Druids of Droylsden October Half Term 2021


 

Image - event posterWe Join D.O.D (AKA: The Druids of Droylsden) as they make their final preparations for the spookiest night in October… All Hallows Eve. Every year this highly secretive ancient order gather its members together to read from the Big Boggart Book, a vast encyclopaedia detailing all the creepy creatures, frightful faeries, ghastly ghosts, and beastly bogies that go bump in the night throughout Droylsden and beyond. Reading this book is an essential task for if all the boggart ceremonies and rituals have not been completed by the stroke of midnight on Halloween then the boggarts will rise up and all manner of mischief will occur!

Thanks to a dark magic ritual gone wrong, all of the chief druids have been turned into garden gnomes and are totally out of action! This means that this year the task of reading the big boggart book has fallen to the druids apprentices… Unfortunately, they are the most hapless, utterly hopeless bunch of apprentices you’ll ever meet. AND to top it all off they’ve already lost 8 pages of the big boggart book!

Come meet the druids at Droylsden library on Saturday 23 October 11am-2pm (no booking required) and help them search for the missing pages by taking a trip around the town centre on an interactive treasure hunt featuring artwork produced by children from Manchester Road and Greenside Primary Schools. The treasure hunt will run from 23 October for the October half term holidays and can be collected from Droylsden Library during their opening hours. If you can solve the clues and find all the pages we all just might make it through Halloween and live to tell the tale!

The druids will also be at the library on Thursday 28 (10.00am-12.00pm) and Friday 29 October (2.00-4.00pm) with an interactive performance, where you can read through the big boggart book and practice the rituals to ward off those pesky boggarts!

Events are free but booking required for 28 and 29 October tamesidelibraries.eventbrite.co.uk.
