It might be the beginning of October, but if you’re in the mood to do something special this Halloween then now is the definitely the time to act.

There’s plenty of upcoming Halloween events in London – ranging from intimate cinema screenings to full-blown rooftop parties in the heart of Kensington. We’ve got an inclination most of these tickets will sell fast, so the sooner you jump in the better.

London Month of the Dead

Where Lots of different locations
When Throughout October
Cost £0 – £15

Do you have a morbid curiousity for London’s Victorian cemeteries? What about legends of the undead from the city’s most posthumous writers? Or maybe you just like gin?

This month-long celebration is one of the most exciting events happening in London this Halloween. There’s still plenty of tickets available and most come with a complimentary cocktail. Plus, a portion of all proceeds will go towards restoring Brompton Cemetery – one of the oldest garden cemeteries in Britain.


Rocky Horror Picture Show and Shock Treatment double bill

Where BFI Southbank
When Saturday 29 October 6pm
Cost £18 – £26.40

It wouldn’t be Halloween without some Rocky Horror, right?

It’s the 35th anniversary of Dr Frank-N-Furter’s beautiful creation. So there’s no better way to celebrate than a double bill of Rocky Horror and Shock Treatment. There are still a few tickets left and promises to be a glorious excuse to dress up and nosedive into the bizarre and wonderful world of Richard O’Brien.


Stranger Things-themed Halloween party

Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen
When Saturday 29 October 8pm
Cost £5

If you haven’t yet got your fill of gruesome other-dimension monsters and bad ’80s hair, then this is your event.

Stranger Things is pretty much the best original TV series to spawn from Netflix. And with a huge cult following already, this event promises to deliver on campy fandom and tasty cocktails throughout the night.

Word to the wise: dress to impress.

The Roof Gardens

Where The Roof Gardens
When Thursday 27 October 8pm, Friday 28 October 8pm
Cost £20 +

If you’d prefer something a bit more exclusive and glamorous this Halloween, then definitely check out the Rooftop Gardens.

For the price of one ticket, you’ll gain access to a gorgeously over-the-top club night, followed with BBQ, and a complimentary cocktail upon arrival.

The only thing to keep in mind is that you need to be 21+ to buy tickets – and you’ll have to show your ID at the door.

The Shining

Rivoli Ballroom
When Thursday 27 October 8pm, Friday 28 October 8pm
Cost £12

It’s arguably the greatest horror film of all time. Directed by Stanley Kubrick, this terrifying masterpiece follows the story of the Torrance family and their winter lockdown at the Overlook Hotel. If you’re unfamiliar with this film, then expect an abundance of creepy children, grizzly deaths, and a cruel case of writer’s block that has the power to haunt us all.

The Rivoli Ballroom is showing this wonderful film on the weekend before Halloween. Tickets will sell fast, so we recommend booking as soon as possible.
