Halloween Events In London 2018


Halloween is on the horizon, the true sign that autumn has arrived, and as always London is playing host to a spooktacular variety of events! If you haven’t filled your diary just yet then our pick of the top Halloween events in London should help you out.




The Crystal Maze


Remember The Crystal Maze? The fast paced and frenetic TV game show that’s recently been rebooted? Well you can now go into the maze IRL and they are putting on a special Halloween edition aptly titled The Dark Maze. Book your tickets now as it’s only on for one night!  
Horniman Halloween Fair
Make your way down to the Horniman Halloween Fair for two days of frighteningly good activities and stalls for kids and adults alike, all with free entry.  With a farmers market, puppet shows, face painting, lantern making workshop’s, an arts & crafts market and a parade it’s the perfect family day out.
Luna Cinema at The Natural History Museum
There is no easier way to celebrate Halloween then sticking on a horror film. Forego your front room though for the incredible surroundings of The National History Museum where the Luna Cinema will be hosting screenings of classics such The Shining, Ghostbusters and The Blair Witch Project.
Pumpkin Carving
Make sure your pumpkins are top notch at these pumpkin decorating workshops, designed for all ages of kids. Ticket price includes one pumpkin that you get to take away at the end of the day so all you need to bring is your creativity!
Harry Potter Studio Tour
What’s better than Hogwarts? Halloween at Hogwarts of course! The Warner Bros Studio tour will be decking out the Great Hall with hundreds of pumpkins floating from the ceiling just like in the movie, sadly not with magic, where you can tuck into a feast  Harry would be jealous of followed by dessert  in the spooky Forbidden Forest. The evening also gives you access to the studio after hours so no jostling to see all the sets and finer details that brought these stories to life. End the evening with wand lessons for a perfectly thrilling Halloween.
Purge inspired club night
This immersive clubbing event is inspired by the insanely popular Purge movies – so don’t expect the usual club night. Along with DJs there will be live theatre performances ramping up the tension and with a venue name like Bunker 51 we suspect there will be plenty of frights to keep you on your toes.
