What's On! 25th October in Penrith! 2014

BlueJam Arts organised the Halloween Festival for Eden Council last year (2014) and it was a great success.

This was the first festival we have organised and we learnt a lot, very quickly! Everyone was helpful and the atmosphere among the organising team and on the day was friendly and cooperative. Looking forward to the next one!


Fun for all the family with workshops, stalls, competitions and the fantastic Phantom Parade!

Come all dressed up in your Halloween finery!

Workshops and activities take place in the Library and Devonshire Arcade, with music and judging happening in the Bandstand and the ghost trail with participating shops.

There will be stalls by the Clocktower and Bandstand with hot food, displays and entertainment.

PLUS..children from local schools and nurseries have been busy making ghosts – join the Ghost Trail round town and see how many you can find in the town centre shops!
