Here at Q we’ve put together a list of the best events taking place over the spookiest weekend of the year, Halloween. Whether it is culture, family friendly cult films or a 10k run with a difference, we are sure to have something to suit everyone. 

Museums at Night

Over the Halloween weekend museums across London open their doors after-hours with late night exhibition viewings and a range of spooky Halloween-themed events. The Museums at Night is not to be missed with highlights including a talk on human remains at the Benjamin Franklin House and a Handel by Candle tour of the Handel House Museum.

The Making of Harry Potter

Explore the eerie aspects to the Harry Potter movies with the Warner Bros Studio special Harry Potter exhibition over the Halloween period. Visitors are treated to a number of special effects developed by combat choreographer Paul Harris, like battling a Death Eater with a wand and coming face to face with a dementors. Visitors to the studio will get all the insights into how the special effects were made as well spooky sets full of dark magic meddlers and sinister props.

Screening of Cult Flick “The Craft”

The Book club in Hoxton East and Shoreditch is having a screening and a themed night dedicated to the cult flick “The Craft” on Saturday 31st October.  After the free screening at 6pm there will be a jewellery making class where you can recreate your own crucifix choker. As the night unfolds a club night of 90’s and early 00’s music with makeup artists on hand to give you the perfect Goth chic 90’s look takes place.

Trick or Treat Run

Don your scariest costume and choose between the 2k, 5k or 10k run while raising money this Halloween. This is a great family friendly event with children under six going free and family discounts available and money fundraised going to Breast Cancer Care the race’s charity partner. In keeping with the Halloween theme the course is divided in zones featuring skeletons, witches, zombies and pumpkins. At the finish line participants are asked if they would like a trick or a treat! Everyone that enters the race receives a medal and a goodie bag.
