Half Term fun at the Caves


Trick or treat yourself to a visit underground this Halloween as we put on a spooktacular programme of events for all the family to enjoy including atmospheric torchlight tours, a ghostly adventure trail and a murder mystery evening.


From October 23-31 we'll be (g)hosting a ghoulish Halloween adventure trail where children can discover the Caves as they search for hidden items and collect a treat at the end (if they don’t get tricked beforehand!). The trail is included with a regular Caves’ entrance ticket. In addition, children can get crafty on 25th, 28th and 29th October, rustling up mason jar lanterns, witches and wizards hats and hanging ghosts at our spooky Halloween craft sessions in the community rooms. Cost £1 per child, payable on the door.


From October 23-29, intrepid underground explorers can experience true darkness by booking an exclusive evening tour and experiencing the Caves and its paintings in a whole new light. Bookings can be made for groups of six people, over ten years of age, who can hear all the tales of the Caves by torchlight and see the infamous Thanet Giant at his glowing best. £50 per group of six. Pre-booking required on the link below.



October 31 there’s still chance to wine, dine and solve a crime as drama group the United Players take over The Caves to present An Inspector Catchpole Mystery – An Ice-Cold Killer.

Set in Victorian Margate, An Ice-Cold Killer sees Inspector Catchpole face his most challenging case to date as he tries to solve the murder of Lady Lardedaah of Northdown Hall. All the detective knows is that she had a deadly secret to die for. Now he must look behind the facades of the numerous suspects and work out who is lying about where they were? Who is hiding desperate secrets? And, who is capable of MURDER….

Tickets are still available for the event on Sunday, October 31 from 7pm-10pm, priced at £40 to include three-course dinner. Guests must be over 16 and will be seated in tables of eight for dinner. Book on the link below.
