will Azoroso be able to make a potion to save herself from her unfortunate fate, or has her luck already run out? 

This activity is included in admission, no pre-booking required.

Relaxed sessions

We’ll be offering a relaxed session on Sunday 30 October, to allow those who may benefit from a more informal experience, such as those with autism and sensory or communication needs, to enjoy site at their own pace.

This relaxed session will include a 9am puppet show in the Citrus followed by a 10am Weave a Web Workshop experience in the Tipi, for a maximum of 40 people (additional cost applies for the workshop).

Bookings are now open.
