Some spook-tacular things will be taking place through the haunted gates of Lakeside Village with a Hallowe’en weekend of free, Harry Potter themed fun.

Harry Potter, Hagrid, Professor Sprout and Professor McGonagall lookalikes will be visiting on Saturday and kids will be invited to take part in wand making workshops, scary face painting, a Sorting Hat experience and a wicked wizard treasure hunt.

If you dare to return on Sunday, the centre will have been invaded by frightful creepy crawlies including pythons, king snakes, bearded dragons and tarantulas. There will also be balloon modelling, even more spooky face painting and another wizard treasure hunt challenge.

The free entertainment takes place from 11am to 4pm on both days.
