This October, The Heart Shopping Centre is excited to announce that they will be spreading some Halloween magic with free magic shows and balloon modeling for children.
Taking place on Thursday 28th October between 11 am and 3 pm, children of all ages will be able to enjoy two free magic shows followed by a free balloon model.
These Halloween-themed magic shows will be held by Magic Mike who generated queues of excited children at our recent Family Fun Day when he transformed balloons into dinosaurs, swans, snakes and more!
Each magic show will take place inside the covered mall and will include 20-minutes of mind-boggling magic that’s guaranteed to leave your little ones amazed! These fun-filled shows will take place at 12 pm and 2 pm and although they are free of charge we are advising that parents pre-book a slot for their children to watch via The Heart website (www.heartshopping.co.uk).
In addition to these magical activities, The Heart has also joined up with Walton BID to offer even more fang-tastic Halloween fun.
Head down to The Heart between 11 am and 3 pm on Thursday 28th October to enjoy free face painting by our popular face painter Jackie from About Faces!
Head over to Walton Library on Nettlefold Walk on Thursday 28th October to take part in their free craft workshops - more details to follow via The Heart Instagram and Facebook pages!

Mark Middleton, Centre Manager at The Heart Shopping Centre comments: “We’re delighted that we are able to host a great array of free activities this October Half Term. Our recent One Great Day event back in September was a huge hit raising over £1,600 for charity and although this isn’t a charity event, we’re sure it will generate excellent footfall and of course, add a real spooky touch to the Centre. As always, the safety of our retailers and visitors is our primary priority so we do ask visitors to wear a face-covering should they be in a queue or crowd for the safety of, our hand sanitiser stations also remain so again we ask that these are used before and after attending the events.”
From Wednesday 13th October visitors to The Heart Shopping Centre can also enjoy the Centre’s Halloween decorations - why not share a picture of them on social media (don’t forget to tag us!).
