A Fenland school is going all out for Halloween next Friday.

Wisbech Grammar School is putting on a torchlight tour of the darker sides of the historic school, taking in basements and winding staircases.

Students in creepy costumes will provide ghostly thrills and a grim feast will be served with not so delectable dishes ranging from beetroot soup, apple cakes and pumpkin cakes to dead man’s fingers hot dogs and blood red punch.

The event, which is now in its third year, is organized by Taste Real Food Fenland, who promote local food and producers.

Alison Sloan, head of food and nutrition at the school, said: “You never know what is going to happen or where a ghoul or ghost might come from next.”
