#CocoLeeds: Grown-up Ways To Celebrate Halloween In Leeds

Because Halloween ain’t just for kids …

 

Do the monster mash
Are you looking for a huge night of music, entertainers and theatrics? Every October Sticky Feet throw a huge party on Halloween, so if you feel like having a spooky boo-gie grab yourself a ticket, get your best monstrous outfit ready and you’ll be Time Warp-ing with your friends before you know it.

Get crazy with some mini golf
Recently opened Junkyard Golf Club is hosting an epic Frat Party in honour of the scariest night of the year. Embark on one, or all, of the three crazy courses fuelled by themed cocktails and challenge your pals to beer pong tournaments. Don’t forget to go all out with your outfit as the Facebook events promises free cocktails for the best dressed! Book your time slot online to guarantee your “tee off” time.

Cure a zombie virus with the help of some cocktails
This immersive experience at The Great Escape Room is the hot ticket for Saturday night. Combining the latest trend of escape rooms with cocktail making in an interactive zombie-themed activity this is perfect if you fancy a fun, boozy time with your friends and family. Make sure you book in advance.

Pick your own pumpkin
A tradition from over the pond, pumpkin picking is a sure fire way to get you in the Halloween spirit. You might consider this a childish activity, but if you fancy a booze-free daytime way to celebrate the holiday this is a great option. You’ll have to venture a little out the centre to find yourself wandering through a pumpkin patch, but we think it’s worth it to pick your own orange veg friend to carve up at home. The closest options are Farmer Copley’s in Pontefract (WF7 5AF) and Birchfield Farm in Harrogate (HG3 4JS).

Have an outdoor cinema experience
How do you feel about settling down in the grounds of a spooky Abbey to watch Stephen King’s IT? If you think you can handle the fear-factor then wrap up and head to Kirkstall Abbey for this outdoor screening (if you don’t fancy spending two hours with Pennywise then they’re also showing Hocus Pocus at different times).

Have some spooky snacks
House of Coco favourite, Temple Coffee, have give their famous donuts a Halloween makeover and they look creepily irresistible. With blood red donuts, spider web icing and black ice cream this is a go-to destination for some horror-themed treats. As always, Temple’s donuts will be extremely popular and can sell out so check their Instagram for stock updates before you visit!

Release your inner devil at a masquerade ball
Leeds’ prestigious venue, Aspire, is hosting a Heaven & Hell Masquerade Ball this weekend. Here you can hide behind a mask as you party like a VIP in this stylish setting, with a DJ, special guests and live scare actors. This is the do-not-miss event if you want to go all out with your costume and party in style. Tickets are selling out fast, so get yours quickly!

Whatever you decide to do to get in the Halloween spirit, we hope you have a terrifying time!
