Things get spooky in Horsham this Halloween

Horsham’s Carfax will host the increasingly popular Children In Need Halloween Party on October 30, from 10.00 am to 4.00pm providing a variety of fantastic free and paid for entertainment for younger children brought together by Horsham District Council, the Rotary Club of Horsham and local business sponsors.

Highlights planned include a children’s Halloween activity zone sponsored by Gascoigne-Pees, DoStuff Bus pumpkin carving workshops sponsored by Santander, bandstand storytelling with Horsham Library and Daisy White’s Booktique, street entertainments, a pumpkin carving competition with prizes provided by The Capitol, Toy Barnhaus, Sainsbury’s, Subway and ShakeAway, a Halloween themed Thursday market, plus the Rotary Club of Horsham organised ‘Trick or Treat’ trails around the town and a Halloween fancy dress competition.

Horsham’s Non-Stop Party Shop will be dressing the bandstand in ‘Spooky Style’ with items available in-store. They are also sponsoring the fancy dress competition and you can pick up your fancy dress competition entry form now from Non-Stop Party Shop in the Carfax/Middle Street or join in outside Wilkinsons on the day.

Pudsey Bear will also be visiting Horsham town centre with Horsham Rotary and will be seen visiting many of the sponsoring businesses.

The Rotary Horsham Trick or Treat Trail will be in full swing over every day of the half-term holiday with forms available to download online from and all participating businesses.

Although fancy dress is not compulsory, it will be fun to see just how many original ways visitors to the town can find to theme their dress to fit in with the event on the day.
