AS Hallowe'en fast approaches many people across the county will be preparing for the big night.

Making sure there they are stocked up on candy and sorted their costume out.

Hexham will also prepare for the town's annual Spook Night which sees thousands of tourists descend on the area.

This will be the first time that the event has took place since the pandemic.

Spook Night will return on October 30 between 2pm and 9pm, around Beaumont Street, Market Place and the Abbey Grounds.

Here at the Courant, we have looked back through our archives to the last Spook Night in 2019 and found some scary pictures of how the town prepared itself for a nigh of horror.

We would love to know your memories of Halloween in the years gone by? What do you love about Halloween?
