The Verbal Arts Centre, Eason and Foyleside will be transformed into one mammoth crime scene for their Killer Books Festival as part of Derry’s Hallowe’en celebrations this year.

The festival, which will run from Thursday October 30 to Saturday November 1 will bring a wide array of activities and events for all ages packed with crime and mystery.

On Thursday October 30 the Verbal Arts Centre and Foyleside will become a terrifying crime scene where budding CSI detectives will work to solve a mystery, examining fingerprints and other exciting evidence like real scientific investigators, where families will help the PSNI to resolve the mystery examining up fingerprints and other evidences like real scientific investigators.

Even the Verbal Arts Centre’s Reading Rooms will get scary, with special Hallowe’en sessions that will give goose bumps to the whole family.

On the Friday and Saturday, Foyleside will be the scene of spooky storytelling for all ages, interactive crime fighting, mask and face painting workshops for children to turn into little monsters. Mini sleuths will have the chance to solve the crime and mystery in the Verbal Crime lab as well as find the hidden treasure following clues given by the ‘Killer Books’ characters found around Foyleside Shopping Centre.
