This year Acis is working with the Trinity Foundation, Lincolnshire Police and St John's Ambulance and they are hoping to get far more agencies involved during the main event in January and February 2018.

A free hot meal and drink is provided for all attendees.

Activities on the night include:


•Nail art

•Bat box painting and assembling

•Halloween Cookie decorating

•Music / chat room
