Halloween Guide 2017

Halloween Guide 2017

Andrew Kemp | Features & Interviews

They come around soon, these ‘biggest nights of the year’. Some say it’s NYE, others say it’s exam results day; but we all know what it really is, don’t we? Yeah, that’s right: Halloween.

Formerly a cause for celebration strictly to our American cousins, Halloween is now a firm favourite in the calendars of British clubbers, with the excuse to dress up and get down too tantalising to pass up. Up and down the country, people will don their scariest clothing, faces painted like all kinds of harrowing creatures, and pass up door-knock tricks for dancefloor treats. Here to help you find your Halloween destination, we ran through the best of the action in London, Leeds, Manchester and beyond.
