Fright Fest: Jumping Jack-o’Lanterns

Why not come along and carve out a pumpkin with us? Will you create a scary face or a haunted house to scare your ghosts away?

This event is run by Lyme Park, House and Garden – National Trust (Lyme Park, Disley, Stockport, SK12 2NX)

Originally a Tudor house, Lyme was transformed by the Venetian architect Leoni into an Italianate palace. Some of the Elizabethan interiors survive and contrast dramatically with later rooms. The state rooms are adorned with Mortlake tapestries, Grinling Gibbons woodcarvings and an important collection of English clocks. The 6.8ha (17-acre) Victorian garden is surrounded by a medieval deer park of almost 566ha (1400 acres) of moorland, woodland and parkland, containing an early 18th-century hunting tower (The Cage). Lyme appeared as ‘Pemberley’ in the BBC’s adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice.
