SPOOKY HALLOWEEN ACTIVITIES AT LION WALK AND RED LION YARD
For a spooktacular Halloween bring the kids to Lion Walk Shopping Centre and Red Lion Yard, in the heart of Colchester, to take part in FREE spooky, spine chilling, frightening family fun and games. From 30 October to 1 November we have ghostly story telling and supernatural themed craft workshops. A giant pumpkin will also be wandering around the centre on Friday 31 October.
For all three days kids can visit the “Land of Darkness” nestled in Red Lion Yard to listen to hair-raising ghost stories, making even the most courageous shiver. As well as scary stories children visiting Lion Walk and Red Lion Yard during Halloween will get the chance to bring out their witchcraft skills by joining the Halloween make and take craft workshops designing snakes, bats and other Halloween creatures.
Also, between 25 October and 2 November the centre is running a scary selfie Halloween competition, where shoppers can win fantastic prizes from the centre’s retailers. The best entry will get a £50 gift voucher from GAME plus there are more prizes up for grabs. To enter the competition simply take a selfie, the scarier the better, in front of the haunted house Halloween backdrop in Red Lion Yard and post it on the Lion Walk Facebook and/or Twitter page using #LionWalkSpook.
