The Fangtastic Monster March

Witches, warlocks, ghoulies, ghosties - what will you be on our Monster March?


The nights are drawing in, that Autumn nip is in the air, and it’s the time when our children are deciding whether they’ll be a witch, a vampire, a ghoulie or a ghostie for Hallowe’en.A great place to show off their costumes this year will be on the Willow Wood Monster March and VIP Party – there are even cash prizes for the best dressed!

Starting at Dukinfield Town Hall on the afternoon of Sunday 29 October, there is a 5k sponsored walk setting off at 5pm, and every participant will receive a medal when they arrive back at the Town Hall.

There’s the chance to carry on the fangtastic fun at the VIP party in the Jubilee Suite which will look suitably spooky as it is being dressed by Monster March sponsors, Rumour Entertainments.You’ll be able to dance to a mix of all the Hallowe’en classics like the Monster Mash, Time Warp, Ghostbusters, Werewolves of London and, of course, Michael Jackson’s Thriller, plus all the latest hits from local DJ Chris G.

Shop 4 Fancy Dress, based on Croft Street in Hyde are offering 10% discount on all Hallowe’en costumes for those entered in the Monster March.Event organiser Chris said “It’s a great offer, they have some fantastic costumes available.Our thanks to them and to all our sponsors.

“Of course, if you’re handy with a needle why not visit your local Willow Wood shop?They have all kinds of pre-loved clothes which you could customise so that you have a totally unique outfit.”

There’s even a two course supper included!You’ll have worked up an appetite on the sponsored walk and a delicious warming hot pot (or veggie alternative) plus dessert will be very welcome.

Chris said “It’s a great event for families or for groups of friends and I can’t wait to see everyone in their Hallowe’en finery.We do have to limit the party numbers to 250, so please book as soon as possible to be sure of a spooktacular time!It’s easy to register, you can go online to or pick up one of the forms from any of our shops or Willow Wood reception.Alternatively, ring 0161 330 7788 and we can take details and payment over the phone”.
