A chance to get out of the house and enjoy Halloween in a safe and controlled environment with your household family.

Aycliffe Radio, ROF59 Activity Centre and Shake ‘n’ Cake have been working over the summer months to bring a bit of enjoyment to the residents of Newton Aycliffe and will finish off this year’s events with a ‘Family Halloween Drive In Music Festival’ at ROF59 rear field on Saturday 31st October between 5.00pm and 9.00pm.

The evening will include a live show from fantastic duo “Amazing Live” and music from Aycliffe Radio presenters who will be playing popular Halloween songs as well as music from various genre’s. Local performer, Rhian, will also be coming along to perform her stilt walking and fire breathing acts.

The evening will also feature a fancy dress competition for both the children and adults, with various prizes to be won for different age groups and all children (under 16) will receive a ‘trick or treat’ goodie bag, as well as a foam glow stick, all courtesy of event sponsors Shake ‘n’ Cake.

The Drive In events this year have all been fantastic, with near sell out crowds, and all profits helping to raise money for local charities. The Halloween evening on Saturday 31st October will be our last one for this year, but we do hope to continue these next year with more great acts and performers coming your way.
