A series of 'spooktacular' events are being held in King's Lynn to celebrate Halloween.

The Custom House, which houses the town's tourist information centre, is hosting an event for children, 'Greedy Ghosts and Ghouls in the Hunt for Jelly Beans', which started yesterday and runs until Saturday, October 31.

There will be fun for all ages, with two different activities. Children under eight will hunt for tokens hidden around the maritime exhibition and collect a sweet treat while older children must match the jelly beans with the names of the greedy ghosts and ghouls hidden on the second floor, for their sweet treat. Any child in fancy dress will receive an extra treat.

Meanwhile, at an event on October 31, organised by West Norfolk Council and the Vancouver Quarter, a special trail has been set up around the town centre. Between noon and 4pm, children and their parents must report to the Halloween HQ on Baxter's Plain, to collect a special card before collecting stickers from Halloween characters to get a goodie bag.

Abbie Panks, Vancouver Quarter centre manager, said: 'This is one of the highlights of the year for the centre and we once again look forward to welcoming hundreds of children to this year's event. This free event gets bigger every year and it's always lovely for us to see so many children dressed up for the occasion.'
