As September comes to a close, it’s time to turn our thoughts to one of our favourite holidays of the year – Halloween!
With loads of events for Halloween in London to choose from, better start thinking what costume will it be this year? Where do you want to be celebrating? And who do you want to be with? Whether you dress up as something humorously scary (Donald Trump as US president, anyone?), stick to one of the classics (witch, skeleton, zombie – you know the score), or #breaktheinternet by bringing the best memes of 2016 to life, it’s never too early to begin the festivities and preparations. We’re calling it Hallo-tober! Octob-een?
