Trick or treat yourself this Halloween with us Article
Halloween is here again; a time for thrills and chills with scary films, trick or treating and ghoulish games all high on the agenda. With the most spook-tacular night of the year slowly creeping up on us, it’s time to hang the cobwebs, light the lanterns and gather your favourite vampires, ghosts, skeletons and witches for a night of fiendish fun.
To mark this year’s all hallows’ eve, we’ve pulled together a list of the best tricks and treats to be found at Victoria Centre.
With Halloween home accessories, including smashing Pumpkin Cookware (£22 for a pack of two), Set of 4 Ghost Tumbler Glasses (£14) and a friendly Ghost Platter (£14), you’ll be sure to host a spine-tingling party to die for.
Complete with a festive banner, balloons and pumpkin paper decoration, this Halloween Party Decorations Kit gives you the final touch and helps sets the scene for a night of monster mashing (£10).

Conjure up a spooky woodland setting with the burning Autumn Nature Walk candle, sending fresh notes of bay leaf, bergamot, lavender, sandalwood and vetiver into the air.
Inspired by wickedly sweet treats, the fruity Crisp Campfire Apples blends apple and mandarin fragrances with cinnamon stick, oak leaf and tonka for a devilishly delicious scent. Or, cast a captivating spell with Witches Brew, combining exotic sweet patchouli, jasmine and vanilla with spicy woody notes of clove and cinnamon. The perfect black flame candle to light this Halloween.
All of these items are £24.99 for the large jar candle and £20.99 for the medium jar candle. For more seasonal candles and fragrances, visit Yankee Candle instore on the upper mall.
