A SIX-DAY event is coming to Dorchester this Halloween season.

From Monday October 25 to Saturday October 30, the Shire Hall Historic Courthouse Museum will be home to spooky family-friendly fun.

The museum, in High West Street, brings 200 years of justice and injustice - with interactive galleries, immersive cells and courtroom.

A spokeswoman from the museum said: "Halloween is our favourite time of the year, so we're delighted to welcome families back for a week packed full of spooky and fun activities."

Children will be able to take part in a slippery slime-making workshop from 11am to 3pm each day - as well as other events.

As part of the six-day programme, Shire Hall is hosting Spells in the Cells, an evening of magical 'cauldron' cocktail-making on September 30.

Tickets: adults £9.50 and children £5.
