More night events to come at Watford Market after success of first two ‘Market Lates’

Ghosts, ghouls and all manner of spooky spirits feasted on Halloween inspired food and listened to local musicians, all under festoon and lanterns at Watford Market’s recent night event ‘Halloween Market Lates’ last week (29 October).

The event organised by Watford Borough Council and Market Asset Management, was attended by over 600 people, including Watford FC legend Luther Blissett. It was full of spooktacular tricks, treats and scarily good street food, with frightening creatures of the night eating, drinking and enjoying the fun photo opportunities. Market visitors also enjoyed live entertainment from local and national performers including Declan Zapala, Louis Antoniou and The Locals.

The Halloween Spooktacular was the second of the ‘Market Lates’ series, and the team are now planning the next event on 3 December for Christmas. For those looking to get into the festive spirit, visitors will be able to enjoy an eclectic mix of yuletide food, drinks and goods, from mulled wine, minced pies and decorations.

Declan Zapala, who performed at Market Lates said: “I had such a fun time playing Market Lates. It’s is a gem of a night in the heart of Watford High Street with great vibes, great food and drink and really great music! My new favourite spot in Watford!”
