During the October half-term holiday period, the AA four-star Sandbanks Hotel in Poole, part of the FJB Collection, has organised an exciting programme of activities for guests holidaying or visiting the hotel.  Based directly on Poole’s renowned blue flag Sandbanks beach, the hotel is set to host a Spooktacular Halloween event from Wednesday October 31 to Friday November 2 from 4pm to 9pm.

Families will be able to enjoy a range of themed fun-filled activities, creative pursuits and face painting.  Children under 12 can join the Funsters in the Dead Man’s Chest while anyone over the age of 12 can take a trip down to Smuggler’s Walk.

Families will be able to enjoy food and drink while taking in the breath-taking dusk views of Sandbanks beach as well as Old Harry Rocks and the Purbeck Hills in the distance; only of course if they arrive early enough!

Greg Giles, Group Operations Director at the FJB Collection, says: “As well as a range of activities taking place from 31 October to 2 November, our Funsters Entertainment team will be providing high-energy games and competitions which help children to develop their skills, strengths and imagination.”

Tickets for the event are priced at £5 per person and pre-booking for Wednesday October 31 is essential.  For further information please visit www.sandbankshotel.co.uk or telephone 01202 707377.
