SBOOKY Halloween Festival was the scariest Halloween book-themed festival taking place this year! The Verbal Arts Centre, Eason and Foyleside was transformed and filled with treats and horrors to suit all ages as part of this family fun programme over the Halloween holidays.
Taken place over October 28–31, Foyleside played host to some of Halloween’s most famous characters at the annual book-themed festival, and children of all ages coming along in costume and joining in the fun. The spook-tacular Little Legends Reading Rooms ran every day, which featured some favourite children’s stories, with the notorious Book Burglar back and hidden in some of the centre’s top retailers.
Here’s some pictures from the scary adventures at Foyleside, involving make-up, masks, costumes, a LOT of tissue roll, and of course, plenty of books and reading.
