Halloween Party - 27 October 2012

Woodchester Mansion hosted its annual Fund-raising Halloween Party on Saturday 27 October 2012.

Outside, the evening was best described as 'chilly' but inside the Mansion the atmosphere was warm and a good time was had by all. In addition to the, now traditional, disco, bar and food, tours of the Mansion were on offer this year. These tours took on a spooky nature as Woodchester Mansion Volunteer tour guide, Susan Bingham, and Paranormal Investigator Chris Howley led their parties by tourchlight into the dark parts of the Mansion,where they told ghostly stories about the house. Fortunately, all who went on tours returned and were none the worse for their experience. In fact, a great many of them actually seemed to enjoy the experience.

The standard of fancy dress was very high and the three prize-winners (shown below) were thrilled to be chosen. Congratulations to Kara and Paul and to Kieran for their wonderful costumes.
