Harry Potter and the magical Pumpkin Patch arrives at arc shopping centre...

Following the success of the children’s activities this summer, arc shopping centre is preparing for a fun filled, Halloween inspired day for the kids, with an exciting visit from Harry Potter* and a magical Pumpkin Patch for children to craft their very own wand.

There will be a Halloween inspired event taking place on Monday 23rd October 2017, between 11am – 3pm, at arc shopping centre. It includes an opportunity for kids to design their own wand inside a giant inflatable pumpkin, perfect for Halloween. The children will also have the chance to meet Harry Potter* and wonder at his magic, as he performs magic tricks for everyone, whilst they wait to get their faces painted, for FREE!

Finally, children must come in their best fancy dress and bring their scariest Halloween face, for a chance to WIN a £50 voucher for their favourite arc store.

These events are FREE to take part, however the shopping centre is asking for a donations to My WiSH Charity, as their charity of the year. My WiSH’s goal is to make sure that your friends, family and neighbours enjoy the best treatment and the best possible service when they visit West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds.

There will also be a selection of children’s attractions in Charter Square during this event and during the half term holiday. There are small charges for these attractions.

arc Centre Manager, Colin Roberts, said “This is another a great chance for families to come and enjoy our family events; we have a fabulously fun activity lined up to keep your little ones busy and with the addition of Harry Potter* making his magical appearance, we’re really excited! The kid’s events are always popular and it’s fantastic to be able to run them throughout the year, while supporting a great local charity such as My WiSH Charity.”

*As the real Harry Potter is busy making magic, it will be a very good friend and look-a-like joining us for lots of fun
