This is Halloween

by Cat Preston

Christmas is just around the corner but have you ever considered Halloween for a party or event? No? Let us tell you why this might be the best time.


Firstly, as fellow Event’s planners in the weddings sector would attest, October holds great availability for events at competitive price points when compared to Summer or indeed Christmas.


Secondly, theming. Every great event has a strong theme and Halloween is primed for this. Whether you ask your guests to don fancy dress or not, pretty much everyone can get excited by some spooky theming, entertainment and catering. Pick a venue, or we can do this for you, and kit it out with spider webs, skeletons, pumpkins and more!


Thirdly, on-theme entertainment. A live band playing Halloween classics? A DJ mixing all the spooky hits – think Monster Mash, Thriller, and the Time Warp! ‘Wizards’ (aka magicians) doing crowd work. If you want to go all in, with horror movie characters roaming the room, we can arrange that for you. We’ll work with you to add something different, and memorable to your event.


In summary, Halloween parties are enormously fun and at a great time of year to get far more bang for your buck. Perhaps it’s time to consider one for 2023 or even get planning ahead for 2024? Get in touch via
