Head to Capital E to unearth the hidden treasure and spooky secrets of Chaos Cove– a safe sanctuary for littlies. Test your nerve and explore Eerie Island where sea shanties fill the air and pirates roam unguarded. Huddle together in the Ghoul’s Galley (you’ll be safe there), but don’t get caught, you might be forced to walk the plank. In the midst of it all, for the braver soul, a haunted shipwreck, The Nameless, lies in the darkness undisturbed… waiting, its crew rumoured to wander the wreckage.
We won’t be there to guide you through the dark and treacherous trail, so bring a torch! It’s no time to be afraid of your own shadow. There’s something for the whole family at Wicked Wharf this Halloween…what will you find? Get your costume ready (there are plenty of prizes to be won) and we’ll see you there…if you dare!

Date: Saturday, 1 November
Where: Queens Wharf
When: 4 – 8pm
Price: Under the sails – free, Indoors –gold coin donation
Bring a torch for ghost hunting!
Please note: Date subject to change, please check back on the Capital E website nearer the time
