After Dark Tours at The Commandery

But once the sun disappears, The Commandery will host some spooky after-dark Halloween tours on Tuesday.

Listen in to unsettling tales on a guided tour with a Halloween twist, unearth the history of the building and discover paranormal activities.

To experience this one-of-a-kind thrill, the admission fee for the 14 and overs only event is £14 per person, with tours running at 6:30pm, 8pm and 9:30pm.

Sea Legs Puppet Theatre: The Ugly Ducklings

Once the Halloween spookiness has faded, a theatrical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Ugly Duckling' is set to visit the Number 8 Arts Centre in Pershore on Thursday.

Produced by Sea Legs, known for children's puppet theatre, the wholesome, family friendly show is sure to warm hearts.

Adult tickets are £8 and £6 for children under 16 years, with showtime set for 2pm.

Fireman Sam Saves The Circus

The family friendly entertainment continues at Redditch Palace Theatre on Thursday, with a production Fireman Sam Saves the Circus.

When Norman Price stars in the circus when it visits Pontypandy, but a tiger escapes and faulty lights cause mayhem, there's only one man to save the day.

Running at 12pm and 3:30pm, tickets are £18 for adults, and £17 for under 16's, with family deals also available online.
