The Dark Truth Experience at Mary King’s Close

This special Halloween edition of the ghost walk in Edinburgh is the perfect way to send shivers down your spine (and not just because it’s freezing). Mary King’s Close, once busy and vibrant, was at the heart of Edinburgh back in the 1600s. Now underground after being bricked up due to plague, the hidden closes of Edinburgh are home to tales of horror and mystery.

Beware as organisers issue you with this warning: “On the Close watch your step and your back as you never know what is beneath your feet or who is lurking around the corner. Will you get out the other side unscathed?” Agatha Christie’s ‘And Then There Were None’

The best-selling murder mystery novel of all time is coming to The King’s Theatre in Edinburgh, on Halloween! The story follows a group of 10 strangers who are lured to a remote island off the coast of Devon.

Things get spooky as their host is missing on their arrival, and one by one the guests begin to die. The King’s Theatre in Edinburgh writes: “this dark and captivating tale will thrill and enthral, as murder unfolds”. Who is the killer? Everyone’s a suspect! Halloween tour of Wellpark Brewery

Graffiti artist ‘Pure Evil’ is transforming the High Mill in Dundee for one night only Halloween! We are told to expect “experimental sound scapes” and “light and projected sculpture” which sounds like a truly unique way to spend the evening indeed.

This extra special event is part of the Museums at Night festival, inspiring after hours cultural events across the UK. Samhuinn Fire Festival

This year’s Samhuinn Fire Festival marks the 20th anniversary of the modern twist on the ancient turning of the seasons celebration. For an alternative way to celebrate Halloween, it is held on October 31 in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket. The evening brings festival performers with fire, drums and crazy costumes to the city centre for an evening of revelry, representing the end of summer and rise of winter. There’s no ticket required for the event, but the Beltane Fire Society ask for a donation on the night. Macbeth

film adaptation of the Shakespeare’s Scottish play is in cinemas now, and what better way to celebrate Halloween? Starring Michael Fassbender as Macbeth, the film has received great reviews, and what with the three witches, the ghost of Banquo and all that murder, it seems pretty fitting for a spooky evening out. Visit your nearest cinema’s website for screening times and bookings.
