As the home to Roald Dahl’s ‘The Witches’, the film has remained close to our hearts here at The Headland and we will be celebrating with a rather grand and spooky October half term that you and the family won’t want to miss.
The film ‘The Witches’ was written by Roald Dahl and published in 1983, and illustrated by Quentin Blake who famously contributed to many of the authors’ books. The story follows the experiences of a young boy and his Norwegian grandmother in a world where child-hating evil witches secretly exist. In large parts, it was filmed here at The Headland and the cast were in residence for quite some time: Angelica Huston starred as the Grand High Witch, Rowan Atkinson played the hotel manager.
This October we have a full month of spooky fun for you and your family to enjoy:
