5 of our Scariest Halloween Themed Entertainment Ideas
With Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to think about when you’ll buy your pumpkins, dust off the box of costumes and start brainstorming your Halloween party ideas. We all know how to decorate a venue for a Halloween party and the shops are full of the stuff from late September. However, one of the biggest challenges is booking the best entertainment for a Halloween party. How will you make your Halloween themed event memorable?
A brief history of Halloween
The origins of Halloween are still somewhat unclear but vastly rumoured to originate from an old Celtic end of harvest festival called Samhain, when ghosts and spirits crossed over into our world for one night. Through many years of evolution and commercialism, the 31st October is now celebrated heavily throughout the Western world and is a great excuse to dress up in a scary costume and host a spooktacular party.
Despite not becoming a popular celebration in America until the late 19th century, Halloween is now the second largest commercial celebration after Christmas, and it’s a multi-billion dollar industry. With this in mind, it is always worth going the extra mile to impress and the best way to do so is to find some scary Halloween entertainment to give your guests shock.
We have chosen five of our favourite Scary Halloween Entertainment options to give your guests a fright:
Anyone who is familiar with any of the iconic Japanese horror films such as The Ring and The Grudge knows that if you see a petite Asian girl with old fashioned clothes and long black hair, it will give you shivers down your spine. This incredible Indonesian magician and illusionist creates terrifying stage shows based around the mystical and supernatural. As a true testament to how good this scary entertainment option is, she is the winner of Asia’s Got Talent and a quarter-finalist of America’s Got Talent.

No Halloween party is complete without music and we don’t mean spooky organ music or atmospheric graveyard sounds. Our Scary Musical Show is an original musical theatre production that takes its inspiration from Tim Burton, the ultimate creepy family-friendly entertainment pioneer.
