Join us for a spooky event like no other! You'll hear ghost stories from Rae McGhee about Midlothian's dark past as you walk around the outside of the haunted Lady Victoria Colliery. Afterwards, wee ones will make their own cat masks and go on a rat spotter trail inspired by one of the stories they will hear. Prizes will be given out at the end!

A refreshment will be provided. This event will take place completely outside – please come prepared for the Scottish weather and wear suitable footwear such as trainers or boots. Tickets are free but limited – if you have booked tickets but cannot attend please let the event organiser know.
