Quarry Event Set to be Frightfully Good

A spooktacular Halloween market and funfair will return to Shrewsbury later this month.

The event, run by Asterley Events which also manages some of the popular markets in the town’s Square, will take place in the Quarry on October 25.

Visitors will be able to explore a variety of stalls selling local produce, food and gifts. There will also be fully licensed bar, provided by Tipples, a children’s entertainer and fairground attractions for all the family, provided by Stokes Funfairs.

The Mayor of Shrewsbury, Councillor Beverley Baker, will also judge a Halloween-themed fancy dress competition at 5pm in the event tepee.

The Halloween Funfair and Market will run from 12pm until 8pm and will culminate in a spectacular fireworks display at 8pm.

Mike Cox, Outdoor Recreation & Asset Manager for Shrewsbury Town Council added: “Following on from the success of the inaugural Halloween Funfair and Market last year we are pleased to welcome the event back for 2014. The organisers are promising a frightfully good event for all the family to enjoy.”

There are still limited stall spaces available for the Halloween event. For more information, or to secure a pitch, call 07789 114253.
