Looking for some ghoulish family fun this half term? Halloween in the City brings a week-long programme of Halloween-themed events across Manchester city centre.

Halloween in the City 2020 sees the return of those giant inflatable monsters to the Mancunian skyline. The creepy characters once again invade some of Manchester’s most popular landmarks including 111 Piccadilly, Manchester Arndale, Spinningfields, Selfridges, the Great Northern Warehouse and The Printworks.

Additionally, Manchester has been decorated with thousands of pumpkin lanterns. Standing guard across the city, the colourful trail can be found on First Street, St Anns Square, Market Street, Spinningfields and Exchange Square.
