With Halloween falling on a Sunday this year, there’s a whole weekend of ghoulish foodie events to attend. Here are a couple just to get you started.
Head down to the Vauxhall Griffin for their regular Friday night bash – PiE&MASH. It’s a sort of club night, but in a pub. And after 10.15pm, pies are served upstairs in the Ruby Lounge. For Halloween, the theme is Nightmare on Pie Street but the pies are nightmare free.

Browse the Halloween creations at the World’s First 18+ Cake Shop, temporarily housed at Maiden. The pop up shop has been certified 18+ only and is brought to you by The Mad Artists Tea Party and PRETOX Drink Alibi. If you wanted to add something extra special to your treats bowl, there are 666 confectionery items for sale there from 29th – 31st October.

If you have kids though, you might want to wander towards Harrods instead. They have face painting and arts and crafts around the store on 30th – 31st October. There is also pumpkin carving on the 30th, along with foodie tips on how to use up the rest of your pumpkin.
87–135 Brompton Road, Knightsbridge, London, SW1X 7XL www.harrods.com
Load up on food at the Halloween Suppliers Market on Sunday at Inn the Park. It’s only on from noon until 3pm so make sure you’re on time. Some of the best British producers will be attending, producers who usually only supply to restaurants, so it’s a great opportunity to stock on some luxury goodies. There will of course be pumpkin carving, cake decorating and samples from the stalls.
Inn the Park, St James’s Park, SW1A 2BJ
