So Halloween is upon us again, and already the shops are full of witches costumes, vampire teeth and pumpkins. I love Halloween but I think at twenty-one I might be slightly too old to spend the night trick-or-treating and gorging myself on sweets. So here are some slightly more grown up ways to capture that Halloween magic.
If you’re up for going out this year, then The Forum has got you covered. Their Flirt! Halloween special features Beatboxer Duke and they are offering a whooping £1000 prize for best costume, so get going on your fancy dress.
Don’t feel like going out? Why not host a Murder Mystery night? A Murder Mystery night is basically the live action version of Cluedo, all you need to do is invite a few friends round (you’ll need to write character descriptions for them), wait for the murder to happen and then get your detective hats on! Although it requires a bit of planning, if you can pull it off it a Murder Mystery night is a ton of fun.
If you’re feeling really brave why not visit Hatfield Forest for their annual Batty Hallowe’en celebration. There will be scary activities and a spooky after dark stroll through the woods (and anyone who has ever seen a horror movie knows how dangerous it is to walk through a forest after dark!). If you want to venture outside Hatfield, the London Halloween Ghost Walk is sure to give you the creeps and is a great way to explore the capital.
Not up for anything particularly taxing this year? Why not have a movie night? Stick on your favourite Halloween film, get in your comfiest pyjamas and have a takeaway. You can check out BlueMoon’s ‘Top Five Halloween Movies’ for some spooky inspiration!
Whatever you end up doing on Halloween, have fun, stay safe and most importantly don’t let the ghouls get you!
