Halloween in Harlow

Friday 21st October 2016

We’ve rounded up some fun Halloween activities in and around Harlow for the whole family.

Harvey’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Screen-Shot-2016-10-12-at-10.51.46-209x300 Halloween in Harlow

This isn’t Hogwarts but it’s probably the closest you’ll come, in Essex anyway. At The Harvey Centre they’ll be potion classes, a broomstick training workshop and face painting. A magician straight from the wizarding world will be putting on a show which will blow your witches hats straight off.

But wait, there’s more! There will also be two special guests whom you might recognise from the Harry Potter series, and the world famous Harvey the Hippo is also making an appearance.

Chilling Event in the Woods – Pop-Up Cinema

Hotel_Trans-300x167 Halloween in Harlow

Nothing says Halloween like a classic Halloween film, but why don’t you keep the kids outside and watch Hotel Transylvania in the woods, snuggled up under the stars with a hot chocolate? Head to Risden Park Scout Camp in your scariest costumes on the 29th October.

Make sure to book your tickets soon to avoid disappointment.

Pumpkin Party Pumpkin Carving

Happy Hands Pottery

Harry Potty about pottery! There is a wonderful half-term pottery painting workshop from the people at Happy Hands Pottery on the 24th and 25th October at Moot House, the Stow.

Come and paint your spookiest designs onto cursed items such as pumpkin tea-lights, skulls, witches, popcorn bowls. You only pay for what you paint and your designs will be taken away to be glazed and fired in time for Halloween.

Heroes and Villains Halloween Disco

disco-300x216 Halloween in Harlow

Let’s face it kids will be made to dance to ‘Thriller’ at least once over Halloween – why not make their dance be at the Heroes and Villains disco at the Cooper Sale Institute Hall on Wednesday 26th October.

A spooky disco full of ghouls and ghosts hosted by the Evil Witch and The Most Sleepy Princess in the Kingdom, try to move and keep the Sleeping Princess awake so the evil witch doesn’t get up to mischief.

Games, competitions and lots of prizes to be won.

Whatever your age there’s always loads to do on Halloween, it’s a time when kids and adults alike both indulge whether it’s in ten gobstoppers or 20 Bloody Mary’s.

Just make sure you let loose and have fun!
