Halloween Festival – Day Vs Night

Halloween Scary by Night | The BIG Sheep

13th September 2018

At The BIG Sheep Halloween Festival we split our activities into two fantastic experiences… Fun by Day, a great family Halloween event and Scary by Night, still for families but also great for older ones too! For Halloween the park is decorated with lots of Halloween attire, staff are in fancy dress and our rides are themed to make sure you make the most of your Halloween visit to us!

10am until 5pm
Admission prices on the door: Adults £14.95, Children £14.95, Under 3ft tall £6


Fun by Day is the part of our festival designed especially for families with younger children. There is plenty going on throughout the week that all ages will appreciate but for little ones you can’t beat our Fun by Day activities and rides! Take a seat on our Haunted Hayride – a special tractor ride for families around the farm being towed on a trailer behind our tractor! With lots of ‘extra’ Halloween things to spot around the farm you need to keep your eyes peeled! Make sure you explore the Haunted Farmhouse too – newly built for 2018 what secret ghosts will be watching!

Fly through the skies like a witch on her broomstick at our Witches Flying School, have a go on our arachnophobia buckaroo ride, watch out for ghosts on our special Ghost Train Ride around the lake and keep your eyes well and truly open for all the spooky goings on around the site – the paintings in our Haunted Gallery may be watching you!

For £1 take part in our Pumpkin Carving with special guest Simon McMinnis on certain days in the week – grab a pumpkin and see what you can carve in yours! Come dressed in your best Halloween outfits to see if you can win a prize for the best dressed, have your face painted for free and do your best in our Spooky Treasure Hunt around the park to see if you can win a special prize!

At 4.30pm Monday to Friday you can also pre-book your free ticket to see our Halloween Phantomime – Jack and the Giant Pumpkin by Entertainingly Different. Also showing at 6.30pm if you’re staying on for our Scary by Night activities too!

Monday 22nd to Friday 26th October
6pm until 10pm (last admission 8.30pm)
Admission prices on the door: Members £6, Adults £8, Children £8, Under 3ft tall FREE


A family focussed week of evening entertainment you can start off with our Halloween Phantomime by Entertainingly Different at 6.30pm, immerse yourself in Jack and the Giant Pumpkin for free, just book your seat online to avoid disappointment!

At night the ghouls come out to play and so as darkness falls brave families will take on the Field of Screams on our Haunted Hayride around the farm, hold tight as it takes you through the darkest cornfields where terrifying creatures attempt to steal you into the night. As the farm’s crazy inhabitants run free you’ll witness atrocities and frights that will chill you to the bone. This experience is only for the brave!

Our new Haunted Farmhouse comes alive… or not quite… into the evening so explore at your peril, who knows what’s lurking in the next room!

At night our Witches Flying School, Ghost Train, Arachnophobia Ride and Play Barn are all still open so plenty of fun will be had when darkness falls!

Don’t forget to dress up for the occasion – the prizes for best dressed aren’t just for the day time!
