The spookiest night of the year is almost upon us and this Halloween Blackpool North Pier is inviting goblins, ghouls, ghosts, and their families, to enjoy five fright-filled evenings of free entertainment in the Creepy Carousel.

The family-friendly Carousel Bar is being transformed for five evenings with the return of the pier’s Halloween-Fest.

The fun and games start each evening at 7pm on Scary Saturday, Spooky Sunday, Monster Monday, Terrifying Tuesday and Wicked Wednesday – Halloween Night itself (31st October).

There will be traditional Halloween games including apple bobbing and pin the nose on the witch, along with singing, dancing, karaoke and competitions with prizes each evening plus a nightly fancy dress competition.

Resident entertainers Chipper and Cherry the Squirrels will be performing their special Halloween show along with cabaret entertainers Déjà Vu.

There will be also be a free buffet for children on Halloween Night.

It’s business as usual on the pier for half term too.

Peter Pan is flying back into the theatre at 1pm from Saturday to Wednesday and again on Saturday November 3 in a repeat of the fully staged summer musical pantomime which proved a success.

Tickets are £10 each, with special discounted tickets for families of three (£25) and four (£30). Group discounts are also available. Call the box office on 01253 623304 or visit for details and online booking.

Cabaret duo Déjà Vu will be keeping families entertained in the Carousel Family Bar from noon at weekends and from 7pm on week nights.
