There is a best costume prize, dancing and games. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
The adult fancy dress bash will run from 8pm to late. It will be free entry, with buffet supper. Prizes for best fancy dress, along with karaoke and disco.
On the same day, from 12noon to 3pm, staff at the Co-op store on Pickup Street in Clayton-le-Moors will wear fancy dress and hold face painting and a tombola. All proceeds will go towards the Clayton-le-Moors Christmas lights switch-on fund.
