Halloween 2021 in Liverpool – what we know so far
2 years ago
Summer is officially over and as we move into autumn, there is only one thing on our minds – Halloween.
It is that time of year when the leaves are starting to turn orange, pumpkin spice is everywhere and the evenings get that little bit darker.
However, arguably the best thing about autumn is the one night of the year where you can dress up, watch horror films and eat sweets.
So to get into the Halloween spirit, here is a list of everything we know so far about what is happening around Merseyside this October.

Pumpkin picking can be turned into a full day event and luckily, there are plenty of places close to Liverpool to find yours.
