Halloween is just around the corner and one North West event promises to be a haunting adventure for all the family.

Spookfest a spooky spectacle of hair-raising horrors and lots of tasty treats (and tricks!), is coming to the Trafford Centre this month.

Creep into the haunted hay bale maze, take a ride on the ghastly ghost train and marvel at the Halloween Spooktacular big top show.

Spookfest will be situated outside The Orient, opposite The Great Hall entrance, and is open every day from 11 - 31 October.

Independent food and drink brands will be serving deliciously devilish dishes, including Epic Pizza, Old School Dogs and Cha Cha Chai, and thrill seekers will love the frightful selection of rides, including ghost train, escape rooms, hook a pumpkin and spooky hay bale maze for all the family.

As part of Spookfest, there will be other activities taking place across the centre, including spine-chilling show dances over Halloween weekend, as well as creepy cocktails and exclusive treats to try at some of the centre’s restaurants.

Spookfest, a huge outdoor event, follows the success of ‘Summer Social’, which saw in excess of 200,000 visitors and local celebrities enjoy some fun in the sun.

Zoe Inman, Centre Director, said: “Celebrate the spooky season in style! Spookfest promises some frightful fun for both grown-up thrill seekers and little monsters, offering something for everyone this Halloween. Enter if you dare!”
