In 2020 the world was brought to a halt, and the mere notion of crowds gathering was well eradicated. Throughout our series of podcast #LifeInLockdown, Headliners Foyle young people have been reflecting on the impact that the lockdown and the pandemic has had on various aspects of their city. Today, as Derry is back in lockdown, they picked up the podcast right where they had left it to examine the question of Hallowe'en.

Derry/Londonderry is the world capital city for Hallowe'en - no questions asked. Every year, hundreds of thousands of people travel the world to attend the week of festivities and the small, quiet Northern Irish town all of a sudden becomes a metropolis.

This year however, all this was expectedly cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic. With Hallowe'en now around the corner, Kieran and Milo reflect on the impact that this cancellation will have on the economy, the tourism industry and Derry people's mental health.

This podcast was produced by Headliners Foyle members Kieran Townley and Milo Quigley as part of our #LifeInLockdown series. It was made possible thanks to the ongoing support of The National Lottery Community Fund
