While we might not yet have reached American levels of costume planning and sweet stocking, it's fair to say that over the last decade Halloween has become an increasingly significant deal here in the UK.
It's not just for children, either. Kids get to dress up and go trick and treating after they get home from school, but later in the night, this annual event provides a chance for adults to get into costume and head to one of the many parties across London.
So if you're looking to don a zombie costume and head out somewhere in London, these are five parties we'd recommend you check out...
90s vs 00s Halloween - 229 The Venue
This fancy dress party at 229 on Great Portland Street promises to be as retro as it is scary, with DJs playing tracks from the early nineties through to the noughties until 3am. Whether you want to Spice Up Your Life or Take A Ride with Nelly – it will be a nostalgic Halloween to remember.
Twisted Circus Halloween Festival 2019 – Clapham Grand
The most chaotic Halloween that London has to offer. For the sixth year, this Clapham venue is providing "death-defying acts, crazy characters and a heart-pumping soundtrack". With body stapling, pierced weight lifting and a bed of blades, it promises to be London's freakiest Halloween party.
London's Biggest Old Skool RnB Halloween Party – Pony
Anyone who fancies celebrating the scariest night of the year with 2Pac and Biggie should head down to Pony in Shoreditch's Hoxton Square for a night of old school hip hop. If you're rolling deep (a group of ten or more) then your group will be entitled to two free bottles of Prosecco and queue jump, so get a crew together if you can.
Ministry of Sound Halloween Rave - Ministry of Sound
The best Halloween party for ravers, this night at London's most iconic club doesn't stop until 5am. Guests can expect to be entertained by gruesome lasers, Grim Reaper freebies, the world’s loudest brain-blowing sound-system and zombie dancers. Bring your glow sticks.
