Cocoa Loco

The West Grinstead-based chocolatiers have a few spooky treats in their Halloween collection. The chocolate eyeballs make the perfect trick-or-treat offering. Also available are lollies, with dark, milk or white chocolate owls as well as milk chocolate lips.

The Birdham-based chocolatier is gearing up for another fearsome October this year. On offer are hand-crafted dark and milk chocolate treats in shapes ranging from ghosts and skulls to pumpkins. Also available are strawberry ganache-filled eyeballs!

Slindon Pumpkins

Thanks to late founder Ralph Upton, Slindon has the reputation of being the UK’s pumpkin capital. Now headed by his son Robin, the team puts on a display every autumn; 2016’s supported Sussex Wildlife Trust and was named The Birds and the Bees. Whether they’re for carving or eating, there’s a variety of pumpkins and squashes on sale throughout the season.

A G Hendy Home Store

This unique Hastings shop is an ideal spot if you’re after Halloween party props. The straw broom at £20 should be high on your shopping list whilst other offerings include vintage pharmacy bottles and first aid trunks; both of which will help set a spooky scene.

Halloween at Borde Hill

From 21-31 October, Borde Hill is hosting a range of Halloween events including a world record attempt on the 29 October for the longest line of carved pumpkins. Young visitors will all receive a treat from the resident witch with more entertainment in the marquee.
