Hallowe’en is the time when humans allow themselves to celebrate the spooky. To mark this we are hosting two scarily special events for our friends and volunteers.
A Frightful Evening, with late night Hallowe’en shopping, takes place at 6.30pm on 24th October at the Ministry of Stories. Hallowe’en is the time when humans allow themselves to celebrate the spooky. To mark this we have drawn together a few of them who each have a quirky or informative take on the subject. What makes us frightened and why do some of us delight in being scared?
The evening will be compered by writer Joe Dunthorne, author of brilliant novels, SUBMARINE and WILD ABANDON. Before during and after our Panel of Peril, you can stock up on seasonal Hallowe’en goods in Hoxton Street Monster Supplies, the only shop to cater to the everyday needs of every imaginable kind of monster. Shop for large and small monsters in you life and hear more about our exciting lines for Christmas before you run screaming into to the night.
Tickets are free to regular Ministry of Stories volunteers, £5 for guests, including a glass or two of wine. Book your place now via We Got Tickets.
Nightmare on Pollard Street, 7-10pm on 31st October is a Hallowe’en Hootenanny with a difference. It’s a chance to let your hair down, enjoy some stellar acts (donating their many talents to the Ministry for free) and to meet other like minded folk in a splendidly sociable atmosphere. The very special line up will be announced shortly. Add to this some game-based inspired silliness from our friends at Coney in the form of Sangre y Patatas, a game where your techniques for escaping a very scary monster will be fully demonstrated, and we think you have a recipe for a perfect evening.
