The Kingfisher in Butt Lane is hosting a spooktacular party in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and staff have gone all out with their decorations, with creepy characters lurking in corners, ghosts hanging from the ceiling and nightmarish scenes adorning every wall.

Owner Paul Southey said it took a team of three people three weeks to decorate the bar, inside and out, and staff are expecting a large turn out for the evening, which has become a popular annual event.

The 47-year-old said: “We built all the scenes out of wood and we’ve worked down the bar and towards the restaurant end.

“When people come in they’re amazed by it and year on year we get more and more people. And nearly everybody comes dressed up and we put pumpkins out on the tables that they take away.”

An entertainer runs activities for youngsters, including games and a fancy dress competition, before live music keeps the party going until late.

Paul and his wife Pauline have been running the Halloween nights for the last eight years and have raised thousands of pounds for the charity with the popular night, and annual Christmas activities.
