Halloween has always been well known as an American tradition, did you know that it is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. Over the years, Halloween has grown in popularity and now covers a variety of different activities, from fancy dress costumes, trick-or-treating, apple bobbing, playing pranks and visiting haunted houses.
Did you know that this ghoulish celebration is now the UK’s second biggest party night after New Year’s Eve. So this Halloween we’re going all out and firmly digging our claws into the hubble bubble holiday.
Themed Halloween displays, which include witches hats, spiders, spider webs, broomsticks, pumpkins, hay bales and much more, can been seen throughout the whole of October in the Lodore Falls Hotel and Borrowdale Hotel in the Borrowdale Valley, the Inn on the Lake at Ullswater and the Inn on the Square in Keswick.
We are also hosting various Halloween parties, which include themed nibbles, eye popping cocktail shots & drink offers, horror movies, prizes for best dressed and a singer, rocking the favourites including monster mash and thriller!
Visit Keswick for the ultimate Halloween experience… Start your night off at the Inn on the Square’s ‘Dead Glamorous Costume & Cocktail Party‘, before heading to the Back Bar’s ‘Twisted Circus Halloween Party’ and then finish the night off at the Loft’s ‘Cabin Fever Halloween Party’
You can also get your spook on in Ullswater as the Inn on the Lake are holding a fantastic fancy dress Halloween Disco in Rambler’s Bar. But the questions is… can you survive the dance fever?
So don your witch’s hat and join in the celebrations…
