Leatherhead town centre will be taken over by creepy crawlies, stilt walking devils and gargoyles on Monday 31 October when the town once again hosts an afternoon of fun and games for your little ones from 3.30pm to 6.00pm.
Be terrorised (only slightly) by Animazing’s real life creepy crawlies, including snakes, spiders and cockroaches. Be wowed by the stilt walking devils that will tower above the crowds and be mesmerised by the Whizzers; strange sprite-like characters that will glide through the streets. Also, look out for the two gargoyles in the town centre.
Are you feeling lucky? Find the key to the locked treasure chest and you could be in for a treat! But be warned, if you’re unlucky you will be in for a trick. Are you brave enough to find the magic stone in amongst the body parts? How about guessing the name of our real tarantula or testing your aim at skull hoopla? If this isn’t enough, enter the Witch Word Competition and you could be in with the chance of winning a £15 gift voucher.
Students of Therfield School will perform Halloween Hits such as the Monster Mash and the Harry Potter theme tune, while local dance group Poptastic will perform Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
A fancy dress competition for all ages will take place at 4.30pm in the Swan Centre, with prizes for the best costume.
Councillor Kathryn Westwood, Portfolio Holder for Partnerships, said: “Halloween in Leatherhead promises to be lots of fun for the whole family. With the music, fun and games there will be a fantastic atmosphere. The event is a great way for us to reach our communities and encourage residents to support local businesses.”
There will be a small charge for some of the competitions and games. For the safety of residents, the barrier to the High Street will remain closed until 6.30pm.
