“We’re incredibly excited to partner with English Heritage for the first time and for families to enjoy our spooky Beano Halloween Quests up and down the country this half-term,” says Vanessa Andreis, franchise planning and partnerships director, Beano. “Beano’s been entertaining kids for more than 80 years so these iconic English Heritage sites are the perfect place for us to cause mischief and mayhem this Halloween.”
The first English Heritage/Beano Halloween Quest, running Oct. 22-30, has been timed to coincide with Halloween and the half-term holidays. English Heritage, the organization that cares for more than 400 historic monuments, buildings and sites, will host the Halloween Quest at 22 of its sites including Stonehenge, Dover Castle, Audley End House and Gardens and Kenilworth Castle.
“We’re very excited to be working with Beano for the first time ever,” says Lorna Sharps, senior marketing manager (acquisition and partnerships), English Heritage. “Halloween is full of mischief and who is more mischievous than Dennis and his friends? We can’t wait for families to enjoy the trail that we have created for them in partnership with Beano.”
Visitors this half-term can enjoy a day out inspired by comic characters including Dennis, Gnasher and Minnie the Minx. Beano merchandise will be sold in visitors’ shops at Quest site locations.
“The work of English Heritage is all about bringing history to life, and this marvelous event is perfectly designed to do just that for young visitors to some of the country’s most historical sites,” says Melissa Satterly, brand manager, Rocket Licensing. “We’re delighted to be bringing Dennis, Gnasher and friends together with the inspirational work of English Heritage in what promises to be a fun and engaging half-term treat.”
