IT is the creepiest night of the year, when the line between the living and the dead is said to be at its weakest.
But All Hallows Eve, or Halloween as it is more commonly known, is also one of the most exciting, with spooktacular events and activities going on across the county.
Whether you want a fancy dressed fest for the whole family, or are after a genuine scare, there is plenty to choose from.
For the first time ever, Chatsworth will invite visitors into the house for a tour that is not for the faint hearted, with events for youngsters going on all week in the farmyard and the gardens.
And Bolsover Castle becomes the creepy backdrop for a host of Halloween events, from twilight tours to eerie illuminations.
If you prefer to get into the Halloween spirit whilst supporting a good cause, Chesterfield RSPCA is hosting a special Black Cat Day, where you can see all the felines up for adoption.
