Glasgow Halloween Events to Check Out

Glasgow Halloween Events

With this weekend’s weather feeling like the perfect setting for a Stephen King tale, I thought it would be a good time to give you guys a little round-up of some Glasgow Halloween events happening around town!

Here’s what you should check out during the spooky season this year…

Halloween Fright Night at Glasgow Science Centre

On Friday 27th October, Glasgow Science Centre will be hosting an evening of Frankenstein autopsies, potion making, monster moulding and much more! This interactive family party invites guests to get involved in Halloween-themed experiments at one of Glasgow’s leading venues. If you’ve ever fancied yourself as a mad scientist, this is the shindig for you!

Night Terror at M&D’s

Scotland’s theme park is asking you just one question this season: What are you afraid of? If you’re brave enough to find out, you might want to immerse yourself in the live Night Terror walk-through experience, which is running every Friday, Saturday and Sunday until 31st October. And, if that isn’t enough of an adrenaline rush, you can also ride some of the park’s top thrill rides in the dark! Find out more and catch booking details here.

Halloween Special Editions at Tantrum Doughnuts

Trick or treat? Most definitely a treat! OK, so this isn’t an event as such – BUT it’s at the top of my Halloween to-do list this week so it definitely counts, right? In honour of the witching hour, Tantrum Doughnuts have released five special edition flavours, delighting foodies all over Glasgow. I really want to try them ALL, but I’m especially excited to taste the charcoal chocolate brownie flavour – possibly while settling down to binge-watch Stranger Things 2

Drive-in Movies at Glasgow Riverside Museum

After hosting a Halloween spooktacular on Saturday night, it doesn’t get better than kicking back with some movies and tasty treats on a Sunday, does it? After last year’s sell-out success, the Riverside Museum is hosting its drive-in movie night once again, showing Ghostbusters and Scream on Sunday 29th October. There’ll also be pop-up refreshments from Thorntonhall Ice Cream and the Street Food Putter Club on the night. See you there?

You don’t HAVE to be in costume to enjoy these activities (though any efforts to dress up will obviously earn you a hi-five from me!) and, with such a wide range, there really is something to suit most people!

Will you be going along to any of these Glasgow Halloween events over the next week or two? And are you planning on watching Stranger Things 2 when it drops on Netflix?
