Let's get spooky
With Halloween comes trick or treats, pumpkin spice, and the cherry on top… raving. It’s probably my favourite thing about Halloween – the chance to dress up in too-cold outfits, head down to XOYO, and get spooked by the price of sambuca shots with my friends. Last year I was Hermione Granger, and I haven’t yet decided who I’ll be dressing up as this year… to be honest, once I’ve had a few G+T’s I don’t usually care who I’ve come as.
There’s so much on at this time of year – it’s like the party people know that no one wants to be outside anymore, so they start taking the parties inwards and giving them a dark, haunted twist. Last year, it was difficult to party hard at this time of year. We had to make do with buying up all the M&S Halloween choccies and playing trick or treat with our flatmates as to who had the last spooky Colin cupcake (just me??). This year will be different. We promise. Take a look at this list of the best Halloween club nights to start the festive season with a bang… or a boo.
