Things to do on Halloween in Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle

Posted on:

Halloween is just around the corner, and it’s time for you to get your plans into full swing. Whether you’re looking to head into the city centre, or for something a little different, we’ve handpicked some of the best Halloween events taking place in Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle.

 

Leeds

Harvey Nichols – Halloween Film Night at Espresso Bar

Harvey Nichols fourth floor espresso bar is hosting a Halloween film night on the 31st October. The movie, Edward Scissorhands, will be playing at 7pm while customers indulge in a delicious three-course meal. The evening will cost £24.50 and a £10 deposit will be required when booking. If a film and meal isn’t enough to satisfy your Halloween needs, the event finishes in plenty of time for you to head into Leeds and sample some of the best outfits donned by party-goers at events such as The Voodoo Halloween Showcase at the O2 Academy.

Paranormal Investigation – Leeds Town Hall

If you’re wanting to take a different approach to a night out this Halloween, the first ever paranormal investigation is taking place underneath the Leeds Town Hall in the Victorian Cells. The event runs from 8.00pm till 2.30am with light refreshments available during the breaks. Throughout the night you will experience ‘table tipping’, an EVP (electronic voice phenomenon) session, a Ouija board experiment to contact spirits, along with many more spooky activities. This special event will cost £45.00 per person, and will definitely be a night to remember!

 

Manchester

Grosvenor Casino Murder Mystery

On the 26th October, the ‘Most Spooked’ murder mystery is taking place at the Grosvenor Casino in Salford. Consisting of a ‘murder’ and a two-course meal, this dining experience, which only costs £17.95, is set to be more unusual than most. Individuals interrogate each other and will slowly unravel the crime as all the evidence is exposed. The night runs from 7pm to 10:30pm, leaving you plenty of the night to head back into Manchester if the mood takes you.

Querky! Halloween Special- Tiger Tiger Manchester

If Halloween fancy dress is your thing, and you think of yourself as an expert costume designer, why not show off your skills on your Halloween night out? Head down to Tiger Tiger in Manchester for their Halloween Querky event, where the best dressed guest of the night will bag themselves £500. Not bad for a nights work!

 

Newcastle

Halloween Drive-In Movie Theatre

From the 31st October to 2nd November there will be a variety of scary films showing on the newly established drive-in movie theatre in Bents Park. With two viewings each night, the movies generally commence around 6pm or 9pm. Tickets are £20 per car or £24 if you wish to be in the front row. A variety of food is also available (just don’t drop it on your seats!). Give your Halloween experience a taste of America with this rare event.

Halloween Night Ghost Walk

On the 31st October, a Halloween ghost walk is taking place in the Castle Prison and Dungeon Séance. The castle is considered to be one of Newcastle’s most haunted places, and has hundreds of real-life stories linked to gruesome evidence. There will be Ouija boards, EVP (electronic voice phenomenon) recordings and a creepy tour of the historic castle by candlelight. Tickets are £10 if you book online and £15 on the door, with the walk taking around an hour and a half to complete.

If you’re readying yourself for a big night of Halloween festivities, or are heading for a night out in Leeds, Manchester or Newcastle, make sure you check out Roomzzz Aparthotels for a luxurious state – and end – to your evening.

 Check out this lovely review of our Manchester city centre hotel!

“Very Relaxing”

5 of 5 starsReviewed 6 January 2012 
 
We arrived for a stay of one night only, and after all the busyness of Christmas we wanted simply to relax and go shopping. In the end we stayed in the room drank loads of champagne and didn’t go anywhere, and that was all down to the quality of the room, the decor, the flexibility of having a well equipped kitchen and the general ambience the surroundings created We have stayed here around 6 times and on every occasion we have been more than satisfied, the receptionist was very helpful, as the staff at Roomzzz always are. We will be going back again soon.

"Perfect in Every Way!" – your words not ours!

“Perfect in Every Way!”

Reviewed 14 November 2011 NEW

Just back from my first stay at Roomzzz Aparthotel, Manchester. It was fantastic!!
 
Car parking was very close by in the recommended car park and was discounted by the hotel. so was only £12 for an overnight.
 
On arrival we were met by a lovely receptionist, who was extremely helpful, telling us the best places to eat etc and she printed us out a map.
 
The room was brilliant!! I couldn’t believe the amount of facilities in the room. The bed was lovely and clean and comfortable. The kitchen area amazing, I couldn’t believe there was even a dishwasher in the room!! There was just nothing more you could want. The shower was great, with lovely unusual fittings in the bathroom. The TV and free computer were great too.
 
There was a grab and go breakfast, which was great…..pastries, fruit, tea and all kinds of coffee. Took some back to the room and had it there.
 
On checking out the receptionist asked us if we wanted to take any of the breakfast things with us, which was lovely (we didn’t take any!!)
 
All in all an absolutely perfect stay and would not hesitate in returning and would recommend to anyone!! Thank you so much Roomzzz!! x

Just to bring you up to speed…

The gist is we say it’s Friday and as a treat for our fans and followers you get the chance to tell us what your fav things are about staying in our luxury aparthotel in Leeds and Manchester, post it on Facebook and wait till Wednesday of the following week to find out if you’ve only gone and won.

Which offers a multitude of exciting weekend options… and plus you even get the chance to stay on the house Friday and you might even like to book an extra night on the Saturday with a nice discount (of course) we look after our winners and guests – and make it into a whole luxury weekender.

Our winners were naturally delighted to stay in a city centre luxury hotel on the house in Leeds (well you would be wouldn’t you)

The emotions of maybe winning and then winning went like this…

‘Before I get all excited for nothing can I please check if I’m one of the lucky winners? I commented on your post on 25th Feb (last Fri)’

And also… ‘When are you going to be announcing who’s won the stay this Friday? It’s too exciting!’

Secondly, We were really pleased to find out that our winners had a fabulous time – she told everyone about it on Facebook I just wanted to post a, HUGE, thank you for our night in Leeds. The staff were amazing, couldn’t do enough to help. We had a fantastic time and hope to do it all again soon! :D :D

Thirdly – we announced our next winner who is staying tonight…this was her winning entry…

Woohoo happy to see this comp is running again. I would love to say how lovely your hotels are but have not yet had chance to pay them a visit ( I can say how gorgeous the piccies look though). I will instead tell you why I would love to win this. My boyfriend is out of town this weekend and so my parents are wanting to come and visit me. This would be a lovely surprise so they can stay down and spend a couple of days with me & not have to do their usual dashing visit x Fingers crossed xx

And her happy response…

Wow thank you so so so so much xxx

So as you can see… a feel good week across the board! We think that all luxury and boutique hotels should do this… maybe it’s just us. What you can be certain of is that in our accommodation in Leeds and Manchester this weekend all of our guests will be radiating good cheer and happiness!

Enjoy the weekend!

PS – we’re running the comp again… starting from NOW! You have until Weds next week to perfect your story. Post them on Roomzzz Facebook
