A series of ghostly goings on are expected at Doncaster Markets as part of a spooktacular extravaganza to celebrate Halloween.

From noon on Saturday, October 31, there will be a fancy dress competition with prizes for the following age groups:- 0–5 years, 6–11 years and 12 years and over.

Between 12.30pm and 2pm shoppers will be able to have a go at carving a pumpkin and take part in a skeleton hunt.

Councillor Bill Mordue, cabinet member for business at Doncaster Council, said: “Doncaster Markets have everything you need for Halloween - from pumpkins to fancy dress to sweets for trick-or-treaters.

“This looks set to be a great event and I would encourage families to come along and enjoy the fun.”
