It's a time to embrace your dark side, make friends with your demons and party like your already dead. Celebrated throughout many cultures all around the world it's history is rich and fascinating and from a performing point of view it's great to have a little more freedom to get darker, stranger and even a little (more?) sexy.
There are loads of events to get in the spirit (pun absolutely intended!) and so we thought it would be a great opportunity to throw our own...
Join our festival of freaks as we ignite your dark desires and delight your wicked ways. Dress to infest, bring your freaky, fiendish, friends and come join us for a night of tricks, treats and awesome feats!
Something wonderfully-wicked this way comes.
