This October, the Grand Pier will be opening its doors after dark for the return of the terrifying halloween event; Halloween Unfairground.

With brand new scare zones, rides and bars, the event promises to be bigger and better than ever!

The event will consist of live scare zones, as well as access to all the rides and attractions, and some additional surprises along the way.

Live Scare Zones

House of Murders

Enter the lair of the infamous ‘Seaside Slayer’. No one knows how many tourists he has tortured and killed, but maybe you could work it out if you stopped to count the pieces of his victims he keeps as trophies…

But don’t linger too long. You’re caught in his twisted game now – try not to scream, he’ll only find you faster.

Not all who go in will make it out in one piece…


Freak Show

This used to be The Greatest Show on Earth…

The disturbed and dangerous characters of the Freak Show have taken back control of their derelict sideshow. Wild and losing their humanity, you’re in their world now…


Dead End

You don’t know who put the bag over your head. You don’t know where you’re going. You don’t know why they’ve taken you. All you know is you’re in danger.

It’s cold and damp and there are strange sounds all around. You can’t see a thing, so you’ll have to use your other senses if you want to escape…


Crazy Circus

A night at the circus has taken a terrifying turn as killer clowns the Big Top. You won’t be laughing when they come for you…


House of Horrors ALIVE!

Climb aboard the Ghost Train and be transported to a world of darkness where things really do go bump in the night. All manner of ghouls, zombies and creatures of the night are lurking in the black around every corner – will everyone who boards get off again at the other end?


The Unfairground

A travelling troupe of sideshow novelties has descended into madness and mayhem…

A Punch & Judy show where the slapstick violence refuses to be contained, a Living Doll whose porcelain features hide a soul trapped in an eternal torment, and a sinister Ringmaster who has them all under his spell…
