FOR those that dare, two museums in Northwich will be getting into the Halloween spirit by offering spooktacular half-term events.

The Lion Salt Works Museum is offering children the chance to make their own spooky mobiles while Weaver Hall Museum invites kids to create their very own Halloween clay models.

In the lead up to the COP26 summit, a 'Halloween-meets-Climate Change event' will also take place.

Councillor Louise Gittins, leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council: "After the disappointment of missing out last year, this is a spooktacular range of imaginative activities for children this Halloween by West Cheshire Museums.

"In the month of the Climate Change Summit in Glasgow, many are appropriately underpinned by a climate-change message."
