The Marshes Martian!

Published on 24th October 2018

Breaking News!

A Martian has crash landed in Marshes Shopping Centre this Halloween and is on the loose on the mall. There’s a crash zone in the Centre, but the Martian is nowhere to be seen…

Can you help us to find it? Local primary schools have helped us design a new spaceship for the Martian, made entirely from recyclable materials – we just know the Martian will love it, but we need to find it first!

To make the Marshes Martian feel at home during its stay at Marshes, we have plenty of alien and space themed activities for your Little Monsters to enjoy!

Join us from Saturday 27th October until Wednesday 31st October, 12-4pm each day for some out of this world activities!

We will have Galaxy Slime Making & Alien Head Bands, Rocket Making Craft & Paper Plane Wreaths, a trick or treat station & Halloween Games, Alien Trick or Treat Bag Making, Alien Making, Face painting and Alien Pom Pom Space Ships.

While you’re there, you can help us find our Martian with our Martian hunting packs, available during our Little Monsters activity. Pin your picture to our Sightings Board and help us find the Martian!

We’ve invited local primary schools to build a new spaceship to get the Martian back home. The ships are displayed on the mall, and the winning school will receive €350.00 towards their Art Department. To vote for your favourite, head over to our Facebook page:
