It is time to launch our annual ‘Spook up your Business’ competition! Each year we ask businesses to get involved with Southport Halloween Festival by dressing up their shop and office windows as spookily as they can!

Dress your window up and send us in the pictures, we will share them on social and the business who receives the most likes wins £250 for the charity of their choice. Get dressing those shop fronts and send them in. Closing date is the 31st October and the winner will be announced the following Monday.

Please DM entries on social or email us them in! If you have any Halloween events or offers to share please send them in and we can add them to our dedicated website and share on social to over 10,000 followers. See some of our previous years spooky businesses:

This Halloween, we will be creating a purpose built, hyper real haunted Victorian street will be created in the town centre. Visitors and families will be able to wander past rickety fences and up the gothic steps to knock on life size doors and windows. Behind each, a character will be lying in wait to either offer up a treat or to trick Halloween loving visitors.

This is the fifth year for our annual Halloween Festival, Spooky Southport. Last year’s haunted maze and Halloween themed pop up performances saw thousand’s visit the town centre over the half term to enjoy the interactive events on offer. The four day festival will see a few extra pop up surprises along the way with great events and offers put on by businesses throughout the town centre. Businesses are welcome to submit their events, offers and promotions for the half term week to be promoted free on the festival’s social media channels. With over 10,000 followers, the festival regularly reaches up to half a million people, with visitors from throughout the region excited for the event.
