The Forum Shopping Centre kicked off its ‘frighteningly’ good half term fun on Saturday with the first of a two-weekend Halloween extravaganza.
ArrivaClick's Spooky Scavenger Hunt where children hunted for ghostly minibus posters hidden in shop windows and, in return for a sweet treat proved very popular with shoppers and the ‘witch’s broom toss’ a ghoulish obstacle course also proved equally good fun.

The Halloween half term fun continues or Saturday 28th October as the centre will be hosting a free creepy crawly roadshow. Between 11 am and 4 pm 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.
