Still looking for some spooky plans for you and your family Halloween? Want to set alight that creative impulse in your children through a slightly more left field approach? This Oct 31, NOMA will be playing host to a number of Manchester’s most creative talents, where over three hundred pumpkins will be pushed beyond the threshold of recognition. The pumpkin itself will function as a launchpad at the event, where attendees can explore fine art, architecture, music, and horticulture. From noon on the big day, the venue will host an afternoon of workshops, food and pumpkin based fun; with One Dish Room chef Joe Whitmore cooking up a variety of dishes using pumpkins and pumpkin innards, Jesse Cracknell whipping out the power tools to do some intense pumpkin carving and Joe Hartley running a selection of spooky making events. As if that wasn’t enough, there will be a spooky soundtrack to compliment the event, to ensure the day will be a monster mash, and not absolute trash. The event is free, fancy dress is encouraged and there will be lots of refreshments for the little ‘uns. This year’s Pumpkinpalooza is sure to be a smash, so prepare yourself and your family to get creative with the spooky but lovable orange gourd as your canvas.
Thu 31 Oct, Noon - 8pm, NOMA, Old Bank Building, Hanover Street, Manchester, M4 4AH, Free
