Enjoy some Halloween fun in Queens Square this Saturday (26 October).

Crawley Borough Council is hosting a free afternoon of spooky fun from 12 noon until 4pm, with face painting, workshops and activities.

Visitors can also enjoy spooky stories performed by This is My Theatre and Halloween themed musical entertainment from Dennis Teeth, who will be playing the musical saw and Marika Rauscher who will be leading an interactive a sing-a-long on the ukulele.

I am delighted the council has organised another afternoon of free, fun, family events for Crawley residents and visitors. I urge everyone to enjoy the Halloween celebrations and create lasting memories with your families.

Our free events are a great way to encourage, residents and visitors to come together in the town centre and have some fun and build community spirit. I hope everyone has a spooktacular time this Saturday.
