The East Sheen Halloween Hunt – East Sheen, London
What better way to get into the spooky spirit of Halloween than with a fancy dress treasure hunt around your local shops? Treats are guaranteed and who knows what tricks may be in store? Starting at the Hare & Hounds, children will collect a map which will guide them around some of our lovely East Sheen businesses.
In each, they’ll hunt for a Halloween prop with a letter on it, note the letter and carry on until all letters are collected and they can spell out a sentence! There may even be some treats along the route… Then it’s back to the Hare & Hounds to hand in answers and claim a great goody bag prize! THERE WILL ALSO BE PRIZES FOR THE BEST COSTUMES – FOR ADULTS & KIDS – AND SOME SECRET WITCHES’ BREW, TOO! Entry is available by pre-paid ticket only.
Tickets cost £3.85 per child (inc. booking fee – accompanying adults go free). Children must be accompanied by an adult.
For any age – Saturday the 28th of October – 12 till 3pm
Trick or Treat Trail – Bromley, Kent
From face painting and pumpkin painting to a trick or treat trail and a Mexican Day of the Dead party, there’s something for the whole family in Bromley this Autumn. Starting on 21st October a week-long town centre trick or treat trail will give young half term visitors the chance to hunt the area for spooky painted skulls.
Spotting ten, hidden in the window displays of twenty-five shops, will win them a Halloween treat, with full details and a map available from the customer service desk at The Glades. That’s not all half term has to offer as face painting takes place in The Glades throughout the week on the upper level opposite Cath Kidson and fabulous face painting!
As Halloween approaches a Day of the Dead celebration will come to Market Square, with youngsters invited to book a slot for pumpkin painting, sugar skull face painting or watching professional pumpkin carving during the day before taking spooky selfies. Food and drink will be provided by Benito’s Hat with a selection of tacos, churros, margaritas and Mexican beers on offer throughout the day and night.
The space will transform as darkness sets in, with older visitors invited to a Mexican Day of the Dead celebration where entertainment will include a Mariachi Band, human tables and face painting for grown-ups and much more.

Broadditch Farm – Boo Bungalow – Southfleet, Kent
A quirky and fun filled bungalow for children and scaredy cats alike, a colourful introduction to Halloween for younger children.
This daytime attraction at Broadwitch Hauntfest is aimed at their younger visitors but it is difficult to be age specific as what one child finds scary, another will not. Daytime attractions are meant as a fun and colourful introduction to Halloween with no actors present to scare with the exception of a couple of actors on the Twilight Tours. Nighttime attractions are for adults over the age of 16 with actors present in all Haunt.
For Children aged 1 to 16 years – 21st October to 31st October – 10am – 6pm
