October in Worcester

October is beginning to look like a very busy month for me. I started with going to Grand Opening of Worcester Wares in the DCU Center. Then we went to Cinema 320 at Clark to see Forbidden Films which was very good.  We’re hoping to get to some of the others.

This year, I got tickets to Cirque du Noir. This is the 8th year they’ve been holding this party / silent auction but will be my first time going. It looks like a beautiful event and I’m pretty excited about it.  I have to figure out what I’m going to wear!

I’m also looking forward to our annual visit to the Rock and Shock Horror convention. George Romero is supposed to be here this year so that’s interesting. Hopefully, we’ll be able to meet him. Even if we don’t, it’s a great time. We always meet interesting people and get a chance to catch up with others.

Factory of Terror has been open since September. We went last year and it was a lot of fun but might not be the best haunted attraction for those who are easily frightened or small children. We’ll be going again this year. *tip* Getting tickets online is a good idea.

Bancroft Tower is open for the public to go inside and I’d like to get over there and have a look. It’s always closed up so this is a rare opportunity.

Bancroft Tower to be open in October

Have you wondered what it’s like to be inside Bancroft Tower? October 11 and 18 are your chance to see. Park Spirit will be opening the gates.

To be held on October 11th. and 18th. – from 9:30 till 2:30
Take in one of the most amazing views in Worcester from the top of the tower. If you have never been there, come and see a hidden gem which is one of Worcester’s amazing parks! – Please (Share) and help get the word out.
