Halloween in Sheffield 2018

Love it or loathe it, there’s no denying it, Halloween is now well and truly a celebration for the UK.  Not so long ago it was mainly an American phenomenon, one we would witness on films and T.V shows.  Depending upon our age and attitudes at the time we would either long to be part of the huge furore that our cousins over the pond would be making, or we would be glad that we were not plagued by pesky kids knocking on our doors for ‘candy’ and pumpkins littering the neighbourhood.

Now it would seem that we have taken the American ideas of Halloween and ran with it.  Shops are adorned with Halloween paraphernalia, pumpkins seem to be everywhere and even bars and clubs are advertising ghoulish party nights.

This year Halloween falls in half term, which for those parents who are constantly trying to find things to entertain the kids when they’re not at school, could prove fortuitous.  Sheffield has a wealth of activities for the little ones with a spooky theme over the coming week.  We’ve gathered a few to help with the search.  You’re welcome.
