Halloween events in Preston 2020: spooky activities near me - from pumpkin picking and walks to ghost tours
Halloween is set to be a little different this year in Preston, particularly with bans on community events including trick or treating in place.
The Tier 3 rules in Lancashire currently restrict the mixing of households indoors and outdoors in hospitality settings or private gardens, as well as restricting meetings in outdoor spaces to six.
But don't worry, there are still plenty of ways to safely enjoy Halloween as we creep ever closer to the spookiest day of the year.
Here are the Halloween events near you - including pumpkin picking, spooktacular walks and ghostly tours - if you have an event planned and would like it featuring email [email protected]:
