Sandwell Council has lined up an exciting free programme of Halloween events this half-term for all the family with virtual events aimed at children of all ages.


These events, aimed at young people aged 11-19, will be hosted on the Just Youth Sandwell Facebook page throughout half-term: 


Online activities include competitions, spooky stories, a nightmare walk with Malthouse Stables, upcycle your own costume and a dance video competition for staff and young people.


For younger children aged five to 12, Go Play Sandwell is hosting virtual Halloween parties through Zoom and will be bringing spooky fun to the homes of those who join in. Children can dress up and get involved in fun games at these virtual sessions.


Parties take place with six sessions each day until Saturday October 31 and can be accessed through the Go Play website:


Councillor Joyce Underhill, cabinet member for best start in life, said: "We wanted to offer some extra sessions this Halloween for children and young people to enjoy from home.


"There is fun for all the family to get involved in and we hope young people will log on to get involved with our half-term Halloween events."
