Halloween Haunts

By Drake & Morgan
On 12th October 2016

Fright night is coming soon, and there are some serious tricks and treats in store for you from gruesome feasts in secret locations to spooky family adventures & an all-night dance fest. We’re not kidding when we say there’s something for everyone.

Champagne Celebrations


Champagne & Shameless Sins at C&B Monument

The 150th anniversary since Widow Clicquot’s death has provided us with the perfect excuse for a Champagne-filled Halloween party. C&B Monument will be providing all the entertainment you’ll need on your Saturday night – arrive to a glass of Veuve Clicquot, a lace mask and a prize envelope and look out for other tricks & treats throughout the night. Doors open at 8.30pm and you can dance on through the night to the DJ until 2am. Dress code is wicked elegance and tickets are £12 and include all the above – get yours here.

Family Friendly


Hair Raising Halloween in the Park

From 11am – 3pm on Wednesday 26th October, the Education Centre in Hyde Park are putting on quite an event for the kids. From creating magical potions and bat masks to exploring the ‘witches den’ whilst learning some interesting facts along the way, this is a tick-every box kinda Halloween…and it’s free. Find out all the details right here.


Halloween Horrors at Brixton Windmill

For a more traditional take on Halloween, head to Brixton Windmill with the kids on Sunday 30th October, for spooky story-telling, face painting and pumpkin carving. There’s something in it for the adults too however – turning 200 years old this year, the windmill is quite something to behold. The event takes place between 2pm – 5pm and is free, but you must bring your own pumpkin to carve.

Fearsome Feasts


The Spooky Pineapple at a Secret Location

Swapping the usual Halloween ritual of carving pumpkins in favour of carving pineapples, Christbel’s dinner is a fabulous celebration that turns Halloween on its head. Expect the unexpected is the vibe for this dinner party, demonstrated first and foremost by the fact that guests aren’t to the location until 3 days prior to the event – all we know is that it will be located in a N1 postcode. On Monday 31st October, for £45, you can slurp on a bloody cocktail and tuck into a 3 course dinner that includes black slugs (black ink squid spaghetti) and there’s no need to worry about pricey alcohol as its BYOB for the rest.

Halloween at The Diner

For a more laid back Halloween feast but one that still gets into the spooky spirit, Halloween at The Diner is the answer. Stuff yourself filly with Deadman’s fingers (mozzarella sticks with vampire mayo), the Shot Through the Heart burger and a Pumpkin Oreo shake. The special menu will be available at all branches of The Diner between 28th and 31st October, simple as that.

Not for the Faint-Hearted


Republic Artists meets Leading Astray: Halloween Boat Party

Egg London never fail to put on a cracking party, and Halloween is one of their favourite times of year – you’ll be glad to hear that 2016 is no different. This one’s a real treat, however, as Egg London is just the after party….head to the Temple Pier on Saturday 29th October from 6pm to start your 16-hour musical journey on the Golden Flame boat before boogying on down at Egg London from 11pm. Tickets for the whole shebang will cost you a mere £22. All tickets include pre event drinks at Bar & Co. Click here for details on the music and to buy tickets.
