WALTON Hall is opening its doors for a pre-Halloween spooky showcase.

Murder mystery ‘A Bite with the Count’ will take place at 7.15pm on Saturday, October 29.

It is the first time the venue will stage a Halloween event but Cllr Tony Higgins, executive board member for culture, leisure and community, believes it could be the first of many.

He said: "We hope people who fancy themselves as detectives will be intrigued to come along, enjoy dinner and enter into the spirit of the spooky evening.

"It is certainly the most perfect setting and promises to be very entertaining."

Tickets, priced at £29.50, can be bought in advance from warrington.gov.uk/waltongardens
