The Ultimate Halloween event guide for the North East & Beyond.




I LOVE Halloween, it is no secret and my friends and family will tell you how crazy I am for a good Halloween event. I am a self taught Special fx makeup artist, and every year we go to various Halloween events across the country.

One of our family favourites is Beamish Halloween evenings however this year it looks like that wont be going ahead. We have searched high and low for some of the best events taking place across the North East and beyond this Halloween.


For more great ideas, check us out on Facebook, Instagram or twitter


This Guide will be updated when attractions release details, obviously this year, due to covid-19, many attractions won't be planning anything.
