Halloween sits significantly around the Autumn half term holiday and in a vital pre-Christmas spending window. The keynote of Messages PR activities is participation, circulation and originality. Over the years, we have highlighted themes of zombies, day of the dead, vampires and ghosts and in 2017 we organised halloween parties in 17 cafes and restaurants. Plans for 2018 include a live remake of 'Ghostbusters' and slime workshops.
For the last three years, we have distributed carving kits, accessories and pumpkins, encouraging stores to sculpt these in the style of their business. This has stimulated a creative flair and competitive spirit amongst the stores that has surprised and delighted shoppers viewing both in store and on online galleries.
