Derry Hallowe’en 2020 will be a year like no other…

This year, Derry Halloween will be different.          

We’ve been bubbling away, brewing up a brilliant festival for you to enjoy.

But while we normally flock to the streets to show why Derry does it best, this year we are asking you to stay home, stay safe and enjoy our digital programme of events from the comfort of your sofa (or behind it!).

We’ll have spooky tales for your Little Horrors to watch, Samhain Sessions for music lovers, and online tutorials in everything from broomstick-making to cocktail-shaking. We’ll also be bringing some ghostly friends back to life to share the story of Samhain for this year’s Awakening.

And it wouldn’t be Derry Halloween without some out-of-this-world fancy dress – so enjoy our virtual workshops, share your costumes with us on social media, and keep the creative juices flowing for 2021!

We might not be there in person this Halloween, but we CAN be there in spirit to show the world why, even in these challenging times, no one does it like Derry.
