Wicked Week of Frightfully Free Fun at The Mall

Shoppers at The Mall Blackburn can be sure of a ghoulishly good time this Halloween half term!

A giant wizard, mysterious magicians, a Heebie Jeebie puppet show, creepy crafts, spooky story-telling and fang-tastic face painting are all being thrown into the cauldron to cast the perfect spell!

All the events will take place in Victoria Court and the scary schedule includes:


Monday 30th October – 11am until 4pm

Heebie Jeebie Puppet Show

Follow the make believe hero into the Haunted Castle as he searches for his lost cat.  Fun for all the family, this spooky Halloween tale, is sure to give everyone the Heebie Jeebies! Plus, parents can bring their children in their trick or treat fancy dress between 11am and 4pm and the artist will paint their faces to match.

Standing nearly nine feet tall, Randalf The Wizard will be introducing shoppers to his “baby dragon” who isn’t quite trained yet and still needs a name.
