Ghouls and ghosts, witches and werewolves will roam the Market Square on Saturday as all the horror of Halloween comes to Haverhill.

St Edmundsbury Council’s popular crafts and gifts market is making its return with around a dozen stalls, selling a mix of items.

Alongside the regular market the borough council has organised fun Halloween activities like a trick or treat treasure hunt, spooky puppet show and apple bobbing.

There will also be a swingboat and roundabout rides for children to enjoy while every youngster in fancy dress will win a prize.

The fun takes place between 10am and 3pm.

Cllr Peter Stevens, St Edmundsbury Borough Council cabinet member for operations, said: “This is the fifth crafts and gifts market that we have held this year in Haverhill.

“They have always been very popular and add to the mix of items sold by our regular market traders. It is certainly worth a visit for those of us already turning our attention to buying Christmas gifts.”
