The historic house in Finchfield Road is holding the outdoor event. It will also feature opera singers, a puppet theatre and living statues.

It is being run by City of Wolverhampton Council in partnership with LSD Promotions Marketplace Ltd and will take place between 11am and 6pm.

Candle bulbs will light the stalls in the hours of darkness to set the atmosphere for hi-jinks and spooks.

Craft ales, artisan food, cool junk and rare finds, homespun quirky crafts, potions and even spells are also part of the festival.

Councillor John Reynolds, City of Wolverhampton Council Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "This is the first All Hallows' Eve event of its kind at Bantock. The gardens and courtyard are the perfect setting for it, especially as the clocks go back giving us an extra hour to enjoy the festival."

Linda McGillicuddy, LSD Promotions director, added: "We're hoping people coming along will get into the All Hallows' Eve spirit and dress up to suit the mood, especially as the late autumn light fades and the market is lit with candle bulbs to create a haunting atmosphere."
