Still no fun organised for halloween?

Check out what the Tab has to suggest for you

Halloween is one of those nights that people either really love or really hate… maybe the haters are just the loosers with no plans, or the moody neighbours that don’t give treats so are tricked instead.

There’s always the expectation that it will be a super fun night (… like New Years eve), so anything not fun is a little disappointing. Bearing this in mind, The Tab has put together a fail-safe-guaranteed-good-time guide of what is going on this Halloween!

So escape the persistent trick or treaters, put on some face paint and get yourself out!

Halloween Party @ Nation of Shopkeepers
Head down to Nation from 8pm for No Bones DJs, games (maybe even apple bobbing!), films and “an offensive slideshow” (yeah, I’m curious too). Fancy dress is encouraged, and there will be face and limb painting going on to make sure everyone is looking super spooky. Bands Wet Nuns, These Monsters, and Hot Soles are playing later on in the evening. Free entry, 8pm – late!

Dogtown at The Wire, Beach Goth Halloween special


If you don’t fancy the run of the mill, devil-horns-and-underwear type night, head down to Wire for the beach goth themed Dogtown. There will be Halloween treats, decorations, and again, fancy dress is encouraged. West coast vibes and a cool atmosphere – expect music as eclectic as Beach House, Black Lips, The Beach Boys and Snoop Dogg.


Flux presents Haunted House @ Canal Mills

Flux is back following their ridiculously successful night at Beaverworks, but tonight you’re going to have to make it a late one at Canal Mills. Audiojack, Homework and Gorge won’t disappoint.
10pm – 6am, tickets £6/£8



Bumble Beats @ The Faversham

Advertised as “booty shaking beats”. Head here if you’re into Dub, Hip Hop, Garage and D&B. The Funktion One sound system will make everything sound AMAZING. £3 cheap list or £4 on the door. But it is halloween, so you will have to dress up.

Or maybe the cinema…

Rocky Horror Picture Show/Halloween (1978) @ Vue Cinema, The Light

If you don’t fancy getting horribly drunk on Halloween, but still want to get into the spooky spirit of things, Vue at The Light is showing two cult classic Halloween films – The Rocky Horror picture Show and the original 1978 Halloween (the scariest!). So take your pick and head down for Rocky Horror, on at 8pm or Halloween, 10.15pm.
