There’s sure to be plenty of spooky goings-on in Manchester city centre this Halloween. Visitors are invited to go on a trick or treat trail, meet a momentous monster and navigate a haunted maze.

You can also expect Pumpkin patches, family films and spooky stage acts. Follow a ‘Day of the Dead’-style parade or take part in ‘the Big Dress Up’ - it’s your opportunity to strut your gory stuff in a Goth Catwalk show to win scarily-good prizes. Let your hair down at the Halloween party nights, and view the thousands of pumpkin lanterns lighting up the city street along with devilish displays and spooky shop windows.
