EPIC Museum announces range of virtual events for Halloween

The EPIC Museum in Dublin have announced a number of online events to celebrate Halloween this year.

EPIC Museum said it is the place for families to virtually celebrate Halloween this midterm break with their range of exciting, entertaining and educational online events.

For those looking to ‘Trick or Treat’ and celebrate Halloween with children safely this year, while also learning about Ireland’s Samhain traditions, EPIC has it all.

Some of the events that EPIC Museum has in store this Halloween include:

‘Trick or Treat: Halloween Around the World’ Online Workshop, Oct 24th, 25th, 29th & 30th

The online workshop brings historical trivia and spooky modern day practices together, to create a one-of-a-kind Halloween experience.

The workshop will look at the evolution of Halloween around the world – from the ancient traditions of Samhain, to traditions today.

Children are being encouraged to dress up in their Halloween costumes and bring these traditions to life in their home through craft and drawing activities.

With ghastly ghouls, wicked witches and all of Halloween’s horrible creatures, look inside the eerie vaults of EPIC. They say tickets from €7.50 are available to purchase online.

Samhain - Ireland’s Family Halloween Festival Online, Oct 26th

With spooky storytelling, pimpin’ pumpkins, transforming turnips, and interactive spell-casting sessions, families can immerse themselves in an Irish Halloween experience with Samhain this midterm break.

On October 26th, Ireland’s Family Halloween Festival is going online with creative workshops, traditional Halloween games and hijinks, and a whole host of characters from the Banshee to the Pooka.

Workshops will run from 12-4pm, and will be delivered via Zoom and streamed via Facebook Live, completely free of charge, with limited tickets available for the interactive portion via Eventbrite.

‘Trick or Treat: If You Dare!’, Oct 31st

This Halloween, on October 31st, EPIC’s ‘Trick or Treat: If You Dare’ event blends live action and historical trivia together.

Filled with fortune tellers, turnip designing and wicked witch spell casting, children are invited to dress up in their spookiest Halloween costumes and brave the fang-tastic challenges and activities that await them inside the museum walls.
