This Halloween, you can celebrate the spookiest night of the year Carnaby style. 
Head to the Newburgh Quarter on Thursday 27 October, where chocolate emporium Choccywoccydoodah will be hosting a spooky soiree from 4-7pm. There will be plenty of free activities including ghostly competitions, monster mashing and creative pumpkin painting. You can visit the glitter station and add some sparkle to your beard and eyebrows or enjoy face painting while you listen to a killer soundtrack from DJ Winston. Chocolate prizes will be given to the most imaginative and impressive guests on the night, so make sure you dress to impress!

The party will continue at Carnaby Burger Co. with an exclusive Halloween menu featuring Smoked Bacon Bloody Mary’s and bone-sucking Vampire Ribs. You can dress as your favourite Halloween character and enjoy complimentary make-up, trick or treat games and get stuck into a Giant Burger Challenge. Still peckish? Swing by Shinola from 4pm-7pm for exclusive Halloween-inspired Crosstown Doughnuts whilst you shop their new collection.

Do not forget to pop into Lomography, who will be hosting a workshop using the Lomo'instant Wide camera to photograph the nights festivities in the Newburgh Quarter. You can show up in Fancy Dress, and you may even win a prize for the best costume! The workshop is £10 and included the loan of a lomo'instant wide camera and a pack of film. You can pre-book by calling or visiting the store.

If you are looking for the ultimate Halloween makeover, then you can head to Illamasqua on Beak Street and discover their ‘Dark Magic’ collection.
