A pub landlord has thrown down the gauntlet to other Wigan watering holes by turning his venue into a spectacular Halloween den of horror.
Chris Tolley, who took over The Wellfield Hotel in Beech Hill earlier this year, has created a spectacular spooky display based on comedy-horror movie Hocus Pocus.
The pub now has some new regulars in the shape of three witches sat around a cauldron, a giant spider and various other ghouls and ghosts.
Chris has also used technology to ensure some of the displays move and emit a range of spine-chilling noises.
The displays have already impressed and slightly terrified several people who have visited the pub, including local councillor Phyll Cullen.
Chris said: “We’ve gone all out. This is, 100 per cent, the best-dressed pub in Wigan.”
The Wellfield Hotel is staging Halloween parties for adults tonight and children on Sunday afternoon.
