Sealife gets spooky for Halloween

Visitors can see a North Tyneside attraction in a new light as it gets set for fright night.

Tynemouth’s Blue Reef Aquarium will be offering a Halloween Torchlight Tour on Saturday, showing the sealife in a spooky new way.

The tour will be led by a marine expert, with only torches to light the way.

There will also be a fancy dress competition, and staff will be joining in the fun, donning scary costumes.

The event rounds off a week of Halloween at the Aquarium activities, with daily talks, feeding demonstrations and encounters taking place, including Face Your Fears rockpool encounters.

Everyone who arrives in fancy dress this week will receive £2 off admission charges.

The torchlight tour takes place at 5pm. Participants must book in advance on 0191 258 1031 and take a torch along.
