Derbion is inviting little monsters to enjoy a whole host of fang-tastic activities this October half term, including the return of its much-loved Trick or Treat event.
On Monday 30th and Tuesday 31st October, between 10am – 4pm, the centre’s Trick or Treat event will return, inviting little shoppers to pick up a Halloween-themed bag from the spooky team on Level 1 outside Boots and collect sweet treats from any stores displaying a matching bag in the window. Over 10 stores are set to take part in the trail, with devilish delights available on a first-come-first-served basis.
Plus, to ensure little monsters look the part for the Trick or Treat event, Derbion will also host a free fiendish face painting station where children can get undergo a terrifying transformation.
What’s more, small shoppers can also head to meet the centre’s very own balloon artist who will be creating spine-chilling balloon creations just for little monsters this half term, and Count Drac’s DJ Trike will be playing some terrifying tunes for visitors.
Alongside Derbion’s Halloween activity, the centre’s charity of the year, Children First Derby, will be hosting fun activities including pumpkin crafts and temporary tattoos. All of the centre and charity’s activities are free for everyone to enjoy, however, donations towards Children First Derby are welcome.
Elsewhere in the centre, families can enjoy fun-filled days out throughout October half term with Derbion’s varied leisure offering, including Hollywood Bowl’s fang-tastic Halloween package featuring two games of bowling, one drink and nachos, plus Paradise Island Adventure Golf.
What’s more, visitors can head to Showcase Cinema de Lux to catch highly anticipated releases including PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie and Trolls Band Together. Derbion is also home to a wide selection of delicious restaurants and eateries, including TGI Fridays, Wagamama, Nando’s and Pizza Express, so there’s something for everybody to enjoy.
Beth McDonald, Managing Director of Derbion, said: “We’re looking forward to putting smiles on the faces of hundreds of little monsters this half term with our frighteningly-fun, free Halloween activities and for the return of our Trick or Treat events, which promises to be ghoulishly good fun!”
