Paper Tiger has been getting Leicester ready for the party for as long as we can remember.

Situated on Cank Street they’re your one stop party shop for decorations, balloons, fancy dress and so much more. Halloween is one of their busiest times of the year so we caught up with them for this week’s BID Leicester Spotlight feature.

Tell us a little about Paper Tiger and what you offer?

We are a one-stop party shop for every party you could imagine. Birthdays, baby showers, gender reveals, stag and hen dos, themed parties and more. From fancy dress to backdrops, we’ve got it all in store.

Halloween must be a big time of year for you, what special spooky products do you have in store?

Yes, Halloween is a big time of year for us! We have a huge range of items including banners, masks, full fancy dress costumes, wigs, make-up, themed plates and catering items, backdrops and big scary props.

What are some of your favourite items you stock?

I think mine would have to be the balloons. We do such a big range for every occasion.

What is it about Paper Tiger that’s meant it’s had such a long history in Leicester?

I’d say it’s because we’re very unique. There’s nowhere else in the city centre who is offering the range of party items that we do.

Christmas will soon be upon us too, have you started planning for that yet?

Yes, as soon as Halloween is over we’re in full on Christmas mode. We already have some items in and the store will be packed with it from November.
