The leaves have started falling, the mornings are feeling crisp and the nights are getting darker. That means that we’re fast approaching a new season with lots of great events around our city.

Join in the FREE spooky spectacular entertainment, games, workshops and walk-about characters from 11am – 4pm ~ it will get you into the Halloween mood.
Come dressed in your creepy costumes; take part in the spooks in the city trail where you could win some goodies thanks to Brace’s Bakery and make sure to join in the pumpkin parade at 3pm – you’re sure to have a frightfully fun time.
This FREE event has fang-tastic offers of music, glitter tattoos, theatrical make-up, pumpkins, gory props for the best photo opportunities and craft workshops.
A hairy tale of a Princess, a Sultan and a Genie, a shipwreck and an unfortunate pirate who keeps getting transformed into a baboon! Join Grandma Dingley and BBC NOW at 3pm.
With Rimsky-Korsakov’s opulent, luscious and tempestuous Scheherazade providing the musical stage, the lovable, but slightly batty Grandma (you’ve been warned!!) will be on hand to guide you through the story, introduce you to the orchestra and even lead you in some interactive musical activities, perfect for the whole family.
