Get ready for a spooktacular weekend of fun for the family
There will be some spooktacular entertainment in Lowestoft town centre this weekend.
Following the success of last year’s Spooky Saturday, Lowestoft Vision will be holding the event again today, (Saturday, October 28), for all the family to enjoy.
The fun begins at 10am outside the Britten Centre in London Road North as Cantors Theatre School presents a special half an hour Halloween performance, with another show at 12.30pm.
Then from 11am until 11.45am and again from 1.15pm until 2pm, crowds will encounter the Whizzers, sprite-like and cheekily unpredictable wizards on wheels, ready to chase unsuspecting members of the audience off into the distance. Families will also be treated to the Spooky Surprise Stay at the Triangle Market in intervals from 10am until 2pm.
Of course Halloween would not be complete without the traditional trick or treat, so Lowestoft businesses have come together to provide an exciting pumpkin trail within a safe environment. Children under 12 years of age in fancy dress and accompanied by an adult will have the chance to visit over 40 local businesses located along the historic High Street, London Road North, Bevan Street, Station Square and Suffolk Road. These businesses will be displaying a Halloween poster and pumpkin showing they are taking part in the trail.
There is also the chance for adults to take part in the fun weekend with the new Discover Lowestoft ghosts walks, with two walks planned for today from 5pm and another walk on Sunday, October 29, from 6pm. The walks are for adults over 18 and are not recommended for those with heart conditions.
Limited tickets are still available at a cost of £5 from Flint House restaurant in the High Street. The price includes a free hot drink.
A spokesman for Lowestoft Vision said: “The town is a great place to shop with over 40 retailers, independent shops and department stores. Those wanting to refresh their taste buds will be overwhelmed with choice of cafés and restaurants, some who will be decorating with spooky settings.
“And following Halloween, Lowestoft Vision is also busy preparing for the Christmas festivities.”
