THERE was a Halloween theme at Fort Nelson as hundreds of children crammed into the site during half-term.

More than 500 children visited to take part in Halloween activities including balloon modelling, spooky face painting, puppets, pumpkin trails and craft activities.

There was a story-telling session which took place in the underground tunnels at the Victorian fort near Fareham.

A Royal Armouries spokeswoman said: ‘There were popular activities in a historic setting.

‘Hopefully they picked up a bit of history along the way.

‘The children had a marvellous time.

‘Five-hundred people is a good figure to have turned up on a weekday so we are pleased.’
