Join HAUNT Manchester this Halloween at Rochdale Town Hall.

HAUNT Manchester are a group of ‘spooky’ researchers at Manchester Metropolitan University who will be hosting this event at the neo-Gothic masterpiece Rochdale Town Hall for an afternoon of talks followed by a tour of the Town Hall itself.

We will talk about ghosts, about why they scare and intrigue us in equal measure, and about Rochdale’s own mysterious legends.

Come along and join in, ask us questions, and share your own spooky stories. And please, do wear fancy dress!

Recommended for adults and children aged 12+.


Talks 4pm – 6pm
Tour 6pm – 7pm
