Families young and old are expected to descend on Nantwich Show Ground this weekend for the annual Nantwich Spooktacular.

The show features a funfair and 3,000-firework display at Dorfold Park.

Many get into the spirit by attending in Halloween fancy dress.

The event is billed by organisers as the North West’s largest Halloween-themed fireworks display.

It has been running for eight years and is organised by Blitz Fireworks with support of Nantwich Show organisers and Nantwich Agricultural Society.

As well as fireworks and funfair, there will be a fancy dress competition for adults and children, licensed bar, variety of food outlets, music and chat from The Shaun Simons Road show.

Tickets are available from Blitz Fireworks on Hightown, Crewe, Nantwich Tourist Information Office at the Civic Hall, and The Waterside Café at Nantwich Marina.

Ticket sellers will also be in Nantwich town square on the day of the event this Saturday October 28, from 10am until 3pm.

Advance tickets are £8 for a child and £10 for adult.

One the gate, it’s £10 entry per child and £12 per adult.
