Manchester Has Been Invaded By Giant Monsters For Halloween

Here's where you can find them...

Halloween In The City Manchester

Halloween in the City returns later this month, bringing loads of spooky events to Manchester.

Headlining this year's event is a collection of eight inflatable giant monsters, created by artists Filthy Luker and Pedro Estrellas.

This brand new collection of inflatable monstrosities have taken over some of the city's most iconic rooftops, including Manchester Arndale, House of Fraser, Manchester Hall, Mayfield, Piccadilly Place and 35 Dale Street.

Halloween in the City is taking place across Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 October, and will see the city centre come alive with a whole host of spooky free events for the whole family.

There'll be a Trick or Treat Trail around the city centre, an Enchanted Forest featuring a Room on the Broom Zone by family theatre specialists Z-arts, wand and potion making at the Magic School, and a Pumpkin Patch Sensory Play Zone for under-5s – all coming to St Ann’s Square.

The main stage in Exchange Square will see a packed line-up, including showings of CBeebies favourites Hey Duggee, Sarah & Duck, Go Jetters and School of Roars and CBBC’s Creeped Out, Scream Street, Zig & Zag, The Worst Witch and Strange Hill High, plus a new Danger Mouse Halloween special.

Heart North West’s Joel & Lorna will host a Ghostly World Record Attempt on Saturday 27 October in Exchange Square. To get involved, bring a bed sheet in a bid to gather the most ghosts in one place, helping to raise money for Manchester’s homeless charity, Big Change Manchester.

For adults, Séance by DARKFIELD at The Royal Exchange Theatre is an unmissable immersive Halloween experience.
