2nd November 2015
Creepy Capers at Castle Dene!
Halloween has grown in popularity in the UK, with shoppers spending over
£450m this year alone as the creepy celebration becomes the second biggest
party night after New Year’s Eve.
Costumes based on the Mexican Day of the Dead, zombies, the grim reaper and
the 1980s film Ghostbusters were the most popular dress up options this year,
with many spooky spectacles seen on the streets of Peterlee over the weekend.
And with plenty of ghoulish goodies adorning Castle Dene’s shelves, there was
no shortage of ways to put the frighteners on friends and family.
To add to the spirited skullduggery, freaky frolics and ghostly goings on, Castle
Dene Shopping Centre hosted their own Monster Mugshots event on Friday
30th October. There was a free spooktacular Haunted House where big and little
kids could be transformed into marvellous monsters and gruesome ghouls, with
the help of the centre’s Fiendish Face Painters and Devilish Dress Up Crew.
What’s more, the Monster Mugshot Booth, found inside the house of horrors,
captured the results on Polaroid for people to take home and keep. These snaps
have also been uploaded to Castle Dene’s Facebook page, where followers are
currently voting for their favourite monstrous mugshot. The picture with the most
votes will win a spine-tingling £100 to spend in the centre. Voting closes on
Friday 6th November.
Barry Parnell, Castle Dene’s Centre Manager, says: “We were delighted to
host an exciting event for shoppers over the Halloween weekend. We have
had a great response to all the activities (both on the day and online) and
look forward to hosting more events and spectacular shows at Castle Dene
over the forthcoming months. There will also be further chances to win
high-value prizes and shopping vouchers!”
