For the first time ever this year Strokestown Park will run not one, but two family-friendly Hallowe'en events to take place in the mid-term break.
On Saturday 28th October 2017 'Bake a Barmbrack' is a family-oriented baking workshop in which participants can mix the batter for their own barmbrack, all under the supervision of a professional chef. While the barmbracks are in the oven there will be a tour of the galleried kitchen of Strokestown House. Participants can then tuck into a delicious hot buttered slice of their own homemade barmbrack, or take it home to share.
On Tuesday 31st October 2017, at 4.30pm, children of all ages are invited to come along in their finest costumes to take a guided walk in a 'Lantern Parade' through the grounds of Strokestown Park as dusk falls on All Hallows Eve. This promises to be seasonally atmospheric twilight adventure, to get in the mood for the night's trick or treating!
