The people of Nottingham are being given the opportunity to experience the scariest Halloween this year as Old Market Scare, brought to the city by the Mellors Group in partnership with Nottingham City Council opens in Nottingham.
The Halloween-themed family fun runs until Thursday 31 October and new for this year is Horror Hotel, a live scare maze in the style of a haunted Victorian hotel.
Actors, dressed as spooky characters including hotel proprietor Vincent Ravenghast and other members of his family, provide the shocks and surprises as people navigate their way around the creepy old hotel.
The UK’s biggest mobile ghost train is back to provide the thrills and there is a range of spooktacular family rides and attractions for younger Halloween fans too.
Around a huge lit-up Halloween pumpkin, there are various food stalls and a themed bar for people to enjoy a witch’s brew (other drinks are available).
The activities are being organised by the Mellors Group, organisers of Nottingham Beach, Playa Day Club & Restaurant and Winter Wonderland.
Edward Mellors, a director of the Mellors Group said; “It’s great to be part of Old Market Scare again. With this year’s event being even bigger and scarier than ever before, there should be something for everyone. We hope that everyone enjoys it.”
Cllr Dave Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture at Nottingham City Council said: “We are again looking forward to celebrating Halloween in the city in style this year and the addition of the Live Action Scare Maze is another reason to prepare to be scared! There is something for everybody of all ages, for people who love spooks and scares to those that like to watch and to enjoy the spectacle. There is lots of family friendly fun. Get yourself down to Old Market Scare and have a spine-tingling time!
On Halloween night itself, there will also be live entertainment and costumed characters around the city centre from 6.00pm to 9.00pm.
