Haunted head teachers and spooky students to host torchlit tour of Wisbech Grammar School

SPOOKY students will dress as ghosts and ghouls to host a torchlit tour of Wisbech Grammar School for Halloween.

Visitors will get a chilling welcome at ‘Ghoul School’ - the second event to be organised by Taste Real Food Fenland, which aims to promote local, home-grown food.

Younger pupils will enjoy a fancy dress competition and other Halloween-themed activities at the first event, which starts at 6.30pm on October 31.

This will be followed by the terrifying tour, which starts at 7.30pm.

A feast of blood-red non-alcoholic punch, hot dogs, pumpkin soup, pumpkin bread and Halloween cup cakes will also be on offer.

School play director Alison Clayton, together with her team, will apply the youngsters’ make-up.

Alison Sloan, head of food and nutrition, hinted that it might not just be pupils haunting the classrooms.
