A haunted house and walk through in Northolt at Kempton Avenue, UB5 4HF that has been scaring and delighting people young and old is back for what promises to be its biggest and best event ever.
Organised by Lisa and Jason Cole, the Halloween attraction – between 4:45pm and 9pm – raises money for charity and attracts hundreds of people each year on 31 October who come to witness an event featuring animated props, visual effects, live actors and lighting effects.
This year, proceeds will be going to Meadow House Hospice in Ealing in honour of Mr Cole’s mother who passed away earlier this year after fighting cancer for six years.
Her daughter-in-law Lisa told EALING.NEWS: “We have experienced a lot of cancer within our family, which recently my mother in law died and which she fought for 6 years. She was an avid fan of Halloween, so we are trying to raise as much as possible, in her memory.”
EALING.NEWS spoke to Lisa to find out more about what they do.
So tell us what inspired you to do this and how long have you been doing it for?
We put on tribute shows, outside the front of our home, during the pandemic, to raise money for the NHS. And as we were in lockdown, and we had the equipment here to do things for our own children, we gradually made it bigger and better and entertained the community.
How many charities and which ones are they that have been supported through this?
Throughout the years, we have raised money for various charities including NHS and cancer research. We’ve also supported various other charities such as Help The Heroes and pancreatic and bowel cancer, by offering our services to them, with also benefit do’s!
What do your neighbours make of it?
Our neighbours come and get involved, supporting us. We get a lot of comments, stating that we need more people doing what we do, and also saying that we bring the community together.
How many people have visited you for Halloween over the years?
What’s your favourite horror characters and why?
All of our characters are great. What’s important is how it’s all brought together each year, with the music, lighting, sound effects, to create the full atmosphere, which entertains the community.
What are you planning this year that is different from previous years?
This year we have some bigger animated props, that you can’t miss! We also have the witches hut, where children can come and buy light up candy floss from the Candy Witch!
How long does it take to put everything up and how long will it take to take down?
It started getting built at the start of September. As soon as Halloween is finished, it will all get converted to a Christmas exhibition and a Santa’s Grotto.
Doors open on 31 October 2023 at 4:45pm and the spooky proceeding go on until 9pm at Kempton Avenue, UB5 4HF.
