A DAY of free family fun is coming to Market Place in Bolton this Halloween.

The event is running from 11am-4pm on Saturday 26 and will see a range of activities for youngsters.

A ‘Beasty Bootique’ will help transform the young ones, with the assistance the centre’s face painters.

Once complete, the terrifying tykes can grab a trail sheet and go hunting for creepy crawly cauldrons inside stores around the centre on.

If the little ones are feeling extra brave, they’ll have the chance to meet and hold some real life creatures, as ‘The Beast Patrol’ will be there for the day. Tarantulas, millipedes and snakes will all be on show.

Children are encouraged to dress to impress as Bolton FM will be hosting a fancy dress competition with prizes up for grabs.

Nikki Wilson-Cook, the Centre Manager, said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming families to Market Place to enjoy all the free fun we have on offer this Halloween and pick up all their spooky essentials from our stores.”
