We are finally in the spookiest month of the year and that can only mean one question for all of us to be asking ourselves: What are we going to do for Halloween this year? Fortunately, Cardiff has so many different events this year across a variety of dates for us to celebrate the scariest night of the year. I have combed through some of the different Halloween events for you to choose from!
1. Students’ Union: Of course, we have our classic Students’ Union night out. The only problem we face is what day are we celebrating Halloween? Do we celebrate the weekend before? The Wednesday of? Who knows, but here is the list of all our Students’ Union nights out this month so you can be prepared: https://www.cardiffstudents.com/whatson/bars-club/
2. Students’ Union Halloween Play Zone: This is a new event for me, but you can bet I am impressed! The Students’ Union are putting together an after-dark play zone, it’s all about finding your inner child with vodka slushies and an adult sized play park!

7. The New Movie, ‘Halloween’ – if you cannot wait for Halloween to get started, there is a currently a new movie out called Halloween. Screening now, make sure you get down to Cardiff City Centre and get your spook on.
Halloween is not for the faint-hearted. I cannot wait to get dressed up and ward off the ghosts. You can guarantee there will be some pumpkin carving involved in there somewhere too. Lidl has already stocked some pumpkins, so make sure you get all your housemates involved. Let me know what you decide to do for Halloween this year and what you will be dressing up as!
Happy Halloween Everyone.
