Getting Spalding ready for Halloween with a week of 'fright nights' coming soon
A spooky event in Spalding is set to go ahead at the end of this month - with COVID precautions in place.
The Sessions House of Horrors will see an immersive 'ghoulish' experience take place in the historic former Court House and its grounds, situated in the centre of the town.
Oliver Sneath, who owns the Sessions House with his wife Dorota, said: "We were a bit concerned after Boris Johnson's announcement on Monday night (regarding the new tiered-lockdown measures), but being at 'medium risk' (in the South Holland area) it means nothing has changed."
Strict COVID safety measures will be in place throughout the event, which runs from Monday, October 26, until Halloween on Saturday, October 31. Various timed slots for groups of up to six people are available from 7pm until to 11pm each night and pre-booked tickets will be required.
COVID measures include the use of hand sanitisers, visitors to wear face-coverings and one-metre plus social distancing in place at all times.
"It's a novel concept and they'll be a storyline for people to follow. The house will be literally transformed," Oliver added.
Special lighting and sound effects will complement the experience with actors playing different parts to create 'hair-raising moments.' The event is designed for adults.
