Join us in 2020 as well for our Celtic Halloween, on 31 October! This year we are organising separate events for children (from 13:00 to 16:00) and adults (from 17:00 until 22:00)!
The Celtic ancestor of Halloween, Samhain was the last day of the Celtic calendar. The word means the end of summer. The Celts believed that on 31 October the boundary between this world and the otherworld became narrow, opening up and allowing the dead and supernatural creatures to cross over to this world.
