From a Pumpkin Pageant with a chance to win £250, to a witches cauldron lucky dip - there will be plenty on offer at the arc shopping centre between 3pm - 6.30pm.

Craft stations will be available for children to try their hand at something creative, including making spooky spiders, witches owls and magic wands.

Children will also be able to take part in a Halloween themed treasure trail around the arc.

Abbie Panks, arc centre manager said: "All activities are free to take part in, but we recommend booking a slot for Magic Wands in advance as we are expecting this to be a popular choice.
