The Welsh Mining Experience, home to Dram: The Cinematic Experience, was transformed for Halloween Spooktacular and featured all of the traditional events associated with the ‘spooky season,’ including Pumpkin Carving, a Pumpkin Hunt, Face Painting, Arts and Crafts and a special Halloween Show, exclusive to the venue.
Everyone had great fun carving out their pumpkins, with all of the waste recycled through the Council’s kerbside food waste recycling scheme.
