  1. Ooh so much good stuff going on here. I like the sound of Witches, Wizards & Slytherin Day at Lanchester Garden Centre. We might head to Preston Park too as I really enjoyed their halloween event the other year. I'm quite torn as we would like to go away abroad that week too but the kids love halloween so I'm not sure!
