There are plenty of family activities to do this half term, and Halloween this photo gallery takes a look at some of them.
From pumpkin picks to tunnels of terror and ghost hunts, there is plenty for families to do this half term and Halloween.
As Halloween approaches, we have compiled some of the events that are running through either the half term week or on selected dates.
Below are nine family activities to do in the Banbury area this October half term and Halloween.
1. Tunnel of Terror
The Tunnel of Terror is held at 75 The Fairway, Banbury, on Saturday October 28, Sunday October 29 and on Tuesday October 31 from 4.30pm until 8.30pm. The tunnel is Banbury mother Tracey Kovac's creation and has been running for the past three years. The terrifying tunnel accepts donations for entry, and all the money raised will go towards the Let's Play Project charity. Photo: Submitted Image

The pumpkins are then judged online, and the top five entrants will receive a prize. All of the money raised will go towards the Kings Sutton Preschool. Photo: Submitted Image
