Huish Halloween 2021

Huish Halloween Cancelled

Unfortunately we have had to cancel this event. Leaders who had booked tickets will have received an email from us. Please contact us on events@huishwoods.org.uk if needed.

We understand this will be upsetting to all the young people wanting to attend the event, we would like to convey this has been a very difficult decision for the team. We haven’t undertaken this decision lightly and appreciate your understanding in these difficult circumstances.


We are excited to invite all Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers in Somerset to an action packed event at Huish Woods.

The main event will be on Saturday 30th October between midday and 8pm. A limited number of groups will also be able to camp from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, with a film night, wide games and food.

This year’s event will work on a token based system – every young person will get a number of tokens at the beginning of the weekend and they can use them on whichever activities they choose. There will be opportunities throughout the weekend for them to earn more too.

Provisional bookings for this exciting weekend will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis from 10th September and we will need final numbers confirmed by 4th October.

Huish Woods Member groups with allowance will not be charged for Camping/Visitor fees.

There will be a 20% deposit required from the 4th October, after final numbers have been confirmed.

Unfortunately, young people can only attend the event as part of a Scout Group, not on an individual basis.

There may be some activities, such as shooting and axe throwing, that will not be available for the younger sections.


Huish Woods Needs You!

To run such an action packed weekend, we need volunteers to help the Huish Woods Team with supervising activities, running games, assisting with arts and crafts, decorating the woods and creating the trails. If you think you can give us a hand, please get in touch – we would love to hear from you! (halloween@huishwoods.org.uk).


Cancellation Policy

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we may have to cancel the event with short notice. By 10th October, we will update the nominated contacts with our expected plan. If we have to cancel the event after this date, we will offer a full refund (minus £2 per ticket which covers the cost of a pumpkin per young person, which you will still receive). Camping and visitors fees will not be charged.

If you decide to cancel your booking after 4th October, we will not be able to refund your deposit.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
