Pumpkins and fancy dress costumes at the ready, it’s that time of year again. Halloween is just around the corner and we know how much students love to get involved. So, this year we’ve pulled together a list of some top events taking place in the city; you’re in for a real treat…

1. Halloween in The Sky
Head to The Sky Garden and take Halloween to new heights this year, 35 floors above London. The sky-high venue will once again be transformed into a haunted destination featuring live music from The Soul Jets as well as a late-night DJ. Enjoy Halloween themed cocktails and food will, and don’t forget to dig out your best Halloween attire as they’ll be a prize for the best dressed!

2. Pumpkin Carving
It’s something you’ve probably tried at least once in your life, but how good are your pumpkin carving skills? Get together with your friends and put them to the test, while also learning how to creatively carve pumpkins from the professionals at Fortnum & Mason’s annual Halloween Pumpkin Carving Classes. There’s even a prize in each class for the best pumpkin.

3. Halloween Rave
If you’re looking to party hard this Halloween, look no further than the world-famous Ministry of Sound Halloween Rave. Taking place on Halloween itself, join thousands of partygoers and dance the night away to the sounds of 10 DJs playing freakishly good music across 4 rooms, right through to the dead of the night. Throw in trick or treat giveaways, zombie dancers, horror décor, lasers and much more and you’ve got yourself a Halloween night to remember.

4. Harry Potter Dark Arts
If you like Harry Potter, you’ll love this experience. Head to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour of The Making of Harry Potter for a special, Dark Arts feature. From floating pumpkins in the Great Hall to a live dual with Death Eaters, take a look behind the scenes and see the darker side of the Harry Potter film series.

5. Horroctober
Nothing says Halloween more than watching a scary movie or two. And we all know there’s no better place to watch a movie than at the cinema. So, why not head to The Prince Charles Cinema for a month of screams, chills, blood and guts… if you dare. Films being shown include The Exorcist, Scream, Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

6. Halloween Carnivale
Get into the spirit of Halloween with a Friday night party at Cargo – a venue built into existing railway arches. With freakishly good music and DJs playing right through from 6pm – 6am and a Halloween dress code, it’s the ultimate haunted destination to dance the night away.  And with Cargo handily located just a mile away from The Curve, you haven’t far to go to party!

7. Ghost Bus Tour
Think you know London? Think again. Hop on board a vintage double-decker and ride London’s only fright bus service to see another side of the city. You’ll discover the darker side of London as the strange conductor guides you through the city and uncovers its murky past.
