Manchester's first ever ‘Halloween in the City', organised by Manchester's Business Improvement District, the Heart of Manchester BID, and sponsored by Party Delights, promises a frightful array of family friendly activities, on-street entertainment and shopping events.

The city centre will undergo a terrifying transformation with huge cemetery gates accompanied by a spooky sound trail. More than 4000 pumpkin lanterns will line the city's streets and as night befalls Manchester some of the city's most iconic buildings including the Town Hall, Selfridges and House of Fraser will be lit up green to mark the cometh of Halloween.

On Saturday 29th, the city centre will be full of free family-friendly Halloween activities including a giant animatronic spider which will stalk the city's shopping streets, appearances by grave diggers and gothic characters, a New Orleans funeral march and an amazing one-off adventure at Wild Rumpus' Dr Dee's Secret Curiosity Shop.

Theatres, restaurants, museums and venues across the city are also cooking up plans to mark the passing of Halloween including costume parades, ghost tours and horror films with live orchestral scores.

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
