St Michaels Resort sponsors Falmouth Oyster Festival for its 25th anniversary
Proudly Cornish in its aesthetic and outlook, St Michaels Resort,...
With summer festivals and beach days already a distant memory, the team behind Love Newquay, a part of Newquay Business Improvement District (BID), have announced that the holiday resort will be THE place for the whole family to visit this coming October half-term.
Over the past few years, Halloween lovers have made their way to the Cornish destination for the crazy Zombie Crawl. For 2023, the Love Newquay team have crafted a week-long itinerary across the town. T
he Headland Hotel, a grand yet imposing Victorian building that looks proudly over the north Cornish coast, returns to its former situation as the home of The Witches. The hotel became the location for the 1990 film adaptation of the classic novel written in 1983 by children's author Roald Dahl. For the Spooky Newquay week, terrifying treats are on the menu as the iconic five-star hotel introduces the Wickedly Witchy Afternoon Brew, running from the 1st until the 31st of October. It's the first time the themed afternoon tea will be hosted in the stunning Restaurant RenMor, which opened at the luxury hotel in May after a major renovation to The Samphire.
The Headland's executive head chef, Gavin Edney said: "It is great for us as chefs to have the opportunity to get creative with this theme and guests will be immersed in a mystical world. Our iconic location and sublime new restaurant will be transformed and allow diners to watch the waves crashing into the rocks as they enjoy wonderfully wicked treats."
The grand freak-all finale will be what's thought to be the South West's only Zombie Crawl. On Saturday 28th October. Thrill-seekers can expect the streets of the coastal location to be transformed into an otherworldly spooktacular experience as hundreds of participants flood into the town to witness the most frightening but fun event of the year!
The 2023 Spooky Newquay Zombie Crawl experience will begin with multiple rolling workshops for families to enjoy, happening throughout the town including freaky face painting for all the family, Zombie outfit making sessions, pop-up scary moves dance classes and ongoing entertainment in preparation for the creepy Crawl. All of these sessions are free of charge for everyone to attend and will be situated in businesses and locations right throughout the town.
From Wednesday until Sunday 29th October, the Trenance area of the town, which includes Newquay Zoo, Newquay Leisure World and the Trenance Heritage Cottages and Trenance Garden Café will also be running their own Halloween trail for all the family, alongside a Halloween-themed events programme.
Across the resort, Newquay businesses will also be getting involved by 'spoofing their shop fronts, their teams, their wares and their products. 'The scarier the better' is the only criterion in decorating windows, stores, and people, and the best-dressed storefronts will win themselves a prize.
