Vampires, witches, ghosts and other flying creatures will take over the Helicopter Museum this Halloween.

Volunteers at the Locking tourist attraction have been working hard to construct an on-site spooky graveyard and a haunted helicopter ahead of a family fun day on Sunday.

The museum will be open from 10am to 5.30pm for the fun day.

Normal admission prices apply but any children who go dressed in scary fancy dress will be able to go for free.

The museum’s manager Lee Mills said: “There will be live magic shows, a spooky dance performance, and a very special display of medieval axe-throwing courtesy of the Avalon Axe Vikings.

“For younger visitors there will be balloon-modelling, fancy dress competitions and musical statues, while we dare our more mature visitors to brave the confines of our best ever haunted helicopter walkthrough.”
