The ghoulish dance followed the marriage of its favourite character, Esmerelda.

Tulleys Farm owner Stuart Beare said: “The US phenomenon of scream parks has really taken off in the UK. So for us to stay as the industry leaders over here, we knew we really had to take our attractions to the next level this year and up to the standard in America. The amazing team that sits behind the Shocktober Fest event have worked tirelessly over the past year to bring this ambition into reality.”

The team at Tulleys won the ScareCon award for the best street theatre this year.

They have also won the UK’s best Halloween attraction at the Screamie awards for the past eight years running.
