Looking for something unique to do this Halloween? After a sell-out tour in 2018 the Festival of the Dead returns to the O2 Academy on 1st November for a unique evening of unadulterated partying inspired by the art of The Day of the Dead.

Combining elements of circus, theatre and carnival, guests are invited to ‘come dressed in your deathly best’ for an exciting evening of DJ’s and live music, acrobat and circus performers, giant skull processions, professional skull face painting, beautiful decorative art & costumes, a confetti, co2 and light show, dancers, crazy characters and breath-taking action, all set to an epic soundtrack.

The Festival of the Dead said:

“For the last four years we’ve created a completely new show and toured it across the UK with our incredible performers, musicians, acrobats and resident lunatics to deliver an experience quite like nothing else.”

Over 85,000 people have attended the event in the last four years, hosted at different venues around the UK during their annual national tour. Described as ‘The most imaginative, immersive and out-right wicked club events,’ this is a Halloween celebration not to be missed!
