THOUSANDS of people flocked to Chalfont St Giles for the Chiltern Open Air Museum’s (COAM) Halloween Spectacular.

Over 90 volunteers helped staff the sold out event, which was held on Friday (October 28) and part of Culture 24s Museums at Night.

Bucks Blades students from Bucks New University volunteered as scarers on the Museum’s scary walk, and it was also supported by two teams of corporate volunteers from Equinox and Sirius Decisions.

Visitors were kept entertained by a ghost horse rider, a fire-breather, marshmallow toasting, craft making and for those brave enough a scary walk with live scarers, along with a range of other activities.

Sue Shave, museum director, said: “This is always the museum’s biggest event of the year raising thousands of pounds to help keep it running.

“This year’s event was extremely successful and there were some fantastic costumes.

“The Halloween Spectacular has developed a reputation for being quite spectacular.

“Each year we see a significant growth in the numbers of people attending, and this year the event was sold out.

“I am immensely proud of my team of staff and volunteers for the creativity and sheer hard work that they put into making this a successful event.”
