A series of spooky activities will take place at town museums for Halloween.

Colchester Museums will stage a range of events during October half-term, including osteoarchaeology classes at Colchester Castle - where attendees will uncover the secrets of bones to help unlock clues to the past.

Tim Young, Colchester Borough Council portfolio holder for business and culture and deputy leader of the council, said: “There are some fantastic spooktacular sessions available this half-term and I would like to encourage families to come along to Colchester’s museums this holiday and get involved.”
