As featured in the Liverpool Echo, this year’s Halloween Parade will be Katumba’s biggest ever!

Starting at 8pm in front of Soul Café (corner of Bold Street and Colquitt Street), the parade will create a truly magical environment resplendent with astounding puppetry, dazzling light effects and tribal drumming!

Winding its way through the city centre, the route will take in tourist haunts and less well-trodden streets alike:
