Where is the event?
The event is held inside Hedingham Castle, Halstead CO9 3DJ.
Is there parking?
Parking is all FREE. There is a short walk from your car to the castle.
Can I leave my children at the event?
No, children must have a fully paying parent or guardian supervising them at all times. You can get involved with the children or watch from the within the room during each activity.
Why do I have to purchase an adult ticket?
As we require parents / guardians to be with their children at all times they also have to purchase a ticket. In a similar way to attending a theme park with children you still have to buy a ticket. (You may also learn a spell or two!)
Will there be any food / drinks?
Tea, coffee and light snacks will be available to purchase on the second floor.
Can I bring my pushchair / buggy.
The Castle cannot accommodate buggies or pushchairs so you will be asked to leave these in our buggy park at your own risk.
Is there disabled access?
Unfortunately there is no disabled access, as the castle is a historic monument. There are no lifts or stair lifts inside the castle.
Can carers go free?
Any registered carers attending, please add your adult ticket to the basket, then enter the coupon code “CARER2023” for a £13.95 deduction on your booking, equaling a free adult ticket. Only one carer ticket can be added per booking. Please be aware there is NO disability access ie lifts inside the castle, and the stairways are extremely narrow as it is an original unchanged historic building.
