Solihull shopping centre, Mell Square, is set to be a hive of activity during the upcoming October half-term break.
The centre boasts an exciting mix of retailers ideal for families looking for a fun day out.
To help you plan your next visit to Mell Square, here are five activities to keep you and your little ones entertained during the school holidays:
1) Solihull Spooktacular
Kick off the spooky season on Saturday 28 October with Solihull BID’s Solihull Spooktacular 2023. Crowds will gather in Mell Square, between 12 and 6pm, for a whole host of free activities, including face painting, a Halloween disco, zombie dancers, a kid’s Halloween workshop, and a children’s fancy-dress parade.
2) Bakes Makes Creates
For children who love to use their imagination, a visit to Bakes Makes Creates on Drury Lane is a must. The team is launching a week of Halloween sessions from Monday 30 October to Friday 3 November, including pumpkin carving, spooky cupcake and bat biscuit baking, and pumpkin pizza creation. All sessions are designed with children in mind, lasting 90 minutes, with supervision required for children under four.
3) Mini Halloween Disco
For more early-year fun, venture next door to Play Lane on 30 October for its Mini Halloween Disco. Sessions are available between 9.30am and 3.30pm, priced at just £1.
4) Discover great food deals
Mell Square is a hot spot when it comes to eating out. This half-term, visit Carluccio’s, where you can find 50% off all mains throughout October. Or for the colder days ahead, explore winter warmers at Tap & Tandoor and take advantage of great deals including a three-course kids’ meal for £6.95.
5) Astraea Designs
If you’re looking to treat yourself this season, get ready to be transported on a journey of self-discovery with Solihull’s first permanent holistic wellness store, Astraea Designs. Bookings are now open for its popular Amethyst Meditation sound bath on 28 October, as well as its unforgettable Halloween Psychic Night on 27 October.
