Beasty Boo-tique October Half Term Fun

Visit the Beasty Boo-tique this October Half Term from Monday 25th - Sunday 31st, 11am - 4pm, where little shoppers have the opportunity to enjoy a whole host of creepy-crawly fun, including:

  • Face Painting - be transformed into the creepiest of crawlies each day by our resident minibeast face painter.
  • Creepy Crawly Crafternoons - kids can make their very own edible treats and spooky crafts including masks, puppets and decorations. 
  • LIVE Minibeast Meet and Greets - visit our Showtime Sessions where kids can experience real live millipede meeting, tarantula touching, six-legged storytelling and snake slithering. For the bravest of the brave, there'll be an opportunity to hold them, too!
  • Giant butterfly stilt walkers - witness these huge, beautiful creatures roaming The Mall and don't forget to grab a selfie.
  • Great Big Bug Hunt - roam The Mall and look for all the bugs we've hidden in our shop windows. Find them all and you'll get a sweet reward!
