Visitors to Wirksworth will need to be brave as it transforms into a spookytown for Halloween.

At 7pm both tonight and tomorrow evenings there will be a ghost walk around the town finishing at the Heritage Centre, off the Market Place, for soup and hot drinks.

Tickets cost £10 and can be booked in advance by calling 07966741518 or visiting Ian’s Hairdressers, in Coldwell Street, for tickets.

Between 10am and 4pm on Saturday youngsters can buy a trick or treat bag and clues from Scrumdiddlyumptious for £3.

They will then take a trail around Wirksworth in return for sweets and toys.

The last question can be found at the Spookhous Disco at Country Kitchen. The disco will last until 6pm.

The Wirksworth Heritage Centre will host a Witches Competition and Spooky Crafts and Cave on Saturday. Entry is 50p per child.

Children can pick up a ‘Find the Witches’ competition entry form to find the witches around the town and post their completed entry in the Spooky Postbox at the Heritage Centre for a chance to win £20 The event is sponsored by the Leek Building Society.
