Half Term Halloween Fun at the Potteries Centre with Indoor Pumpkin Patch

Visitors to the Potteries Centre this half term are in for a scream of a time thanks to a selection of fun Halloween activities across the centre.

The week kicks off with the launch of The Potteries Pumpkin Patch which will be located outside River Island on the middle mall from the 25th to 30th October. Featuring a selection of real pumpkins along with a haystack peep through that visitors can put their heads through, the indoor patch is set to be the perfect spot for spooky selfie opps for the whole family.

Further Halloween festivities come in the form of free family face painting with Newcastle under Lyme college students on 30th October and a big Pumpkin giveaway which will give families the chance to get their hands on a free pumpkin and carving kit.

This year also sees the return of the City Centre BID Trick or Treat event on 31st October. To celebrate, families can sign up to The Potteries Centre Family Rewards Club on the day between 11am and 4pm and collect a free trick or treat bucket, with bags of treats available from participating stores in the centre before 4.30pm and throughout the city centre after 4.30pm.

Commenting on the upcoming Halloween festivities, Amy Whittaker, general manager for The Potteries Centre said:

“We’re always looking for great ways to treat shoppers to something extra special, and Halloween is the perfect opportunity to do just that. This year, we wanted to do something a little different, so we’ve tried to capture all the excitement of a trip to the pumpkin patch but right here in the centre. There’ll be lots of pumpkins, a fantastic selfie opportunity and plenty of fun for the whole family.

“It’s also great to be joining in with the city’s Trick or Treat event again this year. It’s always a really popular event, with little ones able to get their hands on lots of treats from across the centre and city centre. We welcome all families to feel free to don their best costumes and join us for what’s set to be a fantastic Halloween half term.”
