Open weekend – Little Workshop of Horrors
During Halloween 2018, Cobden Works hosted an Open Weekend of frighteningly fun activities to do and see, as well as giving opportunity to meet the wicked folk at Walk the Plank.
Revolting Delores on our bad Makeup counter brought haunting years to your looks and and gave you smouldering eyes. More mould than smould, but you get the idea.
Poisoned Ivy of Curl Up & Dye provided the ugliest back comb in town, while Ivor Globule in our staff canteen made gunk juice and bile burgers.
Professor D Zaster gave a shaky hand (what's left of it) with yet another slimy experiment. So horrifying that it was all free.
Also, on Saturday night people joined us for the Ghouls Paradise cabaret taking place from 7.30pm. Featuring live music, performance, drag act, spooky joke competition and the Mean Biziness 10-piece soul band. All the Cabaret donations made from the show were put towards the re-build of our fire-damaged workshop.
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.
