Magic yourself up a family day ticket to the Halloween Hocus Pocus event in our prize draw

Borde Hill Garden near Haywards Heath always has plenty on in the school holidays and October half term means it’s Halloween Hocus Pocus time, with daily events in the marquee and around the grounds.

There will also be magic shows (Fri 26) and face painting and balloon modelling (Sat 27). Children can also take part in the pumpkin carving contest and add their lantern to the big Pumpkin Glow on Sun 28.
