Halloween Is A Scream At The Horsefair!!

Wisbech Town Centre’s Spooktacular Halloween Event will take place on Saturday 28th October.

From 3pm to 5pm, over 60 town centre businesses in the Horsefair Shopping Centre, on High Street, Hill Street, Market Street and Union Street will be taking part in a Trick or Treat event. Participating businesses will display a poster of the “Wisbech Witch” in their window, indicating that children are welcome to visit and collect a free treat!

There will be a vast array of other scary Halloween themed activities to take part in – all for free. These include balloon modelling and a fairground ride. There will also be a Halloween Craft and Gift fair taking place in the Horsefair throughout the day.

Always a highlight at the event is the fancy dress competition. Visitors of all ages are encouraged to arrive in their best fancy dress costume, ready to win a prize. The Mayor of Wisbech will be choosing the winner at 4pm on the Market Place – there’s even a prize especially for the best dressed adult!

The event will also mark the return of Kevin Smith, who has resumed his position as Centre Manager at the Horsefair. Kevin commented: “The Halloween event is always incredibly popular, it’s great that the whole town centre gets involved. People go to amazing efforts with their fancy dress each year so I can’t wait to see this year’s entries!”

Other events will be taking place throughout the town as part of the Wisbech Town Council & Friends’ Tremble Trail. The Market Place will be home to the House of Shadows and Madam Woo’s fortune telling, alongside spooky dance performances from the Nine Lives Theatre Group. The Rose & Crown Hotel is also hosting the Samhain Witches’ Festival with many magical, mystical witchy wares to browse and craft stalls to visit from 11am until 4pm.
