From fireworks displays, spooky storytelling and even an exhibition on Ireland’s last witch trial, check out our list for the best Halloween happenings across Mid and East Antrim.
9. Islandmagee Witches exhibition - Carrickfergus Museum
The story of the last witch trial in Ireland is being brought to life this autumn thanks to a new exhibition at Carrickfergus Museum. ‘Reimagining the Islandmagee Witches: an Interactive Exhibition’ utilises audio-visual and interpretative elements to tell the story of the 1711 trial of the Islandmagee witches in the east Antrim town. They include a virtual reality experience, animation, a graphic novel, and a choice-driven video game, alongside a number of historical objects, maps, and written accounts. The exhibition runs until November 16. Photo: Mid and East Antrim Borough Council
