The post-rave generation of parents can induct their under-eights into the ways of the dancefloor at this family-friendly afternoon disco. Kids and adults can throw shapes to acid house, techno, drum ’n’ bass and more in a space filled with bubbles, balloons and foam. You can spend your downtime at the Halloween crafts table, getting the whole family’s faces painted or relaxing in the baby chill-out area. Spooky dressing-up is very much encouraged.
Second only to Christmas as the funnest holiday of the year (although we’re fans of Bonfire Night too), Halloween has so much more going for it than trick-or-treating. Kids love dressing up, and spooky outfits are practically mandatory at this time of year – many of the below family-friendly events encourage guests to don fancy dress and scary masks.
Whether your children are dog lovers, disco babes, pumpkin pickers or even trainee witches, there are loads of wicked things to do in London for them this Halloween. And as All Hallows’ Eve falls right at the end of half-term this year (Sunday October 31 2021), once the festivities are over, you can pack the kids back off to school with green-tinged hair and faint traces of ghoulish face paint on their cheeks. Happy Halloween!
