This October Manchester BID is once again bringing the UK’s biggest Halloween celebration to Manchester city centre.

On Saturday 27 & Sunday 28 October we’ll be marking the arrival of Halloween with a weekend of terrifyingly good events. Featuring: a giant rooftop monster invasion, Trick or Treat trail, skeleton parade, Room on the Broom, Heart’s monster hits, and spooky specials from CBeebies and CBBC – plus events and offers from the biggest, baddest names in shopping, food, drink and entertainment.

The city’s shops, bars and restaurants will be taking part in the celebrations by hosting special events, themed menus and dressing staff and venues.
