Celebrate Harry Potter with a day of magical fun this Halloween!

SOUTHPORT'S annual Halloween Festival, is put on by Southport BID and is now in it's 3rd year.   This year, the week long event will have even more twist, turns and changes then ever!  The festival aims to bring lots of fun and entertainment to the Town Centre during the Autumn ½ Term, this year, with a series of great events within the Town Centre all set to thrill and spook Halloween fans of every age.

The latest news is that Harry, Hagrid and Dumbledore will be flying into Southport for an afternoon of tricks treats and surprises marking the wizard's 20th Anniversary.  They will be joined by Professor Sprout and her wand making workshop and kids will learn their wizard house with a chance to sit underneath the sorting hat.  Diane Celine Photography, from Wesley Street, Southport,  will also be on hand for kids to have the chance to dress up as a wizard in their very own photo shoot!  We are also told that the Hogwarts Owls will also be joining the fun, along with some of their special creepy, crawly friends.

Marie Curie will be holding a fire walking contest, plus you will also find a monster petting zoo popping up!  Other events included within this year's festival includes 4 days of mischievous family fun within a grand central marquee, a 2 day Indie Horror film festival at The Atkinson, and on Saturday, 28 October, a 16 foot spider will be roaming the streets... So be warned, you might find out your dinner for this Arachobot as the  puppet as it navigates its way amongst the crowds looking for dinner and a playmate.

Hugh Evans of Southport BID says of the festival:- "We are really excited for this year's festival. It was time for a change and so we took on board feedback and have tried to create a real festival feel event with things to see and do all week and throughout the Town Centre. We are particularly excited about securing the Arachnobot; it has appeared in Cities and festivals around the world and we think it will be a really thrilling, fun family spectacle that will get people talking!"

Also keep an eye out for a series of events and other performances, most of which we are told will be free...
