Last night the London Eye hosted a special Halloween ‘Witch Academy’ capsule, with guests including Sara Cox, Kate Ford, Tina Hobley, Amanda Lamb and families.

The children were invited to join the High Witch Priscilla in her quest to thwart the ghoulish Grimly Grim, voiced by family favourite Harry Enfield – the grisly ghoul – who struck again, this time stealing the Crown Jewels!

The Witch Academy is in its second year and includes storytelling, dressing up, fun games and dancing, all whilst taking in the spectacular views of London.

Harry Enfield (Grimly Grim) said: “I am the voice of the ghoulish Grimly Grim this Halloween for the Witch Academy at the EDF Energy London Eye. Halloween is a really fun time and I think it’s important for children to be able to let their imaginations run loose.

“They should be encouraged to go into a world of make-believe for a while and create their own stories and voices. Halloween is the one time of the year the whole family can dress up for a bit of friendly frightening.”
