Starting Saturday 19th October 2019 – Doors open from 9.30am

Hocus Pocus at Eureka!

Bubble, bubble, there’s toil and trouble at Eureka! this October half term, as a coven of witches and a convocation of wizards have flown in to use the children’s museum for their official Halloween recruitment drive.

The Eureka! Witches and Wizards will be putting apprentice magicians aged 0-11 years through a series of tasks and tests before they pledge allegiance, while mystical characters from Black Knight Historical will be conjuring up some truly magical classes in the Eureka! Theatre.

Spooky fancy dress encouraged! The museum will be opening its doors early at 9.30am on weekdays throughout half-term for eager visitors wanting to get their magic on before lunchtime.
