The team behind boutique festival Winterwell are hosting a truly terrifying Victorian-themed Halloween party this Saturday (30 October) at Village Underground in Shoreditch.

With live cabaret performances, music and DJs, revellers will be transported back through the mists of time to a London where dangers lurked on every street corner and murderers haunted Scotland Yard.

Guests will be encouraged to participate in a range of dastardly activities; from a visit to Dr Jekyll’s lab to being shaved by Sweeney Todd. Only the bravest of the brave will be able to face certain perils, such as eating an infamous pie from Mrs Miggins’ kitchen.

Visit London blog readers have the chance to win a pair of tickets to Winterwell’s Halloween Party in London. Simply email winterwell@hotmail.co.uk with “Visit London blog giveaway” in the subject bar and tell us what Halloween costume you’re planning to wear in the comments below.

Enter if you dare!

Entries close at 10am Friday 29 October. The winner will be notified via email.

The feelgood musical is packed full of music, dancing, jokes and magic and is suitable for kids of all ages.

Visit London is giving away 10 family tickets (2 adults, 2 kids per ticket) to any performance of Go! Go! Go! in August.

  • All of Grace Kelly’s films including Hitchcock’s Rear Window
  • A Fistful of Dollars starring Clint Eastwood
  • Kubrick classic A Clockwork Orange
  • Eco thriller Soylent Green with Charlton Heston
  • Tilda Swinton’s latest I Am Love
  • Manga movie Ghost In the Shell 2: Innocence

Lucky for you, BFI is offering 10 pairs of tickets to any film during their June and July seasons to celebrate their alternative to the world cup campaign. And we want to know, what’s your World Cup alternative?

Leave a comment below and email filmcompetitions@bfi.org.uk with Visit London World Cup in the subject by Friday 25 June to win.
