Marley the Monster has got themselves into a bit of a bother - they're scattered throughout the town centre and need your help getting back together again! Follow the trail around the shops and collect pieces of Marley along the way to connect and decorate at the last stop.

All monsters have been generously designed and supplied by DS Smith Launceston.

Starting at M4KE on Race Hill, you will be handed a trail map featuring highlighted businesses where pieces of Marley might be found. When you get to each stop, find a member of staff to find out if a piece of Marley is hiding there...or perhaps something else!
By saying the special password 'TRICK OR TREAT!' they will show you what they have!
Will it be a trick? Will it be a treat? Hopefully it will be a piece of Marley to put back together again!
When you reach the end of the trail there will be somewhere to put your monster together and decorate using arts & crafts.

Please note we ask for a voluntary donation to take part which can be paid at the starting point.
If you have any questions please drop us a message at

There are 2 competitions running for the event:

SPOOKIEST MARLEY - Post a picture of your decorated Marley on our Facebook page at Launceston Chamber of Commerce to be in with a chance of winning

FANCY DRESS - Calling all ghouls, witches, monsters, bats and pumpkins! Come along to the trail in halloween fancy dress and upload a picture to our Facebook page.

Winners are announced via Facebook on 1 November.

P.s. Don't forget your baskets and cauldrons; there'll be lots to collect!

Although we do our upmost to ensure we do not run out of monster pieces and treats, this is a first come first served event. You can reserve your spot at There is limited space available at the final point which may involve a wait time. You are welcome to take your monster home to decorate.
