Last Halloween, Frogmore’s peaceful old factory was transformed in to horrifying Factory of Fear by the ghouls at Scarenation. Just when you thought you were safe, they’re back once again to scare the pants off the unsuspecting public from October 24th to November 1st!
WARNING: While Scarenation are on site (last 2 weeks of October) there may be minor changes to the normal tour. If you are intending to visit and have mobility problems or bringing someone who has, you are advised to ring first. It is however business as usual here at Frogmore Paper Mill.
If Scarenation’s terrifying Factory of Fear is too much for you, maybe a Halloween themed family fun day is better for you and your little ones!
Hertfordshire Adult and Family Learning Service’s Halloween Family Fun is only £5 per child for two days of tutored Halloween based crafting and fun. Paper making creates entertainment for families to enjoy together!
