Halloweekend

This October Manchester city centre retailers present Halloweekend! – a two-day family friendly spooktacular.

Thousands of pumpkins lanterns transform the shopping streets and Manchester’s iconic buildings glow an eerie green, after hours.

Dare to enter the Haunted Maze to meet the creepy creatures inside and try the Trick or Treat Hunt, there’s a sweet or scary surprise behind every (giant) door.

Don’t miss artist Filthy Luker’s momentous monster at one (un)lucky Manchester store and follow the Day of the Dead-style parade with puppets, street performers and freaky dancing.

Head to the Capital FM main stage for DJs, a Canine Catwalk, Goth Fashion Show and the chance to strut your costumed stuff. Get the whole family involved in the biggest fancy dress-up in Halloween history to win.

There’s also big screen showings of everyone’s favourite family classics: Ghostbusters, Hocus Pocus and Hotel Transylvania.

Plus store events and offers from the biggest, baddest names in shopping, food and drink.

Head to Market Street, St Ann’s Square, Exchange Square, Deansgate and King Street for all the fun.
