A FUN Hallowe’en event will be coming to the Amman Valley.

The Brynamman Christmas Village will be hosting a weekend of spooky activities to celebrate the Hallowe’en period.

Between Friday, October 27 and Tuesday, October 31, a range of activities and events will be held for people of all ages, with a number of the events directly supporting local charity Joseph’s Smile.

South Wales Guardian: The spooky trick or treat trail will take place throughout the weekend

Across the weekend, there will be a spooky trick or treat trail which costs £5 for children and £2 for adults and teenagers who accompany the children. The trail will take participants through a range of spooky scenes where a number of Hallowe’en actors will give out sweets or chocolate. All of the profits from this trail will go to Joseph’s Smile to help support children with cancer and other conditions needing treatment not available on the NHS and their families.

Joseph Smile’s Emma Rees said: “We are really excited about it. The great thing about the opportunity that the owners of Brynamman Christmas Village have given us is we can put on events allowing us to fundraise and raise the profile of the charity and they don’t charge us for it.

“As well as fundraising for the children we support, one of our main aims right now is awareness because we couldn’t do what we do without more volunteers and people to help.”

Last year, the trick or treat trail sold out so anyone interested in taking part is advised to book early to avoid disappointment.

Alongside the trick or treat trail, there will be a pumpkin carving competition on Sunday, October 29, a costume competition on Hallowe’en itself and the return of a ghost train and a craft tent.

“I remember riding the ghost train when I was younger,” said Emma, “so it’s great that they have brought that back.”

There will also be live music throughout the weekend in the entertainment tent, with Ceri Dupree performing on Saturday, October 28, Dead Elvis on Sunday, October 29, and a Michael Jackson’s Thriller tribute on Monday, October 30 and Tuesday, October 31. The performances will be free entry and there will be collection buckets with the proceeds going to Joseph’s Smile.
