Sledmere Spooky Barn!

Sledmere House 2023


The Brief

We know the atmospheric Sykes Barns at Sledmere House very well from the Magical Santa Experiences we’ve been creating at the venue since 2020. The maze of red brick period buildings lends itself beautifully to a walkthrough experience and we were delighted to be asked to help give a new walkthrough format to the family friendly Spooky Barn Halloween experience.


What We Did

We worked with the new event manager to understand what worked about the previous Spooky Barn events and how it could be improved. Together we worked through the logistics and timings of a hosted event – where groups of audience are guided through different beautifully atmospheric dressed spaces, taking part in activities and meeting characters, as part of an overall narrative. Our magical animals and wizards theme ensured that we brought other elements of the event – including animal handling – into a cohesive whole whilst being on theme with Sledmere Farm’s status as a rare breeds centre.


The Result

We delivered nine successful days of the Spooky Barn experience and the audience feedback with regards to the new format has been overwhelmingly positive!
