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.’
