Romford Market will host a free event to celebrate Halloween, featuring creepy characters, illusions, arts & crafts and entertainment – including performances from a cast of young people dancing to Halloween hits, courtesy of Jam Dance Company and Razzamatazz Theatre Group Hornchurch.

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.
