City set to get spooky

Published on Tuesday, 10th October 2017

This All Hallows’ Eve promises to be frighteningly fun for all as Norwich is set to once again host its Spooky City event in the city centre and Chapelfield Gardens.

Dress up in your creepiest costumes and join us, if you dare from 6pm outside The Forum <Tuesday 31 October>. There you’ll be (trick and) treated to eerie entertainment.

Join the petrifying parade when it leaves at 6:30pm.

New parade route

The parade this year will start at Millennium Plain at 6:30pm and end at Chapelfield Gardens

On leaving Millennium Plain it will go along St Peters Street, down Gaol Hill, along the front of the market along Gentlemen's Walk, then up Theatre Street to Chapelfield Gardens. Who knows what sinister sights you may encounter along the way, as stilt walkers and street performers creep about the city?

Chapelfield Gardens

The park will be bustling with ghoulish goings on – music, stilt walkers and a fire show; plenty of tricks along with heaps of treats.

Councillor Alan Waters, leader of Norwich City Council said:
“Spooky City is yet another highlight in the city’s jam-packed events calendar.

This event, now in its fifth year, gets more popular each time, with more and more people getting into the ‘spirit’.

Our thanks go to all the partners and performers who are working with us to put on this excellent entertainment.”
