Trick or Treat on Tholsel Street 2017

A huge thank you to all who helped make this year’s Trick or Treat on Tholsel Street such a success.

I wish to especially thank the parents who created really fun street games for the children, our special bunch of twilight market traders, all those who came along dressed up for the occasion and the many local businesses who supported us too.  

The photographs are brilliant and capture this unique and special family event.
