Trapped in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland lovers, this one’s for you.

Trapped in Wonderland is essentially a gory event version of Lewis Carroll’s children’s book.

According to the event description, Alice, who has gone made from being locked away for years, has decided to host a party on 31 October.

The event will be held at Indigo O2, and includes everything from confetti showers to fortune tellers and doughnut giveaways.

Fancy dress is required, but for safety reasons, guests are not allowed to use too much fake blood.

Ticket prices start from £13.05.

Halloween Ball at the Mansion

You have seven hours to explore three floors, including three dance floors and an art exhibition by Y. Wildi.

The Halloween Ball (location to be revealed) will feature plenty of party extras including fire shows, cage dancers, a clairvoyant and makeup artists to help you look your scariest.

Keep an eye out for the mythical demon Beelzebuth, too.

As for the live entertainment, there will be three different DJs, a saxophone player and a djembe player.

The event takes place on 26 October and tickets are available from £24.00.

Twisted Circus Halloween Festival

It’s the sixth run for this hair-raising festival.

Head over to The Grand in Clapham Junction if you want to explore the dark side of the circus with ‘death-defying acts, crazy characters and a heart-pumping soundtrack’, as well as several shows – from body-stapling to pierced weight-lifting and the ‘bed of blades’.

Creepy clowns also guaranteed.

Hosted on Friday 1 November, tickets start from £14.55.

Horroween at Elrow

Organisers behind Elrow are putting together a Halloween special for 2019, dubbed ‘Horroween’.

This all-night bash will be held at The Drumsheds, the warehouses run by Printworks near Meridian Water rail station.

Sure, it’s a bit far to travel – but if you’re after a rave, you’ll love it.

The event will take place on 3 November from noon until 10pm, tickets start from £39.62.

Afrobeats Halloween Special

It’s all about music at the Afrobeats Halloween Special on 25 October.

There’ll be ‘non-stop afro infused tracks’, as well as live entertainment by bongo musicians.

That’s not all – you can also get your fortune told, watch some magic tricks or ask for a love potion from an African witch.

Fancy dress is encouraged, but not required.

Choose from two ticket options; a two-course meal and a welcome drink, plus free entrance to the club for £30 or just the clubbing experience from £5.

Jägermeister’s cursed canal cruise

How’d you fancy being trapped on a boat with creepy ghosts?

Jägermeister has partnered with Ladies & Gentlemen to host a cursed cruise along canals in London.

As expected, there’ll be plenty of booze on-board, such as ice cold shots to chill your veins and special cocktails, as well as a wood-burning fire to keep the cold at bay.

The Dark Spirit, as the boat is known, will host 12 people, twice a day for two hours each trip, and includes a mysterious ride through the Victorian-designed Islington Tunnel.

Tickets are available from £20 with two drinks as part of the package.

Skylight’s Halloween on Ice

Christmas meets Halloween at Skylight on 31 October.

Pop on your most frightening outfit before making your way onto the rink at Tobacco Dock.

Alternatively, cosy up to a date inside an igloo or a cosy hut, before taking part in one of several Halloween games at the venue.

There will also be two seasonally-themed performances, as well as ‘Trick or Treat’ locations where you can nab yourself some free candy.

It’s not quite a party, but not quite an ice-skating event, either.

Tickets from £5.
