Halloween fun set for Swansea city centre

Swansea city centre will be transformed into a spooky 'scareground' in the build-up to Halloween.


As part of the free Spooks in the City 2017 event on Saturday October 28, Castle Square and several city centre streets will play host to a number of spine-chilling events and activities.

Swansea Council is behind the fun, in partnership with the Mark Jermin Stage School. 

Lasting from 10.30am to 4pm, the event will include a live show featuring creepy characters, a junior jamboree and a crazy carnival parade.

Freaky face-painting will also be part of the fun, along with the chance to try circus skills like tightrope walking and plate-spinning.

Lisa Wells, from Swansea Council's city centre team, said: "Following on from similar events to mark Halloween in years gone by, Spooks in the City 2017 will transform Swansea city centre into a riot of colour, very much in keeping with the fun of the occasion.

"The free events and activities will have a family-friendly feel, also generating even more footfall and spending for our city centre traders.

"This is one of a number of events planned for the city centre in the build-up to Christmas as we look to boost vibrancy and attract residents and visitors to enjoy the city centre's rich variety of high street stores and independent retailers.

"Although fancy dress is optional, it would add to the occasion if as many people as possible join in the fancy dress fun on the day to help generate a terrific atmosphere."

Halloween treats available on the day will include creepy candy floss and terrifying toffee apples. A Zumba zombies activity has also been arranged, along with a fun event to find Swansea's strongest screamer.
