What are you plans this Halloween weekend?
Just in case you haven't already guessed I will declare it…tricky customers LOVE Halloween! Yes it can be a little tacky, such as when it's used as an excuse for women to wear their kinkiest Ann Summers outfits outdoors, but generally it's a whole load of fun. Getting dressed up, carving a pumkin, knocking on doors, eating lots of sweets. Well, perhaps that last bit is for the under 10’s. We've already given you a few costume ideas but if you are still feeling a little bewildered about how to enjoy this spooky pagan festival we have pulled together a quick round up of some Halloween ideas and happenings this weekend...
Saturday 29 October - London
The Haggerston - She’ll Hurt You in the End
The Book Club – The Hideous…BIG TEN INCH Halloween Horror Show
The Macbeth -Whoopi Golberg’s Halloween Frat Party
Bethnal GreenWorking Men’s Club - BGWMC's Haunted House Party!
…and tomorrow in Manchester (Friday 28 October 2011)…
Star and Garter – Burlesque: Halloween Special
This list is far from comprehensive as sadly we can’t list all the stuff happening everywhere in the country or the world – will leave that endeavour to the chaps at Time Out. These are just a selection that have taken our fancy. Feel free to tell us about other events and we’d love to hear about what you’re up to this weekend???
Other Halloween stuff to do includes…
DIY ideas...Halloween house parties are the bees knees so why not try to wangle an invite or better still throw one your self. If you fancy a more subdued affair why not host a Halloween Film Night where you can munch on Halloween treats and pumpkin pie.
There are also lots of spooky Halloween film screenings around the country. Back to back horror in a church anyone?
If you have small people around, whether yours or some else’s (ask permission though) then you have the perfect excuse to go trick or treating, unless you live in a dubious area that is. Halloween may be about getting scared but safety is still important folks.
Failing being able to do any of the aforementioned you could just dress your cat up and watch a spooky film together.
Now, you have no excuse for not celebrating Halloween. Carve that pumpkin, have fun and don’t get too scared!
