Free workshops and pumpkins for the young in town centre

Pumpkin carving workshops

Pumpkin carving workshops


Three children’s craft-making workshops will be held in Great Yarmouth Market Place to coincide with Halloween during half-term week.

The Town Centre Partnership workshops will include carving scary faces into pumpkins and turning innocent wooden spoons into frightening puppets. The craft-making activities will be facilitated by the team from Jankie D’s Community Workshops with helpers on hand to assist with the puppet and pumpkin creations.

The drop-in workshops, with no need to book, are from 11am to 3pm from October 26-28.

All children taking part in any of the activities must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

The workshops and pumpkins are free of charge but any donations offered will be accepted in aid of the BBC Children In Need appeal.
