Causeplayers raising money for CHAS

The Edinburgh Children’s Halloween Party takes place on Sunday 28 October at The Edinburgh Corn Exchange, New Market Road, and the Capital Sci fi Causeplayers will be in attendance to ensure a super time is had by all.

The spooktacular child friendly event will feature a host of favourite super-heroes and characters from Galaxy’s far, far away as well as a kids DJ, party games and a costume contest - although fancy dress is optional.

All the ‘Causeplayer’ characters will be interacting and dancing along at the party.
