Free, fun-filled fright fest kicks off at The Mall

The half-term holidays got off to a spooktacular start at The Mall Blackburn!

From yesterday (Monday 22nd October) until Sunday 28th October the shopping centre’s Victoria Court has been transformed into a free, fun-filled fright fest.

Ghosts, ghouls, witches and wizards will provide hours of entertainment with spine-tingling stories, action-packed activities and much more.

Monday saw youngsters from across the county join the ghost busters to rid the world of evil spirits!

They went on a scientific quest to discover how ghosts can exist, where to find them and how to defeat them once and for all! They will return on Friday to fight more demons!

Children are invited to attend the School of Villains on Tuesday, where they will get tips and learn tricks from baddies including the wicked witch, Count Dracula, a wizened wizard and many more.

Witches and wizards are the order of the day on Wednesday and Saturday and little ones are invited to join Harry and his Wacky Professor on an adventure to defeat the dark lord, which incudes brilliant broomstick training and spell casting classes.

A pumpkin festival will take place on Thursday and Sunday as Professor Pumpernickel and his apprentice invite green fingered children to help them create the biggest pumpkin in the whole wide world!

Laura Diffey, Marketing Manager at The Mall Blackburn, said: “Our bumper half-term Halloween activities got off to great start, with lots of children having a great time with our ghost busters!

“With so many different activities taking place there really will be something for everyone to enjoy, with amazingly realistic characters delivering great performances all day long!

“With Christmas just around the corner we understand that parents need to find cost effective ways to keep the kids entertained in the school holidays, so all our activities are totally free of charge.”

All the activities will take place in Victoria Court, next to The Mall’s new soft play area, from 11.00am until 4.00pm. For more information please click here.
