In the lead up to Hallowe’en, Brewery Square is welcoming families to the Dorchester development to take part in its annual free ghost hunt.

Ghosts and ghouls will be hidden throughout the Square and the brave hunters who find them will be rewarded with a prize. The Brewery Square Hallowe’en Ghost Hunt is open to families from 10am until 3pm on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 October.

Charlotte Spracklen, centre manager for Brewery Square, commented: “Our Brewery Square Hallowe’en Ghost Hunt is always a great event and it welcomes lots of families here each year. We can’t wait to see what fancy dress outfits are worn this year, and are hosting a competition for the ‘best dressed’ participant.”

This year the event will be taking donations for the development’s chosen charity, Home-Start West Dorset, which provides friendship and practical support to local families with children under the age of five years old.

The ghost hunt is open to children up to 15 years old. All entrants are required to collect an entry form on the day from the Concierge Office, opposite the Dorchester South Train Station, in order to start hunting. Completed forms should be returned for a prize.

A new addition to this year’s proceedings is a ‘best dressed’ competition, awarding a prize to the child with the spookiest costume.

The retail offering at Brewery Square includes HOBBS, Phase Eight, Joules, Avenue Interiors, Woods Furniture, Morrish and Banham wine merchant and tasting room, Belle Modelle and more. Restaurants include – Zizzi, Carluccio’s, Wagamama, Cote Brasserie and more. Visit for more information.
