London’s smartest boroughs will be full of Sloanie revellers come Saturday night, seizing the opportunity for a bit of fancy dress, ghostly goings-on and downright devilish behavior. Here’s where the King’s Road set will be found this weekend…
Spooky Tours of Kensington Palace
This most famous royal household is home to over three hundred years of creepy tales and chillsome unexplained events. Book yourself onto a 90-minute guided tour if you’re in London this weekend and fancy a frightful night strolling the darkened corridors of this historical attraction. Just make sure you bring a friend to cling onto…
Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride
Upmarket Richmond Park is the location for this most eerie encounter, where an hour-long guided tour takes you on a chilling journey past murder scenes and the sites of ghostly apparitions. Huddle under the cozy blankets provided and sip on warming sloe gin as you gaze up at the gnarled Shrew Ash: an ancient tree that once thought to cure sicknesses with the help of witches. Oooh, creepy!
Scary Movie All-Nighter
Head for super-Sloanie Mayfair if you fancy a night of back-to-back scary movies at Regent’s Street Cinema. They’ll be screening ‘Christine’, ‘Tourist Trap’, ‘Halloween III’, ‘Salem’s Lot’ and ‘Zombie Flesh Eaters’ this Saturday, with a live band to entertain the masses between movies with tunes from all your favorite scary movies. Singing along is actively encouraged. This one’s an all-out fancy dress affair with prizes for the most ghoulish costumes. Last entry is at midnight, party people. Pass the popcorn!
Fright Night at Bunga Bunga
Beautiful Battersea is home to crazy Bunga Bunga, a riotous nightclub that’s a long-time favorite with the younger members of the Royal family. This weekend they’ve got three floors of frightful fun in store, with make-up artists on hand to transform revellers into zombies, corpse brides and all manner of freaks, creeps and critters. Get yourself on that guest list if you’re in the capital this weekend!
Murder Mystery at Mr Foggs
This eccentric Mayfair watering hole opens its doors this weekend to revellers in Victorian fancy dress for a series of theatrical skits on the theme of London’s most infamous serial killer. Part drama, part murder-mystery party, this event is sure to whip its guests up into a paranoid frenzy as the hunt for the murderer gathers momentum.
Happy Halloween, Sloanies!
