Organisers of a ‘spooktacular’ Halloween horror event are seeking more recruits 

By on October 2, 2018

Working with Tatton Events, part of the Tatton Group, Immersive North, one the region’s leading attraction and event specialists, is bringing the interactive 15+ horror experience for Halloween, in addition to family friendly activities during half term, October 19th – 28th at Tatton Wood, Yarwood Heath Farm,Altrincham, WA14 3SD.

Created by the evil minds involved in some of the UK’s most successful horror attractions, SCAREWOOD is packed with people’s worst nightmares, taking them through an unreal world made up of phenomenal, horror movie quality sets, routes of terror and most importantly, the most horrific monsters Cheshire has ever seen.

For adults and older children, SCAREWOOD, promises a dark world with a fright in every corner of Tatton Wood, with roaming zombies, demonic forest folk, monsters, creatures of the night and creepy clowns.

During SCAREWOOD, the audience’s journey will take them deep into Tatton Wood where they will be scared out of the wits by the Crypt Keeper and the living dead in Necropilis or by becoming one of the ‘disappeared’ in Folkclaw or the zombies of Section 13’s deadly virus compound.

Richard Cottier of Immersive North, aka The Dark Lord, said: “SCAREWOOD will be an event that will long live in people’s memories and is not to be missed. The audience are truly part of the show but need to be warned – they might have nightmares for days to follow, it’s that scary!

“There are still great opportunities for local people to enjoy our six nights of hell by being part of the event. As the Dark Lord, I am looking for more zombie soldiers, as well as people to help back stage – it’s perfect for people looking for work experience in theatre, the arts, make up and set design.

“The Dark Lord needs you – join up now and be part of the most terrifying Halloween experience ever in these parts.”

There will also be daytime fun for all the family, with CACKLEWOOD, when youngsters can trick or treat on the Terror Trail, hear spooky stories at the pumpkin carving patch, sing along to a ghoulish pantomime and enjoy face painting, slime and street food.

And as the sun begins to set there will be a lantern walk deep into the woods for one final ghost story before teatime.

Richard added: “With CACKLEWOOD the emphasis is on fun, not fear, because it’s not out and out scary.  This Halloween, whatever your age, you can enjoy a truly wonderful time from lighthearted spooky fun for kids, to being scared out of your wits for adults.”
