From 22 October to 6 November, kids can eat lunch for free after enjoying a Halloween-inspired obstacle course at Powis Castle and Garden.

At Powis Castle and Garden, a child aged 12 and under can enjoy a delicious lunch at the castle’s Courtyard Café in Welshpool every time you spend £5 in the café throughout this October half term.

Jessicca Jones, Food and Beverage Manager, said:

“We know times are hard for families at the moment, so we hope we can take some of the pressure off and make half term a little easier for parents or guardians through this offer.”

To be eligible all you have to do is spend £5 in the café and you’ll get a free kid’s lunch box filled with a sandwich, drink, piece of fruit, crisps and flapjack. For example, if you have three children with you and you spend £15 in the café, you will qualify for three kids lunch boxes.

As well as this brilliant offer, a spooktacular trail will be available in the garden for the duration of the English and Welsh half terms.

From spiders, bats and witches’ hats, to toads, ghosts, cats and rats, this trail is set to put everyone in the mood for Halloween. Young explorers and their families can follow the pumpkin way-markers through the garden as they walk, run and jump their way round the trail.

Sarah Johnson, Visitor Operations and Experience Manager at Powis Castle, said:

“Without being too scary and spooky, the trail brings together all the fun and thrill that comes with Halloween. Giant furry spiders will pave the way down the Yew Walk, whilst bean bag rats will need throwing into a large cauldron before you move on to the task. Don’t forget to get a ghostly family selfie on the Orangery Terrace.

“We love nothing more than providing fun activities for everyone to enjoy. We hope these half term offers encourage people to get out of the house and explore.”

It’s free to take part in the trail but normal admission prices apply: National Trust members go free and for non-members a standard adult ticket is £14 and child £7 (under 5s go free). Please note: due to a technical fault the site is only able to take cash payments at admission and in the café and shop until further notice – please see website and social media channels for the latest updates. Dogs on leads are allowed in the garden from 1 November. Terms and conditions apply for the ‘kids eat free’ offer:
