Join us for awesome Halloween antics!

11am – 4pm, Saturday 26th October

We’re celebrating Halloween with some beastly fun at The Beasty Bootique.

Join us at The Imagination Station opposite Tiger for terrifying transformations with our fearsome face painters, who will make you over into your creepy crawly of choice.

Then grab a trail sheet and head out on our terrific trick or treat trail to spot the creepy crawlies on the cobweb-covered cauldrons in stores around the centre. Once you’ve found all the beastly bugs, head back to the Beasty Boutique for a sweet treat.

You’ll then have the chance to meet some REAL life beasts as we welcome The Beast Patrol for some millipede meeting, tarantula touching and snake slithering plus the chance to hold them if you’re feeling brave!
