Halloween in Newcastle

With cold weather creeping in and Christmas trees already appearing in John Lewis (yes, really!), we're well aware that Halloween is just around the corner. We have searched high and low for the best tickets in town, and with something to cater for everyone, you're in for a treat!

'Tatty Devine' Workshops at Baltic Mill

Being hands-on, creative types, we were delighted to discover the opportunity to create our own Tatty Devine necklaces for under fifty quid. The Tatty Devine bone necklace workshops are held at Baltic Mill on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th October. We are sorely temped by these workshops, as not only do you learn how to make and take away your own necklace, you choose everything from the chain length/style, perspex bone colours and Swarovski crystals *swoon*, meaning a totally personal piece of jewellery for just £39.95. Catch you at the crystals!

'Horror Week' at Tyneside Cinema

For those of you into films, you'll be spoilt rotten at Tyneside Cinema this year. Watching the pennies? Keep an eye on their surprise 'Free Film Nights' with special drinks offers, which include 'Zombie Week' (23-25th October) and 'Horror Week' (28th-31st October). Looking for something more unique? Tyneside are also screening Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein' on 31st October as a part of the National Theatre's 50th anniversary celebrations. It would be rude not to take advantage of these screenings, and we'll look forward to a sneaky free film (or three).

'Drive in Horror Films' at Ocean Beach, South Sheilds

Ok so maybe this one's not strictly Newcastle but thought we would give it a mention as it sounds quite appealing. Ocean Beach at South Shields is holding a drive-through cinema event from 31st October till 2nd November, where films are shown on a large screen and the audio is played through your car radio! Films include horrors such as 'The Cabin in the Woods' and 'The Ring', as well as family friendly 'Monsters University' and 'Grease'.

Lates at Life (31st October)

As the event title suggests, Newcastle's Centre for Life is open late, 8pm till 11.45pm to be precise. Prepare to expect special cocktails, a talented local DJ, their brand new Frankenstein 4D motion ride and plenty of Halloween-themed excitements...having already experienced this last year, we can vouch for a night full of indulgent fun and curiosity.

Warehouse 34 - 1st Annual Monster Ball (Sat 26th Oct)

We're excited about this exclusive event being held at the industrial venue Warehouse 34 in Hoults Yard...Keltie Cochrane's 1st Annual Monster Ball is strictly fancy dress, and the event, which is in association with Cancer Research UK, includes a charity raffle, auction and even a hog roast (which is included in the £22.50 tickets)! With sponsors from Hotel Du Vin, Sherlocks, Gusto Restaurant and Bar and As You Like It to name a few, this event looks set to be a big one.

Alone in the Dark - Halloween Night Ghost Walk (31st October)

This one isn't for the faint hearted but sounds perfect for anyone looking for a genuinely terrifying experience. The Halloween Night Ghost Walk tells the history of what is supposedly 'one of Britain's most bloody prisons', and you'll be guided through their candle-lit corridors. The event is hosted by paranormal investigators and will include a seance in the castle dungeon, table tipping and Ouija Board. Only for the mega brave or mega sceptical.
