Bury St Edmunds arc shopping centre to host free Halloween festival




The arc shopping centre in Bury St Edmunds has announced details of its free Halloween festival - which will be held over half term.

The line-up includes; a magic wand workshop, reaction game, witch cauldron, spider seminar and a pumpkin pageant - where the winner will receive gift cards worth £250.

Charter Square, which has already this year been transformed into a beach, will host events from 3-6.30pm on Halloween (Thursday, October 31).

The arc shopping centre will again turn Charter Square into a giant Halloween pumpkin patch. Here are Amelia, six, and Annabelle, three, taking part last year. Picture by Mecha Morton.

Abbie Panks, centre manager, said: “We are looking forward to celebrating autumn and Halloween with our customers at this action-packed event."

For the pumpkin pageant, individuals are invited to bring along a customised fruit, or Jack-o'-lantern, where a panel will judge them.

The top three judged creations will win a prize.
