There is something spooky happening in Chester this October.

The Hospice of the Good Shepherd is launching the Chester Spook Walk 2016 - its first Hallowe’en event in association with Chester Racecourse.

The event is taking place on Sunday, October 30 between 5pm ­and 7.30pm at Chester Racecourse, and participants taking part will enjoy trick or treats, pumpkin carving, walking through gunge stations and many other ghostly surprises.

Chester Forget Me Not Walk will raise awareness of blood cancer

There will be two walks, one for under 10s and families who prefer a less scary walk which starts at 5pm and the second walk is for children aged over 10 and their families for a spookier walk starting at 6.30pm.

Entry is £7.50 per person and is suitable for all ages.

Events fundraising manager at the Hospice of the Good Shepherd, Stefan Robertson, said: “It’s a great time to offer the community of Chester a fun-filled event during the run up to Hallowe’en. Every year Hallowe’en is becoming bigger and bigger in this country. With a big thank you to Chester Racecourse we can organise something really special and spooky.”
