Fright Night is the UK's largest Halloween party, with over 31,000 visitors last year. It is held annually on the streets of Sheffield during the evening and is host to a number of attractions, including firewalkers, fire artists, jugglers, fairground rides, food stalls and more. But what is surely the main attraction are the public themselves who dress up in costume and makeup as their favourite spooky characters.
Despite having lived in Sheffield most of my life, I have to admit that I had never heard of Fright Night until this year, when I was invited by my sister (perhaps it started during the last five years I've worked elsewhere). As a result, I was ill-prepared for the evening - most of my shots of the public came out poor, hence the absence these photographs here. However, the photographs of the fire artists came out well.
The hearse limo shown currently belongs to Gothic Limousines and the owner was very friendly, allowing me to take photographs of the interior. The limo was actually used in a TV advert for Irn-Bru (see below). Next year, I plan to arrive earlier and capture more shots of the public in costume.
