6 creepy date ideas for Halloween

screen-shot-2016-10-19-at-12-41-35

We’ve all dated a few creeps in our time but now it’s time for us to do the creeping. Yes, the scariest night of the year is back and we never tire of dressing up as vampires, werewolves, zombies, ghouls or axe murderers. There’s something so very liberating about being someone or something else for a night and getting into (naughty) character.  What do you mean you’ve got ‘no body’ to go with…ah, we see what you did there.

You’ve still got time to message that hot date and pick an event from our mischievious medley of spooky London date ideas.  It’s time to get frighteningly flirty…

Horror movies at the Rivoli Ballroom

We love the movies but here’s the thing about scary ones. It makes your date lean that little bit closer, take your hand or better still, jump into your lap.  The Rivoli Ballroom is showing a run of classic horrors such as The Shining and Halloween.  Just don’t go alone. You can let go of my hand now. What do you mean you’re not holding my hand…

lunaticLunatic at Theatre 16

Vampire lover? We all kinda liked the idea of Twilight, right? Oops, just us then. Don your best Dracula costume  and make an appearance at the gothic play “Lunatic”, based on the Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ The story is focused on the relationship between Dr. John Seward and his fly-eating patient R.M. Renfield. What does it have to do with Dracula? Well, go find out and sink your teeth into this one.

The House of Usher at Hope Theatre

Hands up who’s read the Edgar Allan Poe? Wait, how did you detach it from your arm? We were saying, this book left us unable to sleep for the rest of the night as we imagined all the creepy creatures under the bed (we’ve woken up to some creepy creatures in our beds but that’s another story) It’s time to revisit those childhood nightmares and grab a ticket to ‘The House of Usher’. The plot is inspired by Edgar Allan Poe and you will not be disappointed. This thrilling musical is telling us the story of the Ushers, a noble family plagued by a terrifying curse…(it just got cold in here)

Bring your friends, dance till dawn, fool around, ‘freak’ out skreeeeammm!
