SPOOKY Halloween events have been lined up at Merry Hill to entertain adults and children alike.

Gandeys Circus has returned to the shopping centre with a new seasonal show for Halloween and Merry Hill is also celebrating the return of the creepy House on the Hill attraction, which welcomed more than 11,000 visitors last year.

The all-new House on the Hill experience, located on the Lower Mall, opposite M&S and Mango, will host two different immersive sessions, with sound effects, light shows and live actors, for visitors to enjoy free of charge from Monday October 30 to Friday November 3.

The whole family can enjoy The Ghoul Disco which will play classic Halloween party anthems with a fun light show experience. And a slightly spookier session, The After Darkness will run from 5pm to 7pm on Halloween only.

Advance booking is recommended, particularly for The After Darkness event, although limited walk-ups may be available on the night.

Gandeys Circus has also returned to Merry Hill with a new action-packed Halloween spooktacular Big Top show – running until November 5.

Visitors can also pick-up costumes and masks to make-up and home décor for their Halloween celebrations at Europe’s largest Halloween store, Halloween House, which has re-opened at the shopping centre.

Jonathan Poole, centre manager at Merry Hill, said: “Our Halloween events are the perfect way to keep adults and children entertained this spooky season with experiences and activities suitable for all ages. The centre is alive with events, including the return of our unique ‘House on the Hill’ pop-up, back by popular demand and now with new features.”
