Town’s Hal­lowe’en fes­ti­val is more grue­some than ever – ghoul love it!

Midweek Visiter - - News -

AS we come to­wards the end of the sum­mer sea­son, we are al­ready a step ahead and look­ing for­ward to the Au­tumn/Winter sea­son in South­port.

There is no doubt the weather has not been on our side this year, but South­port has so much to of­fer be­yond the last Bank Hol­i­day of the year.

Of course the Air Show and Fire­work Cham­pi­onships are just round the cor­ner and be­yond that, our very own Hal­lowe’en Fes­ti­val re­turns for its fourth year, but with a whole new for­mat. We have packed the half term with some great events all de­signed to ap­peal to a broad age range and bring fam­i­lies into South­port for some great, free Hal­lowe’en en­ter­tain­ment.

The fes­ti­val’s new ded­i­cated web­site – spookysouth­ – is now live and there are dozens of great events and per­for­mances.

Arachno­phobes will have to look out for the 16ft spi­der pup­pet roam­ing the street!

We also have hot coal walking, ghoul­ish show per­for­mances and a very spe­cial Harry Pot­ter day.

There is lots to look for­ward to and we hope to see lots of lo­cal busi­nesses join­ing in the fun with their own events, of­fers and dis­plays to make sure the whole town has a real sense of fun and ex­cite­ment for fam­i­lies look­ing to fill the week off.

Every­thing kicks off with an in­de­pen­dent hor­ror film fes­ti­val at The Atkin­son, Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 20.

As we draw nearer the end of our third year, we are look­ing to cre­ate fo­cus or steer­ing groups to help shape how the next two years look.

Any BID levy pay­ing busi­ness own­ers with pos­i­tive, con­struc­tive ideas and in­put to give should get in touch with us if they are in­ter­ested.

The groups will re­view and eval­u­ate cur­rent projects and help pro­vide the seeds of fu­ture ones.

Each group will be tar­geted to some­thing spe­cific, for ex­am­ple, in­de­pen­dents, re­tail and events.

If you are in in­ter­ested and think you could re­ally bring some great feed­back and ideas to the ta­ble then please call or email.
