Halloween Manchester Monsters 

Date & Time

Manchester BID celebrates Halloween each year. The seasonal event has become the fastest growing consumer festival in the UK retail calendar and we are therefore working to harness the occasion on behalf of levy payers – as a chance to attract visits and spend – and also have some Fun.

The annual event is a family-friendly festival and we showcase the range of events across the city through a digital media partnership with Marketing Manchester. Our national press campaign is managed by our agency Echo PR.
