On Monday and Tuesday the Awakening the Walls event brought Derry’s city centre to a standstill as revellers embarked on the ultimate haunted Hallowe’en trail.

The event continues tonight from 6pm until 8.30pm with a dazzling display of installations and animation lighting up the City’s historic ramparts and the city centre.

Greater Shantallow Community Arts meanwhile will continue to present their Village of the Damned in the Craft Village from 6pm to 8.30pm this evening.
