Trick or treat? You either love it or hate it. I confess to only being converted to the former since I have had my children. I used to switch off the lights and pretend I wasn't home till about 9pm until I thought it was
safe to look like I was home. But since having my children I have been drawn into the whole event and eagerly look for family activities to go to. I am quite happy to gather a big pile of sweets ready for when the doorbell
goes and ooh and ahh over the outfits. It's the 15+ trick or treaters that I don't agree with. Some can be intimidating at times and grab huge handfuls of sweets.
There are quite a few events being run by bestof hitchin members and I thought it useful to give a whistlestop tour. On Friday 30th October at 4pm, The Millstream Pub are holding a childrens halloween event. The Bucks
Head in Little Wymondley and The Victoria Pub on Ickleford Road both have halloween parties with music. Christopher Biggins is hosting a halloween gala night at the Queen Mother Theatre in Aid of the Youth Wing and Letchworth Hall Hotel is holding a halloween Murder Mystery Evening. A popular event is the Hitchin Ghost Walk organised by Hitchin Town Initiative which starts at 6pm.
Don't panic if you haven't thought of a costume to wear, Dance of Hitchin has a special offer on buy or hire halloween and accessories. 10% off with this voucher so there is no excuse not to look scary!
