Romford Market hosts a free event to celebrate Halloween, featuring creepy characters, illusions, arts and crafts and entertainment, including performances of young people dancing to Halloween hits.

Taking place on Saturday 26 October from 11am – 4pm, the free, family-friendly experience is the next in a series of events in Romford Market.

Highlights of this year’s entertainment includes The Vortex Tunnel, a mind blowing walkthrough illusion that’s guaranteed to test your senses, and the Ghost Train, which will be offering scares and thrills for those who dare to climb aboard.

There’s also a whole range of free arts & crafts activities on offer, with slime workshops, pumpkin decorating, and ghoulish face painting for children.

Time 107.5FM will be on hand to provide the soundtrack to the day, playing non-stop fang-tastic tunes.

Jam Dance Company and Razzamatazz Theatre Group Hornchurch will be bringing a cast of young people dancing to Halloween hits.

Councillor Damian White, Leader of Havering Council, said:

"This is the next in a line of exciting events, laid on by the Council, for Romford Market.

"Romford Market is at the heart of our community, and we cannot wait to put on this event to give residents of all ages an exciting Halloween experience whilst celebrating what our fantastic market has to offer."
