Photo Gallery: Halloweekend & Filthy Luker art installation, Manchester
Northern Soul photographer Drew Wilby heads to Manchester city centre to celebrate the spookiest time of year. Following on from the success of last year’s event, Manchester BID – the city’s Business Improvement District – hosted a spooky weekend chock full of tricks and treats.
We couldn’t miss Monster Attack, an inflatable monster installation from artist Filthy Luker, which invaded Deansgate’s House of Fraser store with its 10-metre long green tentacles.
The free two-day family-friendly Halloween Festival also featured a haunted maze, trick or treat trail, creepy carnival, pop-up cinema, goth catwalk show, face painting zone and a huge family fancy dress-up.
