Dress scary for The Big Halloween at Capital E

Get ready to dress scary and spooky because The Big Halloween at Capital E is just weeks away. This year The Big Halloween is going all Twisted Circus, with magically macabre entertainers all ready to scare and surprise. Taking place on Friday 31 October The Big Halloween will be a fully immersive and hugely enjoyable family experience. Come prepared!

Greeting everyone at Capital E will be the Circus Ringmaster who will set everyone off on their Twisted Circus journey. There will be extraordinary Sideshow Entertainers – see the Bearded Lady, Leo The Lion-faced Boy and the Strong Man. On the half hour, astonishing floor shows will take place including some unbelievable contortionist antics. Performing throughout will be the wonderfully unhinged Twisted Circus Band.

To exit Capital E everyone will have to brave the Hall of Oddities, a gallery of mystery and fright, where the Vampire Vanquishing Kit resides and unexplainable alien remains can be seen. Frights guaranteed…

The spectacularly freaky Twisted Circus will also spill out from Capital E and take over Civic Square, which will be brimming with exciting performers and attractions. There will be dazzling aerial displays by Fuse Productions, creators of the popular Heavenly Burlesque, and right in the middle of Civic Square will be an incredible 3-storey Crazy Circus Fun House, which children will want to explore and experience many times.

And where would Halloween be without some mysterious Trick or Treat Doors – who will be behind them? Will it be the fairy princess, or is it time to be met by the dreaded scary witch?

Capital E is famous for its fun and freaky Halloween celebrations. The Big Halloween is a much-anticipated family event, providing a safe way for young people and their families to get together and thoroughly enjoy this spooky night.

Remember: Dress Scary and Come Prepared!

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>
