Halloween is creeping up on us and whether you’re Trick-or-Treating with little ones or hosting a spooky soirée, you’ll find everything you need for a spooktacular Halloween from retailers at The Centre – from devilish decorations and spine-tingling outfits to fiendishly good party essentials.

For a cool costume that’s guaranteed to please, look no further than M&S where you’ll find a fancy dress outfit to suit every personality – whether they want to channel their inner unicorn, dinosaur or mermaid or go for classic cute as a little pumpkin!

Why not let little heroes answer their calling in a super powered dress up set. With a funky tutu dress with stripe designs and cool gold details, it’s guaranteed to make them the most stylish superhero around – don’t forget to protect their real identity from the bad guys with the cute mask. M&S, from £18 (Image 1)

No kids’ fancy dress collection is complete without a zombie outfit – with ragged clothes and a super scary mask youngsters will feel like an extra in a zombie apocalypse in no time… now they just need to perfect their zombie walk! M&S, from £18. (Image 2)

Serve up party food in style with novelty Halloween picnicware from M&S. The durable melamine plate, £3.50, is dishwasher safe and features a spooky silhouette bat and spider design, while beakers, £3, and a cup with a swirly straw, £4, are the ideal way to hold their favourite gruesome drinks!

If you’re hosting a Halloween soirée, don’t forget to check out the party food selection at M&S – with mini pies, burgers and jigsaw sandwiches perfect for little witches and wizards, and indulgent treats like mini lobster mac and cheese for grown ups. We recommend their raspberry and orange mini fruit jellies (12 for £6) – loved by adults and little ones alike! (Image
