Frightfully exciting events are heading to St Albans this Halloween.
St Albans BID has organised a Halloween trail with city centre businesses, hosting scary, COVID-safe fun for children.
Families can pick up a map from outside the BID office or Cositas Gifts to find out which outlets are putting on spooky displays.
Those who complete the trail will be entered into a prize draw.
Stores taking part in the ghoulish activity include Jojo Maman Bebe, Hotel Chocolat and Books on the Hill, and many more.
