Menacing magic and a trick or treat hunt could lead to high spirits in Nailsea this half-term.

Award-winning magician Oz Moses will be visiting Crown Glass Shopping Centre on October 28 to put on a magic show for young shoppers at 11.30am, 12.30pm, 2pm and 3pm.

The illusionist, who is a member of The Bristol Society of Magic, will be mesmerising shoppers with his dastardly tricks and sleight of hand.

Children will also be invited on a trick or treat hunt where they can collect stickers at four shops around the centre.

The names of every treasure-hunter will be put in a witch’s cauldron and one lucky winner will be treated to a Halloween prize.

If gurning is your game, there will be a ‘gurn and earn’ photo competition so fans can pull their craziest faces for the camera.

All the photos will be posted on the centre’s Facebook page for viewers to comment on and like if it gives them a fright. The five scariest faces receiving the most likes and comments on social media will receive a ghastly gift, with one winner receiving a £25 gift voucher.

Centre manager Charlotte Jarrett said: “Halloween increases in popularity each year.

“With trick or treating, face pulling, dressing up and a menacing magician, it promises to be very scary in the centre this Halloween half-term.”

People are also being invited to dress to scare ready for a Halloween fancy dress parade at 2.30pm.

Prizes will be awarded to the most frightening fiend, the scariest spectre, the ghastliest ghoul and the wackiest witch.
