    The Sophisticated Scare

    If you’re not so big on partying but you still want to get that ghoulish fix head to the Lancaster London where they will be hosting a Halloween themed afternoon tea. For just £30 per person they will be serving up spooky sweet treats such as eye ball lollypops (chocolate, raspberry and passion fruit flavour), black macaroons with a pumpkin filling and butternut squash tartlets as well as the usual jam and scones. The event will be held in the hotel’s sumptuous first floor Lounge Bar from 2pm until 5.30pm until Sunday. For more info head to http://www.lancasterlondon.com.

    The Zombie Invasion

    Not for the faint hearted the K West Hotel in Shepherds Bush will be getting into the spooky spirit by transforming its entire staff into zombies for the day on the 31st. The undead staff will be concocting Halloween cocktails in their cauldron at the Studio Bar for guests who have a penchant for spine-tingling spirits.

    The Raucous Rave

    Sometimes Halloween is just as much about the dressing up as it is about having a really good night out. For the serious music fans out there head to Building Six at the O2 for Found Horror Series Born and Bred Halloween which runs over two nights. On Friday check out Oxide and Neutrino, whilst on Saturday Maya Jane Coles headlines in a venue which hosts a whooping 3000 people over three floors.
