28 October 2023 saw Artists Attic playing its part as stop number 6 on the Dewsbury Halloween Trick or Treat Trail.
The trail was delivered by local shop keepers interested in promoting their shops by enticing the children inside with making and creating activities based around the spooky Halloween theme. The ghoulish images on the wall certainly provided inspiration for some of the kids. Meanwhile, the virtues of shopping local can be extolled to their accompanying parents.
Of course, everyone left with a treat in hand.
Artists Attic doesn't sell anything as yet - but we are interested in getting young people interested in creativity, in expressing how they feel about whatever subject is in mind at the time. So Halloween served our purpose on this occasion.
The Trick or Treat trail was the first part of the package of community activities planned by the Arcade-Dewsbury group in the run up to the re-opening of the Arcade in early 2025 after extensive refurbishment.
