Spooky Brighton

While the weekend may be full of scary surprises designed to make you scream, I doubt you will be shocked to discover that today's post is going to be about Halloween ;)

Here are some of the macabre events happening this weekend:
  • Yellowave will be hosting a kids fancy dress Halloween party with fun ghoulish beach sports games on the sand, Halloween food, hot chocolate and marshmallows.
  • Take an after dark tour of Preston Manor - Brighton’s most haunted house. Hear about the Victorian ghost sightings, the 1896 séance and spooky experiences up to the present day.
  • At Brighton SEA LIFE Centre all children in full* Halloween costume will be given free entry into the attraction to take part in the various activities that are going on. There will be a trick or treat trail, scary face painting, a "yucky" dip, costume competition, Halloween music.... and much more!!
    *must be full costume, not just a hat or accessory
  • But Halloween isn't just for the kids so if you fancy showing off your spooky moves then get down to Komedia for Club Smooch: Monster Club for a horrifying Halloween show of spooky cabaret. There will be prizes for the best costumes and you get free entry into Club Ampwitch afterwards.
Although for those of you who view Halloween as a silly American holiday there is a classic example of British eccentricity happening this weekend. On Sunday it is the annual London to Brighton Veteran Car Run and to qualify all the cars have to have been produced before 1905 and as most of them don't have roofs let's hope it stays dry for them!

For such a silly American holiday, Brighton seems to be alive with the Halloween fever.

If you had walked aound Brighton on the 31st October you would have thought you had been transported to a set on a Horror Movie. Every possible costume and to be honest some revellers decided on minimal costumes (we are in Brighton after all) were on show and the atmosphere was spine chilling! Well done Brighton!

010 i'm sure will be Hell - well in a good way!

Hi Adventure Connections,

Thanks for the comment I just want to quickly add that I don't necessarily think it's a silly Americal holiday but I know some people do so thought I'd better add an alternative event :)

But some of the images from the Zombie walk on Saturday were amazing -
