Scare Academy was scary! Reptiles and a horrible tarantula spider thrilled the half-termers on the last of this two day event. Staff and volunteers turned out in the most imaginative inventions of dress and design; butterflies, fairies, leopards, witches and much more gave the museum a colourful kaleidoscope of shapes and images; a high note to go out on.
But the finale of Halloween is yet to come. On the last Friday of this month ’The Night in the Museum Experience’ returns after popular demand. As in previous years mischievous historical characters come to life and night watch teams help the guards to solve mysteries. I will be there with my fellow performers to add gravitas but also a little fun to the show.
