Half term fun in Horsham town centre next week

Horsham District Council and its partners have organised a half term in Horsham’s town centre that’s brimming with fun activities, running from Saturday 21 October until Saturday 28 October.
For younger children, the Halloween Trick or Treat Trail will run all week and will involve 26 town businesses offering treats or tricks, with a chance to win cash prizes from Horsham Rotary. Participants will be required to pick up all of the clues as they discover their locations.

A Halloween party with a fancy dress competition, in and around the Carfax local produce market, will take place on Saturday 28 October, starting around 10am.

In aid of BBC Children in Need, Pudsey Bear will be hosting a Pudsey and Pals Mascot Party on the Carfax bandstand, from 10am on Thursday 26 October. The event, organised by Horsham Rotary Club and partners, will involve singing, dancing and lots of fantastic activities.

Horsham’s Carfax will play host, for the second year running, to the Sussex Food and Drink Awards Street Food Finals on Sunday 22 October. Organisers are inviting all to “Come along and taste the food on offer then cast your vote for the ten best street food providers in Sussex.” Entertainment will also be provided.

For fashion lovers, young and the young at heart, there will be an amazing collection of designer shoes at Horsham Museum, the Irregular Choice Exhibition, open every day except Sundays.

Cabinet Member for the Local Economy, Cllr Gordon Lindsay, commented: “Horsham will be a fun place to be this October half term holiday with the return of lots of firm favourites, such as the Trick or Treat Trail and the BBC Children in Need Mascot Party for younger children and the new addition of the Street Food Finals. Come along and join in the fun.”
