Bourne Creatives host ‘spooktacular’ workshops this October half term

Bourne Creatives is delighted to announce its spooktacular week of Halloween workshops, taking place inside The Forum Shopping Centre from Tuesday 27th October until Saturday 31st October. Local families are invited to attend the week and take part in all the ghostly goings on.

The line-up for the half term spooktacular is as follows:

•           Tuesday 27th from 10am until 12pm

Monica Rana, Centre Manager of The Forum Shopping Centre, commented:

“We are thrilled to have Bourne Creatives’ spooky Halloween event happening in the shopping centre and it coincides nicely with our Safe Trick or Treating event on Saturday 31st October. All local families and shoppers are invited to attend any number of the spooky workshops taking place in the week and we can’t wait to see the creations made.”
