Westgate Oxford is the ultimate destination for all the family this October half-term, with a whole host of fun activities for all ages – including a special two-day event in partnership with Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

Other October half-term activities include:

· Indulge in a delicious bite to eat at Ole & Steen or Joe & the Juice

· Adventure awaits in the exciting escape rooms at Escape Hunt

· Enjoy the three nine-hole crazy golf courses at Junkyard Golf Club

· Sit back and relax in front of the big screen at Curzon Cinema

Film fans can get into the Halloween spirit as a replica of the iconic Ecto-1 car pulls into Westgate Oxford to celebrate the launch of Sony Pictures’ highly anticipated Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which can be seen at Westgate from November 18th.

Ahead of the film’s UK release, on October 28th and 29th Westgate Oxford’s visitors can snap a selfie with the Ecto-1 and stand inside a super-sized ‘ghost trap’. Screens will also show snippets of the new movie and Lego™ Ecto-1 models will be on display, with special competitions for a chance to win a private screening of the movie and Ghostbusters-themed goodies via social media.

Brendan Hattam, Centre Director at Westgate Oxford, said: “Film fans of all ages are excited to see the new Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie, so we’re helping to get them in the spirit by welcoming the famous Ecto-1 here at Westgate Oxford. We’re sure the film will be a big hit, so make sure to book your cinema tickets in advance so you don’t miss out.”

Ecto-1 and the ‘ghost trap’ will be at Westgate Oxford on October 28th and 29th and Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be showing at Westgate’s Curzon Cinema from November 18th. For details, visit https://westgateoxford.co.uk/ghostbusters

Keep the kids entertained with an exciting adventure in one of the interactive escape rooms at Escape Hunt. In this nail-biting experience, you have 60 minutes to find and solve a series of clues to escape...no pressure! There are loads of different games to choose from such as Alice in Puzzleland, Doctor Who, or a pirate adventure with Blackbeard.

Escape Hunt is suitable for children aged 8+, who must be accompanied by a guest aged 16+. For bookings and further information, visit https://escapehunt.com/uk/oxford/.

Fancy a spot of (crazy) golf? Enjoy three mashed up 9-hole crazy golf courses at Junkyard Golf Club created from pre-loved and reclaimed random junk. Groups can putt their way through all sort of bizarre holes; think mad slides, a hall of mirrors, UV garage and more! Under 18s are only permitted on Sunday to Friday before 6pm and must have an over 18 present with them.
