Halloween is coming to town…
Halloween is set to be a big annual event in Keswick this year with 3 of the town’s most popular venues hosting a Halloween party. Over the years Halloween has grown in popularity in the UK, due to the increasing quantity of ghoulish fancy dress outfits and grisly goods on offer, as well as US scary films and sitcoms, making the festival the third biggest money-spinning event in the UK calendar after Christmas and Easter.
Retailers are forecast to enjoy a £330m boost from the event, up 3.5% on last year according to analysts at Planet Retail. “It represents remarkable growth when compared to the £12m value of the UK Halloween goods market in 2001,” the analysts’ report said. So get carving the pumpkins and don your witch’s hat, as Halloween 2015 is expected to be the biggest we’ve ever seen.
Lake District Hotels Ltd are going all out for Halloween this year, by offering 3 different types of Halloween parties which include themed nibbles, eye popping cocktail shots & drink offers, horror movies, prizes for best dressed, fire eaters outside the Back Bar and a singer, rocking the favourites including monster mash and thriller!
Dani Hope, Marketing Director of Lake District Hotels commented, “The annual Halloween party at the Loft Nightclub in Keswick is one of our most popular events. This year we wanted to offer locals and visitors to the area the chance to get the party started early, by gathering 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 finishing the night off at the Loft’s ‘Heaven vs Hell Halloween Party’. All of our staff are really looking forward to thinking of new fun and frightening things for our party guests to see and do.”
