A County Durham town will be the setting for some spooky fun and ghostly goings-on this weekend. Bishop Auckland’s Halloween Horrors event on Saturday 30th October will see scary characters wandering the streets and ghoulish music wafting over shoppers’ heads.

The activities, in Fore Bondgate and the pedestrian area of Newgate Street, will also see traders decorating their stores in a suitably spooky style.

Activities will take place between 11.30am and 3.30pm.

Steve McCormick, Bishop Auckland town centre manager, said: “This weekend’s event aims to capture the scary fun of Halloween. There’ll be some creepy music and ghoulish activities for all the family, so I’d encourage people to come along and get involved.

“It’s our first ever Halloween-themed event but is part of an ever-growing calendar of street entertainment designed to attract shoppers to the town.”
