Hubble, bubble, toil and trouble – you’ll be in for a frightening treat, as Halloween draws nearer with a free fangtastic event!
At King Edward Memorial Park in Glamis Road, children and families can celebrate Halloween with an afternoon of ghost themed activities on Monday 31 October from 3.30 to 7pm.
Workshops will include making your own spooky hats, lanterns and recycled Halloween decorations plus face-painting and a bouncy castle.
Arts company, Emergency Exit Arts will transform the park into a haunted haven with eerie creatures and gruesome creations.
Youngsters will be able to play with Freaky Monkeys, listen to Spooky Tales spun by your guide Jack O’ Lantern and add your own ghastly character to the Web of Wonder – a unique and magical art installation in the trees.
Children are also encouraged to come dressed in their scariest outfit to be in with a chance of winning Jack O’ Lantern’s most haunting Halloween costume prize. The competition will take place at 6.30pm
To wrap up the event don’t miss Nightmare in the Park where there will be a dramatic performance featuring weird and wonderful creatures and surprises. The workshops will run from 3.30- 6.30pm with the finale at 6.45pm.
