People are invited to dress up and watch the street theatre, and take part in Weston Museum’s trail around town.

The event will start at 4pm.

Halloween party on the pier

Join the Halloween-themed party on the Grand Pier on Saturday, where fancy dress is compulsory and hits such as Ghost Town and Ghostbusters will blare out from 8pm to kickstart the Halloween celebrations on the seafront.

Tickets are priced £7.50 and can be bought from the box office on 01934 646155.


The Grand Pier half marathon will begin on the seafront at 8am on Sunday morning, in association with Freak Events.

Now in its fourth year, the race will attract plenty of crowds, so go down and cheer on the brave runners.

If you still want to take part, race entry costs £27.50.


Get the family together and head down to Clarence Park on Saturday at 6pm for just £2 for the night of 1,000 lights.

The evening event will feature live music, bouncy castles, face-painting, fancy dress and a firework display, for those who want to celebrate Halloween in a more family-orientated environment.

Pub Quiz

If quizzing is your thing, head down to the Windsor Castle pub on Upper Bristol Road on Sunday.
