Behind the scenes: Intu shopping centres run trick or treat events

More than 3,500 children went trick or treating at Intu shopping centres this weekend.


Debenhams at intu Trafford Centre, Cath Kidston at intu Metrocentre and Hamleys at intu Lakeside were among hundreds of high street names taking part in big trick or treat events at the shopping centres on Saturday and Sunday.

Scary shoppers were on the hunt for the carved pumpkins on display in shop windows at intu centres up and down the country, which signalled that a tasty treat, or terrifying trick, lay in store.

The big trick or treat weekend was run by intu as part of its mission to ‘make it fangtastic’ for families this half term, with free activities like pumpkin carving and scary mask making taking place at every one of its shopping centres throughout the school holidays.

Earlier this month bread brand Hovis ran a three-day sampling activation at shopping centre Intu Lakeside, to mark its ongoing partnership with DreamWorks Animation's latest feature film, Trolls.
