It’s close to midnight and something evil’s lurking in the dark. Halloween or All Hallows’ Eve has become an increasingly big night in Britain, but if you want to mark it the Skint way, take a look at our top tips.

Everyone’s invited to swing by this Halloween pop-up in Soho. It’s a collaboration between Soho Radio and Jägermeister and they’re giving out FREE post work drinks. We think it’s only one per person, but who knows they might be feeling more generous on the night!
You’ll be able to choose between an ice cold shot or a range of alternatives including Jägermeister Mule (Jägermeister, ginger beer, cucumber and a slice of lime). This will be accompanied by a special Halloween show on Radio Soho to get you in the bewitching mood. Just rock up.
Thurs 31st Oct, 6 – 10pm: FREE Jägermeister
Jäger Soho, 22 Great Windmill St, W1D 7LD
For an evening of FREE spooky entertainment make your way to King’s Cross where the so-called Skeleton Squad will be taking over Granary Square and performing an illuminated dance of the dead. There’ll also be skeleton puppets roaming around and freebie face painting and trick or treats.
Alternatively, if get there early at 5.30pm you can learn the routine and participate yourself., provided you too are in a scary skeleton costume. Best make it a good one as they’ll be awarding prizes for the best dressed.
