Halloween in Leatherhead - 31st October from 2pm until 5pm
Leatherhead town centre will be awash with all things that go bump in the night on Saturday 31st October when the town will once again be hosting an afternoon of Halloween fun for all the family from 2pm to 5pm.
For those brave enough there will be an opportunity to get up close with some seriously creepy crawlies, whilst those keen to show off their frightful dress sense will battle it out to win one of three prizes up for grabs in a fancy dress competition at the Swan Centre from 4pm. There will be a prize for the best home-made outfit, so get your thinking caps on and start getting creative during half term. The competition is open to all so expect a few ‘mummies’ – and daddies – too!
Those up for a challenge can take part in the delightfully disgusting ‘Yucky Dip’ game or see if they have what it takes to be a grave digger. Meanwhile, youngsters can enter the ‘Pumpkin Pursuit’ competition, taking place in the town’s shops.
New for this year we have a pumpkin carving competition. Bring your carved pumpkins along to the event to be judged and you could win a prize. So get thinking and carving (under supervision from an adult) during half term and bring your finished jack-o-lanterns along on the 31st.
The Surrey Society of Model Engineers will offer rides on their miniature steam train throughout the day. This costs 50p per ride.
You may be excused for thinking that Leatherhead has been invaded from outer space with aliens lurking in giant tubes! Watch out for Vooboo, scary skeletons that will tower above you and the friendly Mr Pumpkin Head.
Why not come along and have a ‘spooktacular’ time! We look forward to scaring you….I mean seeing you!
Free parking from 3pm in all town centre car parks.
There will be a small charge for some of the competitions and games.
The barrier to the High Street will remain closed until 6pm to allow for greater safety of residents and visitors during the event.
