I know people say it’s become very American, with a whole host of industries such as fancy dress, spooky sweets and gimmicky menus with witches’ eyeballs and gory cocktails called Vomit Vodka.
What I like are the classic ghost stories by authors like Wilkie Collins or Bram Stoker’s Dracula. This year I’m planning on partaking in a ghostly evening walk, which will probably scare the living daylights out of me. But surely this is more exciting than a night in front of the TV wishing it was still summer.
I was looking for a Halloween outing in this neck of the woods and came across an intriguing offer from, of all places, the London Canal Museum in King’s Cross. Not the first venue I would have thought of for some spine-tingling experiences. Nevertheless, they promise a ghostly boat trip, a tunnel of fear and creepy storytelling. I can’t wait to meet spirits from the other side as the boat glides through the water in darkness. Sounds right up my street.
And how will you be spending your Halloween? Let me know if you’ve seen any grey ladies, pesky poltergeists or headless huntsmen!
If you’ve got a local story that needs to be shouted from the rooftops, then drop me an email and tell me all about it.
