Sunny van der Pas - The new Witch of Wookey

Halloween is a busy time of year for witches, especially if you are making magic at the legendary Wookey Hole Caves. Sunny van der Pas will be flying in on her broomstick for some of the spooktacular events planned over the school holiday period.
Having moved to the UK when she was 15, Sunny went on to study musical theatre at the Bristol Academy of Performing Arts before touring the UK with childrens theatre companies.
It was fantastic but a lot of living out of suitcases, so I thought it was time to be settled, says Sunny, who loves her new role.
Children are so excited to see me, although some of them are suddenly petrified when they get up close. But Im a very friendly witch really!
They often ask me to do spells some want to be turned into a frog. And if they tell me Im not a real witch I always say: Yes I am. Youre a real boy arent you?
For details of Ghost Tours and other Halloween entertainment at Wookey Hole this month, visit or call 01749 672243.
