#Ad – Family Fright Fest Review

Ad- We were given complimentary entry but did spend once inside on food, fairground attractions, pumpkins, and a photo keyring.


On Saturday the girls were lucky enough to get to go and experience the Family Fright Festival at Lintz Hall Farm. The event is brought to you in partnership with Metro Radio and Gateshead College. With a whole host of activities and attractions to keep the family entertained. The event is aimed at children of 1-12 years of age.

The girls had lots of fun carving a pumpkin each, as well as enjoying the show on the main stage. The girls are not keen on being scared so they gave the mazes a miss just in case.  I’m wishing they gave them a go as it’s aimed for kids so nothing too scary, maybe next time they can be talked round.


Lots of places to stop and get some great photos. Crafty fun as you make your way around to get involved in with some spooky fun. The staff are dressed up and fancy dress is encouraged for visitors. Willow loves dressing up so went as a witch but with her clothes on underneath as it was a wet miserable day sadly. A fun family vibe throughout the visit and a great way to celebrate Halloween with plenty of variety within one venue.

Opening times 

11am – 4.30pm

Parking is a bit of downside im afraid as the field is steep and with the rain, it doesn’t make for an easy walk something to keep in mind with footwear when visiting.

The overall verdict is that it’s a good, value for money event, but be prepared to be asked to spend more from your children. Those sideshow stalls to win teddys can soon rack up the £££s. I would personally try to budget into your day to spend on the fairground rides, as at £6 for unlimited rides it is a great price and will keep the kids happy especially if they can keep going on their favorite rides. Food stalls are typically food market prices, the girls loaded fries where £5 each.  A really good variety of free activities and entertainment included and a family-friendly, fun place to enjoy Halloween!
