Watford Market gearing up for Halloween Spooktacular event

Watford Market will be full of spooktacular tricks, treats and scarily good street food on Friday 29 October, as ‘Market Lates’ returns for Halloween and it’s shaping up to be downright disturbingly fun!

After the success of the first-ever night market event organised by Watford Borough Council and Market Asset Management in September, frightening creatures of the night are invited to eat, drink and be scary at the fa-boo-lous ‘Halloween Market Lates’ event from 5.30pm to 10pm on Friday 29 October.

The Friday night spooktacular will reveal the haunting familiarity of boo-tiful street food and amazing bars set in the shadows of Watford’s historic town centre. Market visitors will be able to have a fang-tastic night with live entertainment, fun photo opportunities and your favourite spooky vendors offering devilish dishes and ghoulish delights that will really shake the webs off your broomsticks.

The event will include craft beer, a wine bar and the market’s popular food stalls rustling up delicacies to delight your taste buds, including Caribbean, Asian and Korean street food.

Doing Halloween weekend in suitably spooky style, Watford Market will be getting dressed up to the nines. Attendees are encouraged to wear fancy dress so the market can be overcome with ghosts, ghouls and all manner of spooky spirits, feasting on Halloween inspired food and listening to local musicians, all under festoon and lanterns.

The first ‘Market Lates’ event in September was attended by over 600 people, with visitors enjoying the lively atmosphere and great music. Thanks to the success of the pilot event, the team are now organising a series of night markets over the next year, including the Christmas Special on the 3 December.
