Half Term Halloween Fun at The Gracechurch Centre

Families are in for a Halloween treat this half term as The Gracechurch Centre announces a host of spook-tacular activities to keep the children entertained.


Kicking off on Saturday 21st October and Sunday 22nd October, the new Virgin Holidays store within House of Fraser, is putting on a Disney-inspired face painting session, complete with cupcake treats, popcorn and Disney goodie bags.

From Monday 23rd October to Sunday 29th October, children can take part in The Gracechurch Centre’s Treat Trail, where they will be challenged to follow the trail from store to store to find sweet-filled cauldrons to top up their treat bags.

Those brave enough to take part in the trail are invited to pick up their treat bags and trail sheets from the Customer Care Desk.

There will be more sweets to find each day so little witches, wizards, mummies and zombies can visit more than once if they dare.

Kids can take a walk on the colourful side by taking part in a colouring session on Friday 27th October, Paperchase will also be making an appearance as they host a series of free Halloween mask-making sessions outside WH Smith.

Paperchase workshops will take place from 11am to 12pm and from 3pm to 4pm on Monday 23rd October, Wednesday 25th October and Friday 27th October.

And that’s not all, on Saturday 28th October there will be some spooky surprises popping up too with special live performances from Sutton Coldfield’s dance group Rhythm Junkiez and Sutton Coldfield Town Hall’s SCART group.

For those interested in joining Rhythm Junkiez, the team will be around all day taking sign-ups.
