Halloween Events in Sussex at Drusillas 2023

Halloween Shriek Week 

21st October - 29th October

Looking for some of the best Halloween events in Sussex for kids? Shriek Week at Drusillas Park (21st-29th October) is the perfect place to bring the kids for a family-friendly, fun-filled, and spooky Halloween week!

Drusillas, which is located between Brighton and Eastbourne, always conjures up oodles of eerie excitement and seasonal surprises to keep your little horrors half term happy!

Haunted Heights

Updated for 2023 we dare you to venture through the creepy cobwebbed corridors of Haunted Heights - Drusillas' live action haunted house experience - into the terror-tory of sin sisters, Hocus & Pocus as they play hide and shriek with the unsuspecting public. Deep at the heart of Haunted Heights lies a ghostly secret; thrill seekers are invited to knock on the trap door and discover the spook-tacular surprise within. Will you dare to get into the spirit of things? 

Mummy Mayhem

Missing from the tomb of Mungo, an ancient Mummy has been seen wandering through the shadowy pathways of the twisted terror maze. Enter through the old temple ruins and unravel the mystery within…but take heed you don’t come to a dead end! This live action maze adventure could bring any twists and turns to the story... terrible things creep through the quiet waiting to pounce!

Sugar Skull Witch

She floats, she glides, she slides and sneers, she welcomes the dead back from hundreds of years, keep out of her way and stay well ahead, if you wish to escape the Land of the Dead! Our wickedly stylish live action Sugar Skull Witch will be making appearances throughout the day gracefully and ghoulishly gliding around the Park on 21st - 26th October!  Performance times: 12.15 - 12.55pm / 13.30 - 14.10pm / 14. 55 - 15.35pm.

Spider's Den

Our super spider experts will be taking over the Discovery Centre to create a 'Spider's Den' with their eight-legged friends on 27th, 28th, & 29th October to teach you all a little more about these amazing creatures! Spiders are so misunderstood, so come along and listen to 'Tarangela' and Ray tell you all about arachnids and why they are actually amazing! (Spider talk times TBC)

Freaky Photo Opportunities

Make sure your phone battery is full as we have lots of spooky, silly, and terror-ific photo opportunities all around the Park! PLUS we're running a competition for the best Halloween photo shared during a visit to Shriek Week, with the chance to win a family ticket for four! Take a 'Halloweeny' photo somewhere at Drusillas and post it to Instagram by 31st October tagging in @drusillaspark to be in with a chance to win. Good luck!

Terrifying Treats

Give your taste buds something to scream about with delicious Halloween-themed biscuits and cakes, seasonal Starbucks drinks, and doughnuts with 'blood' sauce!
