Visitors to the Stratford Centre are in for a spooky surprise this weekend.

The shopping centre is inviting families to celebrate Halloween with them, with a day full of treats – and tricks - for shoppers at its Hallow-scream day.

On Sunday (October 29), families with children of all ages are invited to participate in slime making and “potion brewing” workshops.

A spokesperson for the Stratford Centre said: “Children are invited to unleash their inner scientist and get hands-on with their slime making and potion brewing workshop.

“Learn the secrets behind crafting the perfect slime and mixing magical potions with trained slime specialists!”

Families can expect to be shocked by visits from a wicked witch and can see their children transform into their favourite Halloween characters with free face painting.

The shopping centre will host interactive trails with surprises and scavenger hunts as families wander through the centre.

Makenna, Stratford Centre’s mascot, will also be making an appearance on Sunday offering families exclusive invites to all events, a certificate and sticker, and the option to sign up to the kid’s club.

The events will run from 10am till 4pm – do you dare go?
