Halloween might still be just over a month away, but that doesn't mean you need to wait to prepare for the festivities.
Throughout the month of October you will find a few spine-tingling events to get you all ready for the night of Halloween. Here are some of your upcoming spooky options.
The Hollow in Hobart
If you like theatre and love scary stories, then head to the Playhouse Theatre in Tasmania from October 25-November 9.
The performances of The Hollow, directed by Roger Chevalier, are perfectly timed to get you riled up for Halloween.
Step into the world of this Agatha Christie work and if you haven't seen it before, try to solve the murder mystery yourself along the way.
On Halloween night itself, October 31, head to the Grand Chancellor Hotel in Hobart for a performance by the Tasmania Symphony Orchestra.
Performing a 'Trick or Treat' show, there will be plenty of ghoulish musical numbers such as Danse Macabre, the March of the Trolls and music from the Vampire. This is fun for the whole family and will set the scene for the eerie night ahead.
The Halloween Ball
The city of Launceston is hosting an RSPCA Halloween Ball and it's sure to be a spooky spectacle.
This event is set to take place at the beautiful Tamar Valley Resort, so you know that the night will be well spent.
Keep in mind this is an adult's event. Activities of the night include live entertainment and music, cocktail style food and desserts, a photo booth, plenty of drinks on hand and of course a costume competition – so dress up as your favourite monster, witch or ghoul!
Tickets to the event include entry, bus transfers from Launceston to the resort and all the entertainment that awaits you inside, so they are great value. You can even get on-site accommodation if you wish.
Make sure you reserve Saturday October 26 for this fun-filled event, and start to get your costume sorted!
