The Village Screen Halloween Weekend at Victoria Baths, Manchester 27 — 28 October 2017 Tickets from £10.00 — Book now

Victoria Baths is set to don its Halloween garb and scare the children this October as pop-up cinema experts The Village Screen arrive for a weekend of delightfully creepy movies. Set over two days, with afternoon events for families, and evening screenings strictly dedicated to the grown-ups, the swimming baths will play host to old-school favourites The Addams Family, Beetlejuice and Hocus Pocus.

Street food traders The Blue Caribou Canteen, Mac Daddies and Dim Sum Su will keep you fed whilst The Village Screen bar will provide the watering – with special Halloween-themed cocktails created for the event. As usual, the pool will be filled with comfortable deckchairs – though we’d recommend you bring a blanket too – and there will be fearsome face painting, spooky tunes and ghostly decor to set the mood.
