Halloween is the most frightful time of the year and it commands some spookiness. While carving out a terrifying face in a pumpkin, apple bobbing and telling ghost stories are perfectly traditional ways to celebrate the centuries-old season, there is something extra special coming to Derry.

St Columb’s Cathedral is set to host this captivating concert. From The Exorcist‘s Tubular Bells to the theme from The Addams Family, a talented string quartet will reimagine ominous melodies surrounded by the atmospheric glow of hundreds of flickering candles.
