One of the most popular Halloween events for all of the family in the North East is set to return this autumn, bigger and better than before.

Family Fright Fest, which is held at Lintz Hall Farm in Burnopfield, is a family version of the Psycho Path, the award-winning adult Halloween event, which has been popular with North East celebrities.

Organisers of Family Fright Fest, which is suitable for youngsters of all ages, have now announced what people can expect from this years’ event.

The event will have the largest fairground it has ever had, as well as daily stage shows including a superhero spectacular and a Halloween version of the Disney hit, Frozen.

There will also be scare mazes, a fun and games barn, street theatre where youngsters can interact with characters, a pumpkin picking experience, and prizes and giveaways for those who visit in fancy dress costumes.

There will also be street food vendors, courtesy of North East favourites, such as Acropolis, Doughvine Desserts, Ronnie’s Fish and Chips, Twisted Chick Fried Chicken, Fat Hippo and Truly Madly Pizza.

The event will end with a spectacular parade, which will be held at 3.45pm.

Family Fright Fest will run every Saturday and Sunday, from Thursday, October 14 until Friday, October 29.

Tickets are priced at £6 for children under 15 years of age, £9 for adults, with family tickets available for five people for £36.

Christiano Crawford, director and one of the creators of Psycho Path and Family Fright Fest, said: “Every year we add more and more attractions and have more and more surprises for youngsters.

“Family Fright Fest has become as popular as Psycho Path because children just love all of the Halloween style adventures they can have which can be a little bit scary but only in a way that they love.

“We know it’s going to be another brilliant season and we hope as many people as possible will enter into the spirit of the event and dress up.”
