Halloween High Jinks

Bonfire Night

2nd November 2016

To ensure everyone had one hell of a Halloween, Crossgates invited people to enjoy some spirited skullduggery, freaky frolics and ghostly goings on Thursday 27th October.

The Event

There was a Gruesome Graveyard located in the centre where visitors could be transformed into marvellous monsters and wicked witches with the help of the centre’s Fiendish Face Painters and Devilish Dress Up Crew. Little devils could then embark on a pumpkin hunt around the shopping centre to win prizes.


A Sinister Selfie Booth took photos of everyone in their freakish finery for participants to take home and keep. These have also been uploaded to the shopping centre’s Facebook page where followers can vote for their favourite to win a spell-binding £50!

The competition closes on Friday 4th November at 5pm. You can view the pictures here.

Excited Shoppers Express Their Joy!

Shoppers took to Crossgates’ Facebook page to express their enjoyment of the day:
