The National Trust has announced a series of events taking place in the West Midlands this autumn.

Wightwick Manor and Gardens

Between October 21 and October 31 Wightwick Manor and Gardens, Wolverhampton, will host Family Hallowe’en Half Term Fun with children invited to don their most frightening fancy dress and take part in an outdoor pumpkin trail.

At Kinver Edge on October 23 there will be apple pressing and hands-on crafts at the Trust's Rock Houses.

And on October 24 and 26 the same site will host lantern making sessions before there is a procession of lights and pumpkins around the woods of Kinver Edge.

Finally there will be a Pumpkin Festival at Moseley Old Hall from October 23 to October 29 where people can carve pumpkins and take the innards home.

A spokesperson for the National Trust, said: "Autumn is the perfect time to get outside with the family and create unforgettable moments.

"And with all kinds of events from fancy dress to pumpkin carving to lantern making, it’ll be impossible for the kids to get bored this autumn half term.

"You could eat an apple straight from the tree, catch a falling leaf or go on a nature walk at night."
