Things got spooky this Halloween as Cause UK worked with one of Yorkshire’s leading family attractions, Stockeld Park.

Home to one of Europe’s scariest attractions, the team created a ‘Brexit Room’ in its Haunted House to capture what the nation feels – no matter what side of the fence you fall – about the ‘nightmarish purgatory’ of Brexit.
The story captured the imagination of ITV Calendar, who filmed a live broadcast from the Haunted House, interviewing Estate Manager George Grant and Natalie Sykes from the Institute of Directors on the rolling election news.
As part of our media activity, we did a photo shoot with zombies, witches, and in a field featuring thousands of pumpkins. As the photos by press photographer Gerard Binks show, it wasn’t for the faint hearted!
The Pumpkin photo was a Yorkshire Post and Harrogate Advertiser picture of the week, and the story went far and wide regionally in the Telegraph and Argus, Yorkshire Life, Stray FM and Northern Echo.
Stockeld Park’s Fright Night also featured in a story that ran across the UK, including the Coventry Telegraph, Plymouth Herald, Nottingham Evening Post and Manchester Evening News.
Stories on their Christmas events have already been featured in The Telegraph as one of 2019 Best Family Events.
Regionally, Cause UK has set up a feature on the estate as Yorkshire’s biggest Christmas tree grower in Yorkshire Living magazine, and we are working with the Press Association to film drone footage of its Christmas tree plantation.
