Manchester Halloween Parade
The 8th Annual Manchester Halloween Parade took place on Sunday 30th October with over 1000 people in attendance.
The parade started and ended at The Printworks and took the creepy creatures of Manchester on a walk around the City for them to release their inner zombie. Everything from Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice and Harley Quinn descended on the scheme with an array of incredible fancy dress and make up.
Key103 came down with DJ Tom Green from Key3 to get revelers excited for the walk and The Printworks DJ, Mike Seno, created a party atmosphere full of Halloween tunes once the Parade returned to the scheme.
The chosen charity for this years’ parade was Save the Children and we are pleased to announced that over £1,200.00 was raised for the charity. Save the Children was founded in 1919 by two sisters, from Ellesmere, Shropshire, who had a vision to achieve and protect the rights of children. Almost 100 years later, that vision continues to guide the work of Save the Children with the charity now working in 120 countries including the UK.
House of the Dead
The Printworks also had one of the UK’s leading ‘dark attractions’, House of the Dead, onsite to add more spookiness to the scheme. For ten days the interactive horror experience “Nightmare Emporium” scared punters with demonic toys, roaming zombies, monsters and creatures of the night.
Cooked up by the evil minds involved in some of the UK’s most successful horror attractions, House of the Dead was packed full of theme rooms designed with people’s worst nightmares in mind. The attraction took punters on a terrifying walk-through journey in an unreal world made up of phenomenal, ‘horror movie quality’ sets, routes of terror and most importantly, the most horrific monsters and creatures Manchester has ever seen.
