Question: Where’s the best place to be this October half-term?
Answer: Newbury!

This year’s hauntingly happy half-term Halloween Haunt Hunt takes place Monday 23 to Saturday 28 October, and is all set to be the best one the town has ever seen!

There will be 15 cauldrons hidden around Newbury town centre, each with a clue. All you need to do is:

1.     Collect a competition entry form from: the special Halloween workshops taking place in Parkway Shopping (opposite Costa Coffee, 11am – 4pm) and the Kennet Centre 9am–5pm; David Clulow opticians in Northbrook Street, plus various local retailers (see the website for details); or online at Visit Newbury.

2.     Write your answers on the form when you have found all the clues then crack the spookily secret code.

3.     Return your completed form to one of three ballot boxes at Parkway Shopping Halloween workshop, Kennet Centre Halloween workshop or David Clulow Opticians. Closing date/time for the competition is Saturday 28 October at 5pm.

4.     Keep everything crossed that you are going to be one of the lucky winners of a brilliant prize!

Winners will be picked and announced on 6 November. Prizes to be announced on the Visit Newbury Facebook and Twitter accounts, so make sure you visit. And why not let everyone else know what fun you’ve had on Newbury’s Halloween Haunt Hunt by tagging your photos with #NbyHalloween2017.

Happy Halloween Haunt Hunting!
