Spook-tacular fun at the Family Library during Hop-tu-Naa week

There is a week of spook-tacular fun at the Family Library to celebrate Hop-tu-Naa.

To coincide with the autumn half-term school holiday, staff at the library have laid on a litany of seasonal specials to get into the spirit of things.

‘We have a week full of events for children of all ages,’ said librarian in charge Mary Cousins. ‘We hope to see lots of people turnip to enjoy the Hop-tu-Naa events.’

Tuesday also sees the first of a two-part Electrifying Haunted House workshop. Participants can create a spooky house with electric lights, with craft materials and lighting circuit provided. Tuesday’s session and Thursday’s follow-up, run from 2pm-3pm and it is £5 per session. Bring along a couple of boxes about the size of a wine box. The sessions are available for children aged seven and over.

Wednesday, October 29, will have a Ghost Puppets workshop, for children aged eight and over. It runs from 1.30pm to 3pm and admission is £3.

Thursday evening (October 30) sees the Family Library, which is next to the children’s playground in Westmoreland Road, Douglas, hosting a Hop-tu-Naa concert. There will be music and traditional tales for all the family. Tickets for the concert, which runs from 6.30pm-7.30pm, are £3.

October 31 is Freaky Friday Fun Day at the library, from 10am-3pm.

Throughout the Hop-tu-Naa celebrations, the library is also holding a Crazy Critters competition, encouraging library users to create a creepy character, using templates that can be collected from the library.
