Families invited to get spooky with the 'Scare-lings' event at Swindon Dobbies

Dobbies' Swindon store will be holding a Halloween-themed 'Scare-lings' event for little ones to enjoy this October.

Parents and guardians are invited to bring their little ones along to Little Scare-lings at Dobbies’ Swindon store this Halloween.

Children will be given the opportunity to become 'certified scarers' and enjoy an afternoon of 'spine-chilling' family-friendly activities.

Taking place in Swindon between 27 – 30 October, Little Scare-lings is described as 'a spooktacular' way to get ready for the Halloween festivities. Kids up to age 10 are encouraged to come dressed in their most terrifying costume where their 'scare-factor' will be put to the test.

A spokesperson from Dobbies Swindon said: "Children will have the chance to perfect their scare tactics, showcase their monster strut in a group parade, and take part in making their very own monster plant pot to take home. Dobbies will award each child with their very own scare certificate at the end of the session."

In addition to the activities, there will be the chance to enjoy some edible treats, with fish fingers and tomato pasta on the menu, with gluten free and vegetarian options also available. Children will also receive a Halloween cupcake.

Adults can enjoy Dobbies’ ever-popular Afternoon Tea, with a selection of finger sandwiches, mini cakes and baked slices, plus freshly-made plain and fruit scones with jam and clotted cream.

They will also have the option of a pot of tea or small coffee. For those looking for a sweet treat, there’s the option of a cake and drink ticket. 

Sarah Murray, Partnership and Events Manager at Dobbies, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming families across Swindon to our Halloween event. Taking inspiration from our popular Little Seedlings programme, Little Scare-lings gives children the chance to join in some fantastically-spooky fun.”

Tickets for Little Scare-lings are available now at dobbies.com, and booking is encouraged to avoid disappointment.

Activities are aimed at children aged 3 -10, but under 3-year-olds can participate with adult supervision.

Children’s tickets are priced at £8.99, and adults can join in from £6.99.
