    Halloween is now one of the biggest events of the year so what better way to celebrate it than in Solihull town centre?

    We’ve got plenty of roaming street entertainment on hand to make sure your visit is one you won’t be forgetting in a hurry!

    If you ain’t afraid of no ghosts, you’ll be in good company as Ghostbusters characters will be joining us and bringing the famous Ghostbusters car with them.

    You can then watch on in amazement as Day of the Dead gliding characters entertain the crowds in Solihull.

    Zombie lovers, we’ve got something for you too! Zombie dancers are bringing a sense of the apocalypse to the town centre with free face painters also on hand to make children look extra scary! (Available on a first come, first served basis).

    Don’t forget to join our free VIP Kids Club whilst you’re here and collect a free Freddie Frankenstein keyring to add to your collection!

    All of our visitors will then join us for the Halloween Parade around the town centre at 3.30pm! This is the perfect time to show off those amazing costumes and help us create an eerily spooky atmosphere around Solihull! We can’t wait to see all of the amazing Halloween outfits following behind our hair-raising characters.

    The day doesn’t end there! Before and after the parade, we’ll have a Children’s Halloween Spooky Disco in Mell Square starting from 1pm so you can really make a day of it. Get into the spirit of Halloween and join us in the town centre for our amazing Spooktacular – free for all!
