EVERY STOP IS A SCARE
Strange happenings are afoot this Halloween at ELR... Rumour has it that there have been recent sightings of the notorious - “Irwell Grimm” who's been spooking the staff and locals along the track of ELR.
Are you BRAVE ENOUGH to join up with the Monster Squad and investigate this mystery? To add to the fun this year we have a socially distanced meet and greet with some FANTASTIC spooky Halloween characters who will be happy to share their terrifying tales of the “Grimm”- and maybe pose for a selfie or two as well!
Enjoy a terrifying train ride from Bury to Irwell Vale and back. The return journey takes approximately 65 minutes.
Get a chance to have spooky, socially distanced meet and greet with our very own Monster Squad as they tell the gripping and ghoulish tale of the "Grimm", be sure to get some spine-tingling selfies.
Show off your spooky side and make the most of your masks with thrilling fancy dress. Will you be a PPE wearing poltergeist or a face masked Frankenstein?
WILL ENTERTAINMENT BE DIFFERENT?
As we strive to deliver a spooktacular experience, the Halloween entertainment offering will be different than in previous years due to COVID related government guidelines on performances. We will comply with these fully and therefore the locations of the entertainment offered may be different than in previous years. There will be more station based interaction than onboard the train itself. Please arrive in plenty of time to enjoy the station and meet and greet opportunities prior to boarding.
Our show is opening in line with all Covid and Social Distancing measure and has been awarded a "Good to Go!" Mark from Visit England.
Gandeys Circus was the first circus to decide to close, prior to government directive to do so. We were the first to reopen in July at Butlins following strict covid protocols which Gandeys worked with the U.K. government (D.C.M.S. ). Tests on airflow and ventilation were carried out and enabled circus to reopen ahead of indoor venues. For more information on our covid measures and response please Click Here
