As the nights draw in and the cold mornings return, it’s time for the ghostly ghouls and wicked witches to emerge for the creepy Halloween season.
The supermarket shelves are piled high with outfits, decorations, and the perfect Halloween snacks – but this year’s Halloween festivities in Coventry may look a little different as event organisers respond to the Covid-19 restrictions and necessary safety precautions. However, we’ve found some spooky events for you to take part in that will give you that autumn feeling.
Look out; Monsters are invading Coventry city centre! Eight massive, mischievous monsters will be descending on Coventry and taking over rooftops in the city centre. This imaginative and colourful Monster trail is completely free of charge, and families are encouraged to take on the role of ‘Monster Detectives’. Their job is to search the city centre to see if they can find all the mischievous brutes, give them names and, if the detectives are brave enough, even take photos with the monsters. The Monster trail is open for eight days and nights, so grab your torch and adventure out into the dark to find the illuminated beasts.
