We are fast approaching tricks, treats and fireworks, more commonly known as Halloween and Bonfire Night, and there is plenty to enjoy in the Peak District.
Spooky fun at Haddon Hall
With Halloween just around the corner, Haddon Hall is offering some spooky fun. Throughout half-term there will be a family trail in the Hall and the opportunity to create you own Halloween decorations on the 30th and the 31st October. If you are putting the finishing touches on your Halloween costume, visit Haddon Hall and have your face painted! If you’re under 16 years old and wear your costume for your visit you will be admitted free of charge!

Fire Garden at Chatsworth
Chatsworth House is celebrating the season with a fire garden and fireworks on the 31st of October and the 1st of November. This will be a spectacular experience! As you arrive there will be a steel band and visitors in the form of 17th century aristocrats will create all sorts of mischief. The gardens will be ablaze in a sculptural scene of flame and foliage, and on the South lawn you will find fire dances and circus artistry. The evening will end in a stunning display of fireworks.
The gates open at 6pm, the fireworks begin at 8pm and the garden closes at 9pm. Admission is £16 for adults and £12.50 for children – click here for more information.
Bonfire Night at The Peacock
Remember, remember the 5th November…Or in our case the 4th November! The Peacock will be hosting a Bonfire Night for local residents, including a hog roast from Coates butcher, and a stunning fireworks display set to music from Britannia Fireworks. The Peacock bar will also be serving mulled wine, local ale and soft drinks.
We have 200 free tickets on offer that can be collected from The Peacock, Coates Butcher or Britannia Fireworks Shop in Matlock – first come first served!
As always, The Peacock offers the perfect place to sleep and dine for your Autumnal getaway.
Enjoy the season!
