The Festival running from Thursday October 30th to Saturday November 1st will bring a wide array of activities and events for all ages packed with crime and mystery.

On Thursday 30th the Verbal Arts Centre and Foyleside will become a terrifying crime scene where budding CSI detectives will work to solve a mystery, examining fingerprints and other exciting evidence like real scientific investigators, where families will help the PSNI to resolve the mystery examining up fingerprints and other evidences like real scientific investigators. Even the Verbal Arts Centre’s Reading Rooms will get scary, with special Halloween sessions that will give goose bumps to the whole family.

Friday and Saturday, Foyleside will be the scene of spooky storytelling for all ages, interactive crime fighting, mask and face painting workshops for children to turn into little monsters. Mini sleuths will have the chance to solve the crime and mystery in the Verbal Crime lab as well as find the hidden treasure following clues given by the killer books characters found around Foyleside Shopping Centre.
