Halloween in the City

Date & Time
City Centre

Manchester Business Improvement District (BID) works with partners, retailers and cultural venues to celebrate Halloween. 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 BID has so far delivered four consecutive celebrations and marketing campaigns for Halloween in the City in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

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