Open weekend – Little Workshop of Horrors

Date: 6 October 2018 to 7 October 2018

Location: Cobden Works, Salford

Want to look freakin' scary for Halloween?

Want to frighten your friends witless?

Fancy making some vile nibbles with our horribly bad non-celebrity chefs?

Then head down to Cobden Works and meet the wicked folk at Walk the Plank for an Open Weekend of frighteningly fun activities to do and see.

There's revolting Delores on our bad Makeup counter who will add haunting years to your looks and give you smouldering eyes.  More mould than smould, but you get the idea.

Poisoned Ivy of Curl Up & Dye will give you the ugliest back comb in town, while Ivor Globule in our staff canteen will be making gunk juice and bile burgers.

Watch Professor D Zaster try a shaky hand (what's left of it) with yet another slimy experiment.  Thr horrifying this is that it's free.

Also, on Saturday night join us for our Ghouls Paradise cabaret from 7.30pm featuring live music, performance, drag act, spooky joke competition and the Mean Biziness 10-piece soul band. Cabaret donations will go towards the re-build of our fire-damaged workshop.

Doors for the Fun Palace open from 2pm on Saturday and Sunday.  Close quicker than a tombstone door on Sunday at 6pm.  Cabaret is on for just the Saturday night only at 7.30pm with pay for bar.

Cobden Works' Little Workshop of Horrors is part of Fun Palaces, bringing culture to the heart of the community.  The Fun Palace is supported by the European Cultural Foundation as part of the Tandem Fryslan project and also supported with local funding from Salford City Council.
