Here are Bristol’s best socially-distanced Halloween events this year

As if 2020 hasn’t been scary enough

We’ve got some spooky news for you: Halloween is just around the corner. We know that the global pandemic might have written off a fair few of this year’s fake-blood-splattered and face-paint-stained events but luckily we’ve done a bit of digging to find Bristol’s best weird, wonderful and Covid-friendly fun coming up.

Of course, because it’s 2020, we’ve included an online event, so even if you’re self isolating, you and your flat have no excuse but to dress up in your most spine-chilling garms.
