Scarefest2015: Whats it all about?

Scarefest 2015 was hosted at Gilwell Park for the second year, it was an opportunity for Scouts and Explorers to try all sorts of adventurous activities in the dark and of course with a special spooky twist for Halloween.

With some freak weather covering the park with thick fog, the stage was set for a fun filled and thoroughly creepy weekend!

The Explorers from 2nd Stretham Hill told us they felt like it was a festival for Halloween.

Sarah from Scout Radio caught up with Scarefest’s organiser Chris Vickers ,he wanted to thank all the volunteers who have worked so hard to put the event together and will be working until Tuesday to dismantle it! Chris also had a message for everyone who came along:

If people have got any feedback, good or bad, it would be really really good to hear. We hope you enjoyed the event and we look forward to seeing you again next year!

By far the consensus was that Scarefest was the scariest in it’s 8 year history, with the Scouts being sure to tell us how horrifying the live mazes were. The weekend was concluded with a large and spectacular fireworks display and laser light show, reason enough to book for next year!
