Since launching in October last year, The Festival of The Dead has become a genuine craze all year round, having sold out shows in 10 cities all across the country. It is Manchester’s turn on Friday 27th October to host Chapter 2: ‘Limbo’.

Introducing a whole new range of colourful characters to entertain guests on a trip to party in purgatory, the deathly fiesta will see acrobats, circus performers, contortionists and fire breathers performing, complete with a quality soundtrack of house, bass and garage, make for an amazing night out.

It’s recommended you really get into the spirit, coming adorned in Mexican Day Of The Dead inspired costume with fantastic face paint (professional skull face-painting is also available on the night), as you get involved with dancers and beautiful decorative art & costumes.

Tickets for the night are available here:
