A Spellbinding Halloween Trail, 17 October – 1 November 2020

Halloween Half Term is the time for all apprentice witches and wizards to put their skills to the test to become a fully-fledged expert in magic. Ballimore the wizard has been practicing his spells, but has unfortunately turned his fellow wizard, Lumos, into a guinea pig!  Can you help Ballimore by completing all the challenges on a story trail around the Garden, discovering the magic word to turn Lumos back into a boy?

Put on your cloak, grab your broomstick, wave your wand and fly across to the ‘Borde Hill Academy of Witches & Wizards’.
