Forgot to plan your Hallo-week out? Here’s what’s happening every day of the week

Yoloween, free donuts and more


With Halloween just around the corner, you don’t want to miss out on all the exciting events available in Cardiff. We looked into all the local Halloween events so you don’t have to, and something’s happening every night of the week.

Make sure to check if tickets are required before attending to avoid the crushing disappointment of standing in your cute Shrek onesie in the rain as you’re turned away due to full capacity.

Monday 25th October

It’s a Monday night which means it’s a mandatory stop at Quids In. Where else would you be instead of queuing, even just to have a chance for a photo-op with the big giraffe?

Tuesday 26th October

Try your second night of Hallo-week in Revs. Basically what we’re saying is that every night out is Halloween-themed. Sounds like nobody has an excuse to skip the Halloween costume this week!
