We love ... Halloween

DOUBLE, double, toil and trouble. Fire burn and cauldron bubble. With frights to turn the bravest green, here’s our guide to Halloween.

Halloween House, Sunday 28 October
Sutton House goes creepy for Halloween. Activities include Tudor medicine making, African scary stories, Victorian shadow puppetry, Georgian face painting and a spooky twist on the multitude of rooms, treasure chests and trails at the Grade II listed manor in Homerton High Street.

John Hegley’s Halloween workshop, Wednesday 31 October
Comedic poet and national treasure candidate John Hegley leads a Halloween themed creative writing workshop for children at Dalston Library. The afternoon - suitable for ages seven and above - explores poetry, writing and drawing with an All Hallows’ Eve twist. See: www.hackney.gov.uk/libraries-whats-on

The Book Club’s ‘spook season’, 29-31 October
It’s close to midnight and something evil is lurking inside The Book Club. The Leonard Street art and club venue turns to the dark side for three days of Halloween inspired, frightening performances. There will be an introduction to silent horror films, alongside a chance to make your own early 20th century flick; a taxidermy story session; Victorian style funerals; and, of course being The Book Club, a party well into the early hours.

Halloween at Boxpark, Wednesday 31 October
The first paying customer in each Boxpark store will receive either a trick or a treat donated by one of the pop-up mall’s resident brands. There’ll be 20 per cent off all first purchases in stores and another 10 per cent after that. Plus The Illustrated Nail will be doing Halloween-inspired manicures and Sweet Couture will sell cupcakes from their bikes. See: www.boxpark.co.uk

The Flicker Club, Wednesday 31 October
Czech filmmaker Jan Svankmajer’s grotesque part-animation Alice is the movie of the week at The Flicker Club in Stoke Newington Town Hall. The showing of this version of the Lewis Carroll story will be accompanied by a reading before the screening, tea party, cocktails and performances from actors. See: www.theflickerclub.com
