Halloween is creeping closer and Manchester is set to be seriously spooky this year, as witches fly above, ghosts wander the streets and the Halloween in the City ghoulish monsters take over  Manchester once more. A particularly terrifying monster will be paying a ‘little’ visit to one of the city’s biggest Ice Rinks – Scare Skate at Cathedral Gardens. Here, the monster will remain from 21 October to 2 November.

Feeling brave? Visit Scare Skate and experience fear the fun way – on the ice! The spooktacular rink will be complete with Halloween-themed music and lighting, and don’t forget to get dressed up in your scariest costumes for a fully frightening experience! Scare Skate will be open throughout the half-term holidays, so its a great outing with your family if you fancy doing something a bit different.

Following Scare Skate, Cathedral Gardens will transform into a winter wonderland following its Halloween-themed opening week. A dazzling seven metre tall Christmas tree will take centre stage in the middle of a custom made ice path taking the spot occupied by the monster, who will probably be tired from all that scaring, or – full from all that EATING…
