On Sunday 27 October RSPB Sandwell Valley nature reserve opens its doors to Halloween.

Visitors will have the chance to join in the spooky celebrations by entering the fancy dress competition as their favourite Halloween character. Visitors will also be able to test their bravery by following a scary ‘trick or treat’ trail around the nature reserve.

Visitors are invited to join the ‘spirit’ of Halloween from 11am until 3pm. There will be many exciting activities including making fright lights (pumpkin carving), face painting, fiendish feeders, monster mobiles and lots of other creepy crafts.

Nicky Willner, spokesperson for RSPB Sandwell said: “This is going to be a fun packed event for the whole family. Last year, Halloween Howls was so popular that we ran out of pumpkins! So make sure you book your pumpkin early to avoid disappointment.”

Pumpkin carving is a bookable activity and costs £3.50 per pumpkin for RSPB members and £5 for non members. The nature reserve requests a small donation for face painting and fiendish feeders. All other activities are free.

To book a pumpkin fright light or for more information, please call 0121 357 7395, email or visit our website at

How you can help

Nature in the UK is in trouble and some of our more familiar garden species are amongst those suffering serious declines. We can all help by giving nature a home where we live.
