Ghouls and boys across Kettering and the surrounding area will have a frighteningly spooky half term with a series of free Halloween fun events in the town and surrounding villages.

Showpiece of the week will see Kettering Market Place will be transformed on Wednesday (October 27), as families are invited to come along in your best scary outfits and celebrate in a spooky style, with a fantastic day of free activities for the whole family.

North Northamptonshire Council (NNC) will host the spine-tingling event from 10am to 3pm and anyone attending will be able to enjoy face painting, a ghost train, Circus of Horrors entertainment, crafts, musical games and much, much more.
