Metro Bank will be holding its annual Halloween family day on Sunday 27 October, where kids will be able to decorate a pumpkin ahead of Halloween.

From 12:00 until 16:00, all the family are invited to tMetro Bank, Regent Street, to join in the fun. The Bank will be giving away free ‘spook-tacular’ treats and kids can meet Metro Man, the bank’s mascot complete in his Halloween costume.

Ian Walters, Managing Director of Retail and Business Banking at Metro Bank says: “Kids have decorated more than 40,000 pumpkins in their local Metro Bank store since the Bank launched its annual Halloween family day in 2012 and this year, yet again, we’re inviting everyone to get their creative hats on, and pop in-store for a fun-filled day.

"Metro Bank is about more than just banking – it’s about being there for the communities we serve and this is just one of the ways we can give something back.”

The Bank will also be holding a kids’ Halloween photo competition where one lucky winner will receive a bumper pack full of Metro Bank goodies. To enter, parents or guardians should head to Twitter to post a photo of their child alongside their decorated pumpkin with the hashtag #MBSpookySnaps between Sunday 27 October to Friday 1 November.
