The month of October has here, and with it comes the countdown to one of the most important holidays of the year: Halloween. This year in Manchester, everyone can take part in the scary season. You'll be able to celebrate whether you enjoy being scared or prefer to hide behind the sofa with creepy live-action and interactive activities, terrifying film festivals, and even ghostly skating. If you are staying at one of our newest additions to the home away from home Dream Apartments family in Manchester, here is part 2 of our top recommendations for what's going on around the city.
Halloween in the City
If you've visited Manchester for Halloween in the past several years, you'll recall the massive inflatable monsters that take over the city's roofs. As part of the larger Halloween in the City events, they'll be back for another year.
Characters will be present at Manchester Arndale, Selfridges, Printworks, Cathedral Gardens Ice Rink, The Royal Exchange, Spinningfields, Great Northern, 111 Piccadilly, and Kampus. They're back for another year, with eight terrifying figures hidden across Exchange Square, Manchester Arndale, New Cathedral Street, Printworks, and St. Ann's Square.
They'll be with us between October 25 and 31.
Spookfest at the Trafford Centre
Spookfest is a fantastic event for the whole family, with a terrifying range of eerie rides and frightful Halloween-themed attractions to keep you and your children amused. They'll be open from October 11 to October 31, so you'll have plenty of time to visit and be scared.
From October 15 to 31, families may also experience Gandeys Circus' Halloween Spooktacular Big Top Show, which was created by the founders of Cirque Surreal and the Chinese State Circus.
Food and drink are available on site. Advanced tickets are available online.
Halloween at The Warehouse Project
For some, Halloween is just another excuse to let loose and enjoy the finest of the city's nightlife. The Warehouse Project's annual Halloween celebration is the biggest and best of them all. Annie Mac headlines what is set to be one of the season's most anticipated club events. Skream, B2B, Eats Everything, Denis Sulta, and more are among the artists on the bill.
Halloween Farm Fun at Reddish Vale Farm
If you're looking for some good old-fashioned family fun this Halloween, Reddish Vale Farm has lots of options. There's a whole day of frightening season fun for the entire family, from the Spooky Express tractor ride to pumpkin carving and Vampire Archery.
Pumpkin Festival at Grange Farm
Are you a pumpkin fan? Then you'll want to pay a visit to Grange Farm, which is celebrating all things pumpkin this Halloween. At this family-friendly event, you can choose pumpkins, carve them, feed farm animals, have your face painted, and much more. The event lasts from October 16 until October 31. However, you can start picking pumpkins on October 1.
