An explosive blend of energy, circus, pyrotechnics, and visual artistry that promises to leave you in awe.

Accrington Makers Market returns 
But wait, the excitement doesn't end there! 
Following the overwhelmingly successful launch of Accrington Makers Market, over 50 makers will return for the second time from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM in Accrington Town Square. Showcasing "fang-tastic" handcrafted goods, from mouthwatering food to exquisite home decor, spine-tingling art, jewellery, it's the perfect place to "trick-or-treat" yourself whilst supporting local artisans. 

Spooky screenings…
And that's not all - it's not just a bunch of Hocus Pocus! For movie lovers and Halloween enthusiasts, Accrington Town Hall has two spooky screenings. At 4:00 PM, the Boo-tiful Ballroom will be visited by the Sanderson sisters on the big screen for the classic family favorite "Hocus Pocus". Accrington Town Hall will be offering no tricks, only treats with Halloween food and drinks available to purchase. Following Hocus Pocus, the wonderful local business Create Yourself will be delivering a variety of crafty Halloween activities inside the Town Hall ahead of the Blast! performance at 7pm.

Arroooo! After the 7:00 PM "BLAST" performance, summon your friends and family for lots of laughter at the exclusive adult-only screening of the cult classic "Beetlejuice". The dark comedy will light up the ballroom at 8:30 PM.
Tickets for films must be booked in advance through ticketsource and are priced at just £3 per person for Hocus Pocus and £5 per person for Beetlejuice. Food is available to pre-order, snacks and drinks will be available to purchase inside Accrington Town Hall. It's the ideal way to welcome Halloween with a fun-filled date with your boo, friends and loved ones.
