  • Fright night attraction for town’s fourth Halloween Festival should be a-maze-ing!

    Danielle Thompson

    A giant spectacle is being put on in Southport as the centrepiece of the towns Halloween Festival.

    The fourth annual event is organised by Southport BID and this year will feature a giant two-metre high maze, as well as four days of family -friendly activities from Thursday, October 25 to Sunday, October 28.

    Sarah Rodriguez, one of the event organisers said: “The maze will be filled with spooky characters to make mischief and try and thwart anyone trying to make their way round!

    “It will open on October 25 with a very special Tiny Monsters day with Starkidz. Little ones can help our Ghost Busters hunt down the spooks hiding around each corner and meet some of their favourite Disney villains waiting to play!

    “The maze then opens fully on Friday 26 for three days of utter mischief for every generation. Giggle and scream as you try to make it all the way through without meeting one of the ghosts, witches and ghouls and try to hope you aren’t the one they set their sites on for some mischief!

    “The festival, now in it’s fourth year has grown into a four-day event with visitors coming to the town from throughout the region to enjoy all the spooky family fun!”

    Hugh Evans of the BID said: “We are really excited about the maze and the way the festival is growing. We want to deliver a great event that can appeal to all age groups and really help bring people into the town centre for the day.

    “The festival has continued to grow each year and gets such a positive response from Halloween fans online. It adds to an already superb annual events calendar for the town and helps keep Southport’s profile high out of season and for the October half term.

    “Look out for other great events going on in and around the town centre all week, including giant dragons and their druid keepers. The dragons will appear on Chapel Street on Saturday, October 27 and will move and dance to choreographed music as they breath out smoke!

    “There are also more announcements to come about other spooky pop-up events coming including the Greatest Halloween Show and a ghost pirate ship!”
