The Businesses of Bideford plan a week of Halloween family fun for October half term.
It’s time to dust off the costumes and get set for a Wicked Week of ghoulish fun in Bideford this Halloween.
The Businesses of Bideford (BoB) are once again planning a week of family-friendly workshops for October half-term.
Nicole Hickin, of event organisers Trepanning Through History, said the week promised free craft activities from October 24 – 30.
She said: “After the knockout success of last year’s Wicked Week, where so many came and learnt to be a monster, the Businesses of Bideford bring you Wicked Week 2015 – where we can all get batty about bugs!”
