Skate and play venue CurveMotion, in Bury St Edmunds, is teaming up with local businesses; Auntie Pam’s Sweet Shop and Bring Out Your Dead Productions to offer a unique interactive experience for families this Hallowe’en.
CurveMotion are looking to give families the opportunity to get dressed up and come and enjoy all the fun and excitement of Hallowe’en with a host of different activities including roller skating, soft play and crafts sponsored by Auntie Pam’s Sweet Shop.
The main feature of the event will be the “Trick or Treat Trail”, which has been curated in partnership with local theatre company, Bring Out Your Dead Productions, and author of “There’s a Head in My Bed”; Hatty Ashton.
“We’ll be telling the spooky ghost stories of St Edmund and Forkbeard the Viking to all those who participate in the trail,” said Hatty. “Which is a fun way to introduce children to their local history.”
The trail will offer participants the opportunity to meet costume characters and solve clues as they explore the playframe, before visiting the Witch’s Lair where they will be told their spooky story and receive their treat for completing the trail.
“We’re thrilled to be working with two fantastic local businesses in Auntie Pam’s Sweet Shop and Bring Out Your Dead Productions,” said a CurveMotion spokesperson. “Their respective popularity among the local community and the fact that Bring Out Your Dead are keen to utilise elements of Bury St Edmunds’ history as part of the story telling will help to make this a truly unique event.”
The event will run on Wednesday, October 31, from 3.30pm to 8pm, with online bookable slots for the ‘Trick or Treat Trail’ running every 20 minutes.
