Things are getting spooky at Liverpool ONE for Halloween with giant spiders, parades and more
12 months ago
Liverpool ONE is set to bring spooks and scares to visitors this Halloween as it prepares to welcome all kinds of wicked witches, scary spiders and creepy delights!
The retail and leisure destination will stage a special Halloween party on Sunday 30 October from 12pm until 5pm, with families of all ages encouraged to join in the packed schedule of activities and don their very best fancy dress for the chance to win prizes.
Local drumming favourites Katumba will lead a special Halloween parade with the scary participants of the fancy dress contest being invited to join and show off their look to the crowds along the way.
Hosting the frightfully fun-filled extravaganza will be Radio City, with giant spider puppet Arachnobot parading through the crowds.
Other performances include ‘Uncle Doom’ and his Organ of Gloom, promising to bring all our favourite eerie tunes to Liverpool ONE, while magical and mystical giant living trees Treemendous Treants will be sure to mesmerise crowds.
Completing the line-up will be Slavic fairy tale witch Baba Yaga, who will tell your fortune in exchange for a day of your life… but be careful she doesn’t try to eat you!
A newly installed spooky gazebo by Poppy Belle Florals on South John Street will serve as the perfect Halloween backdrop for visitors in the run up to the scariest time of the year.
And, joining in on the scary fun will be a series of shops, bars and restaurants across Liverpool ONE showcasing exclusive treats and offers in time for half term.
Donna Howitt, Place Strategy Director at Liverpool ONE, said:
“Halloween is always a major part of our events calendar at Liverpool ONE – we absolutely love seeing families of all ages turn out in their fancy dress as they get into the spirit and join in the fun.
“This year, we’re thrilled to see the return of Arachnobot, as well as welcoming a whole host of other performers and activities.
“Bringing people together is something we’re incredibly passionate about and what better way to do this than with a fun-filled day of Halloween activities.”
