  • Dobbies gets Spooktacular this Halloween!

A limited number of spaces at ever-popular event in Galton

Perfect for a ghoulishly good family day out, Dobbies’ Halloween Spooktacular will get the whole family in the spooky spirit this October. Taking place from Thursday 28 to Sunday 31 October, families in Galton are in for a cackle.

Dobbies’ Spooktacular event is a great way to get the kids trick or treat fix, where they can get stuck into terrifying treats before taking part in games and dancing. Children across Galton can showcase their best Halloween costumes in the fancy dress competition, with prizes up for grabs for the best dressed courtesy of Baker Taylor, leading UK wholesaler of unique and innovative book and stationary ranges.

In addition to the entertainment, Dobbies’ Galton store will be serving up spooktacular meals for children, including penne bolognese with vegetable sticks and chicken nuggets or fish fingers with chips and garden peas. There will also be a variety of gluten free and vegetarian options to choose from.

Adults are also in for a treat, with the option of Dobbies’ ever-popular afternoon tea, which includes a selection of finger sandwiches, mini cakes and baked slices, freshly made plain and fruit scones with jam and clotted cream and the option or a pot of tea or small coffee. If the grown-ups would prefer a lighter option, they can enjoy the cake and hot drink selection instead.

Sarah Murray, Partnership and Events Manager, said: “Our Spooktacular event is extremely popular with families in Galton, and we’re really looking forward to seeing lots of creative costumes in our stores this October. It’s always a fun time to get the family together and Dobbies has something for everyone this spooky season.”

Tickets are flying off the shelves this year, so parents are encouraged to book in early to avoid disappointment. Children tickets are priced at £8.99 and adults can join in on the fun from £6.50.
