Youngsters will be asked to let their imaginations run wild as the High Witch Priscilla, pictured above in a Halloween capsule, sets out to thwart the ghoulish Grimly Grim, voiced by the comedian Harry Enfield.

He said: “Halloween is a really fun time and I think it’s important for children to be able to let their imaginations run loose.

“They should be encouraged to go into a world of make-believe for a while and create their own stories and voices.”
