Can you help out at Haddo's Hallowe'en Magic weekend?
Can you help out at Haddo's Hallowe'en Magic weekend?

Haddo House near Ellon is on the hunt for volunteers to help with its Halloween Magic at Haddo event on Friday 21 and Sunday 23 October (with a possible extra date on Saturday, October 22 if the others are very popular)

Granite City is lighting up the park with coloured lights and some special effects and Haddo is looking for woodland creatures, fairies, sprites, witches and wizards (good and evil) and trolls to populate the park. This will basically involve getting dressed up and having as much fun as you can!

If you’d like to sing, dance or perform that would be fantastic. Or take part in some simple games for the children- for example the children will have to talk to a sprite who will give them a ‘password’ so they can get past the troll and into another area of the park. Or just wander about looking atmospheric…

All children will be with their parents/responsible adult so you won’t be in charge of any kids or expected to run any specific activities.

The event is open from 7pm to 9pm so ideally if you could be available an hour or so before to get organised and for a short time after that. There is a small budget for costumes but if you’ve got your own that would be superb.

If you’d like to help out on either/both nights, or if you know someone who would then please get in touch by calling 01651 851041 and leave a message on the answerphone.
