Head along to Flagstaff Hill for spooky fun on Friday the 13th

Calling all aspiring witches and wizards! Friday is the 13th, so join in some spooky fun at Flagstaff Hill Maritime Museum.

Children can dress up as Harry, Hermione or Ron or their other favourite witches or wizards and join in a range of magical activities such as spooky slime making and decorating creepy crawly biscuits, before enjoying a movie.

There will also be Harry Potter-inspired magic wand making and magical games. 

After the included hotdog lunch, Roald Dahl favourite The Witches, which is ideal for children aged 8-13 will be screened.

Parents can retreat to the Toasty Tearooms which as been dubbed the parents lounge.

Tickets for Friday Flix are $15 per child, adults free. 

Participants are advised to arrive before 10am. The day finishes at 2.30pm. 

Flagstaff Hill service manager Paul Pinkerton said the village had reinvented its school holiday activities to offer families a huge variety of fun with its Little Winter program. 

“We have introduced themed days for greater engagement and learning opportunities, and we’ve also got the Triton Woodworkers banging away in the village helping families construct their own wooden creations every day of the school holidays,” he said.

“Themed days include Maremma Mondays, Whale Wednesdays and Friday Flix where activities are themed around a film that is watched in the afternoon.

“The new little winter program along with the introduction of the lolly shop and gourmet toastie menu in the tearooms has seen a leap in numbers compared to previous years.” 

There is also daily craft and cooking sessions at 11am and 2pm.

Mr Pinkerton said there was a fantastic turnout to the first Friday Flix pirates and mermaids day with reports of kids making new friends and parents thrilled with the included lunch for the whole family.
