Parties

Itching to dazzle the crowd with the only dance routine you know off by heart? Your Michael Jackson Thriller performance will be looked on with much enthusiasm where ever you go but mostly at The Old Queens Head where they are holding a Thriller themed night. Drive down to IndigO2 in your car hire to attend a Halloween Circus complete with spooky clowns, bendy ballerinas and lightbulb eating. If you prefer to dine Slaughterhouse Supper Club is hosting a four course themed dinner accompanied by gruesome wines and cocktails. Alternatively, become a Pirate of the River Thames with 400 others on this party boat voyage.

Theatre

The classic Phantom of the Opera could stand alone as the panicle of Halloween theatre since it never gets old. We all know what is going to happen next but it somehow manages to scare us out of our skin anyway. For a thought provoking murder mystery book tickets to see Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap. You don’t need reminding that Halloween is not complete without some element of illusion and it doesn’t get any better than The Woman in Black. This terrifying stage adaptation of Susan Hill’s intense horror will have you double checking the lights when you return you your hotel just to make sure that lampshade is not a ghost. The faint hearted are advised to see light hearted musical Wicked which is a box office hit in London.

 

Haunted Pubs

Legend has it that in the eighteenth century a coach driven by a ghostly figure hauled by four horses pulled up to a public house, hence the name Coach & Four Horses. The closer it drew the more it appeared that the driver was headless, pay a visit if you dare! For an equality chilling night, don’t miss the opportunity to sip a pint at Jack the Ripper’s well-known local The Ten Bells. Meanwhile, Morpeth Arms and The Rising Sun where the body snatchers would recreate are just a couple of drinking spots famed for paranormal activity.
