Halloween spooktacular in King’s Lynn

Halloween fun in King's LynnFamilies are being invited to descend to the heart of King’s Lynn on Friday 31 October for a Halloween spooktacular.

The Vancouver Quarter is again teaming up with the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk to celebrate Halloween with a special trail around the town centre.

Between 3pm and 5.30pm, children and their parents will need to report to the Vancouver Quarter’s Halloween HQ on Baxter’s Plain, opposite Argos and Costa Coffee, to collect their trail map before making their way around the town centre searching for code words.

Those who collect all the words to our special Halloween poem will be rewarded with a goodie bag from the Vancouver Quarter and the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk.

Abbie Panks, Vancouver Quarter centre manager, said: “This is one of the highlights of the year for the centre and we once again look forward to welcoming hundreds of children to this year’s event.

“This free event gets bigger every year and it’s always lovely for us to see so many children dressed up for the occasion and helping to transform King’s Lynn town centre for Halloween.

“More stores than ever before are getting involved this year and many are planning additional Halloween activities to help create a wonderful atmosphere.”

Children are being encouraged to don their spookiest fancy dress outfit for the event and for those wishing to undergo the complete transformation, a face painter will be in the Vancouver Quarter from 11am until 3pm.

Cllr David Pope, cabinet member for public space, added: “We’re pleased to be supporting this free fun event which helps families to enjoy the town centre.”
