I am trying to persuade my partner that we need to hire ridiculous costumes for Halloween. If that fails then I’ll be downing some fang-tastic blood red martinis and checking out these ghoulish goings-on……
Visitors to The Jekyll & Hyde will be donning their fishnets to do the time warp again at the Rocky Horror night. With all the glitz and glam of the 1970′s you can enjoy their three course Eat Me Drink Gin menu in Birmingham’s finest Gin Parlour for £35.
Brave souls will face the witching hour in the Dungeons after dark dining at Warwick Castle. An evening of terrifying entertainment with unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks plus a rustic meal for £49.50 per person (which also includes daytime admission to The Haunted Castle.)
Now in its ninth year, the Stratford upon Avon Halloween Festival centres around the Creaky Cauldron and Magic Alley in Henley Street, where kids will love the toffee apple milkshakes and pumpkin pie from the Golden Broomstick Café.
As standby supplies for trick or treaters you can’t go wrong with Cadbury’s ‘screme’ egg. The creme egg has undergone a Halloween transformation with the filling changed to a ghoulish green goo. Priced at £26 from www.cadburygiftsdirect.co.uk for a box of 48 eggs.
