What’s going on at Bristol Aquarium this October Half Term?

Looking for things to do in Bristol at Halloween and October Half Term? As ever, we’ve got you covered at Bristol Aquarium, with two spooktacular, fun-packed events for all the family – as well as our usual selection of amazing displays and daily talks – taking place over the school holidays.

The Creepiest Creatures you’ve ever seen!

As part of our A’scare’ium event this October half term at Bristol (running from Saturday 26 October to Sunday 3 November), you’ll get the chance to encounter some of the scariest, creepiest creatures around, including spider crabs, piranhas and eels. To celebrate, we’ve rounded up five of our favourite creepy creatures in this blog.

Sea-Creature Sculpture Competition

Feeling creative? We’re putting it to the test this International Recycling Day! To help raise awareness of the troubling amount of waste that ends up in our oceans and endangers our creatures, we need your help to get stuck into an arts-and-crafts competition.
