Set reminder for market event

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, with attendees 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. 

Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor, said: “After the success of the first event, lots of people have been asking me when will this be happening again and I am thrilled to announce the date of the ‘Halloween Market Lates Special’ on 29 October, which is the next in a line of exciting events, laid on by the council and Market Asset Management, for Watford Market. We cannot wait to put on this event to give residents an exciting Halloween experience whilst celebrating what our market has to offer.”

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.
