Belfast’s biggest and best Halloween event is back and is promising guests plenty of weird and wonderful action on Sunday 30 October at the Slipways, Titanic Belfast with a ‘movie blockbusters’ theme – and a cast of thousands!

Beginning at 4pm, the entertainment line-up will feature:

  • on stage – live music (The Unusual Suspects) and look-a-like ‘Harry’ and ‘Hagrid’ characters from Harry Potter
  • face painting
  • a range of hot food, drinks, sweets and Halloween tasty treats.

This year’s theme is ‘movie blockbusters’ and monsters and ghouls of all ages can come along in their show-stopping movie outfits or traditional spooky Halloween ones.

Alongside our media partner, Q Radio, the Q street team will be amongst the crowd to select the best fancy dress outfits on the night and there are some fangtastic prizes up for grabs.

The evening will draw to a cinematic finale with the largest fireworks display in the city, set to a movie blockbuster soundtrack with theme tunes including Mission Impossible, Star Wars, Flash Gordon, Jaws and Ghostbusters.
