As we progress through October and everyone begins to dust off their Halloween costumes for another round of fancy dress capers and parties, this week we take a look at what wickedly fun Halloween events the capital has in store this year.
For those looking for something a little different to do with their kids this Halloween, the London Canal Museum is offering a Halloween themed narrowboat trip through the darkness of 191 year old Islington tunnel. Ghoulish decorations and staff in fancy dress should make it a boat trip to remember. Guests are also encouraged to dress up for the occasion.
Over near regent’s park meanwhile Alice Cooper and a host of other rockers will be taking over The Roundhouse on the 31st for the ‘Alice Cooper Night of Fear’. The event will not only be a rock gig of monstrous proportions , but will also feature a number of Halloween themed acts such as Jim Rose of the Jim Rose Circus freakshow.
At the Duke of York Theatre, Jeremy Dyson, of League of Gentleman fame, has collaborated with the co-creator of Derren Brown’s TV shows to present a truly chilling theatre production called Ghost Stories. The shocking macabre play is set to finish its run on 7th November, so Halloween night’s performance looks set to be extra special.
