Spooky City

Thursday 31 October, 5:50pm to 8pm


This eerie evening promises an array of family friendly activities paying homage to some of Tim Burton’s creepiest creations with:

  • a special viewing of ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ at 4:30pm at Cinema City, to get you in the mood for make-believe
  • stilt walkers, giant puppets and characters parading around the city

5:50pm - Performances from The Garage at Millennium Plain, before creeping around the city

6pm - Parade leaves Millennium Plain for Chapelfield Gardens via St Peters Street, Gaol Hill, Gentleman’s Walk and Theatre Street

6pm - Chapelfield Gardens will be transformed into ‘Halloween Town’ with a host of weird and wonderful sights and entertainment.

  • Music from local band, Blood Shake Chorus followed by spook-tacular performances from Lost in Translation circus and The Garage.
  • Warm snacks from our ‘Truck or Treat’ street food providers and cast a spell in a real cauldron.
