Something wicked this way comes to The Forum Shopping Centre

Sittingbourne shoppers are in for a ‘frighteningly’ good treat this October half term as The Forum Shopping Centre is set to host a haunting extravaganza.

Youngsters can search the centre for ghostly minibus posters hidden in shop windows and, once all posters have been spotted, collect a sweet treat from ArrivaClick’s dedicated stand within the centre.

The Halloween half term fun continues or Saturday 28th October as the centre will be hosting a free creepy crawly roadshow. Between 11am and 4pm shoppers can get up close with a number of critters including giant spiders, snakes and snails – perfect to help get children into the spooky spirit just in time for Halloween.  

Furthermore, the centre’s annual Safe Trick or Treating event will be taking place throughout the day where ‘little monsters’ are able to hunt around the centre and find spooky themed posters in shop windows in return for free sweets.

The Forum will be hosting a fancy dress competition on Saturday 28th October which invites the town’s youngsters to dress up in their scariest outfits for the chance to win a selection of Halloween themed treats. Not to forget the grown-ups - a free adult’s face painter will be on hand from 2pm until 4pm to help transform shoppers into the devilish character of their choice – perfect to finish of Halloween party outfits.

Finally, throughout the Halloween period from Saturday 21st October until Saturday 28th October, the centre will also be inviting its Facebook followers to snap a photo of themselves by The Forum’s spooky backdrop and upload it to www.facebook.com/TheForumCentre to be in with a chance of receiving a special £20 voucher courtesy of Peacocks.
