WHAT’S ON THIS HALLOWEEN

25.10.12

It’s that time of year again. Carved pumpkins, toffee apples and Stephen King movies can only mean one thing; All Hallows’ Eve is upon us. Although Halloween falls rather inopportunely on a Wednesday this year, there are still plenty of Hellish happenings taking place over the next week into next weekend. Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie after a chilling thrill or simply fancy some Mexican street food, here’s our round up of what's going on in London this Halloween...

Zombie Horror Camp

For a fantastically frightening experience, head over to the Old Vic Tunnels in London for Zombie Horror Camp. The event will run over three nights and will include voodoo doll making, a grotesque strip club and a “zombie run”. There will also be DJ sets from The Horrors, Guilty Pleasures, Gary Powell from The Libertines and Adam Ficek from Babyshambles.

Day of the Dead Festival

Another event taking place at the Old Vic Tunnels is the Day of the Dead Festival. Award-winning ‘street food’ chain Wahaca will bring a four-day festival celebrating Mexico’s Day of the Dead, with food from the street kitchen and cocktails from the Mezcalaria bar. Running from next Wednesday to Saturday, the event will be open from 2-6pm each day and again at 7pm for the evening. Expect everything from sugar skull painting, paper mask making, cardboard coffin decorating, great food, music, art and film.
