Things To Do This Weekend
Updated on 31 October 2019

This weekend, venture outside at your peril and beware of things that go bump in the night. It's a spooky weekend, where ghosts and ghouls come out to scare us for Halloween, and if that is your thing then there are lots of ways you can mix and mingle with the creatures from the unknown. Dress up in your favourite scary costume, head out and make sure you don't get frightened. If Halloween scares you it doesn't mean you have to bury your head under the pillow till the weekend is over, there are loads of other less ghoulish things to do to get you out and about, from cinema screenings, to fashion shows, a huge Bollywood festival and for those after a bargain or two ... the 3 Day Super Sale. There literally is something for everyone and no reason to stay hidden away.
