Freaky Fun Friday at Merchistoun Hall – as Halloween draws near!
There could be no better a backdrop than Merchistoun Hall and its grounds at night for a Halloween Celebration!
And that’s just what it will be on Friday October 27th as it opens its doors at 6pm (if you dare enter) – for a family & children Halloween Extravaganza.
The halls team of volunteers are working hard to add the finishing touches to this evening that will include:
- Arts & Crafts,
- Games and prizes
- Prizes for the best dressed children & adults!
- Refreshments with a witches punch, pumpkin soup, hot dogs (with plenty of red sauce!) …and Halloween decorated cakes on the menu
- And an organised trick or treat
A professional photographer will also be there to capture guests in their finest fancy dress to capture the fun (optional extra)
Brendan Charles – event organiser – said ‘We have had just the greatest fun pulling this event together! – between us we have pooled our ideas, offers of help and support and we wanted to make this event special for Horndean families’
One of the craft activities will be decorating the trick or treat bags that the children will take with them on their organised walk around the immediate neighbourhood.
The team are now busy making and collecting decorations to adorn the hall and look forward to seeing families on the evening itself.
‘We are so pleased to be working again with the wonderful team that made our Summer Fayre the huge success it was earlier this year’ – said Brendan
