Dress Code – Dress to evoke ENVY and perhaps a little lascivious LUST. Halloween is the opportunity to consult the darkest recesses of your imagination on what sinister fiend you secretly desire to be (albeit for just 24 hours).

Some recommendations include: fairy tale creatures, pagan gods, possessed, beasts kings, dukes, knights, suicides, lunatics, poisoners, cut-throats, gallows-birds, procuresses, geishas, jailers, cardsharpers, hangmen, informers, traitors, seducers and vampires.

And for a further injection of inspiration, please inspect our pinterest page and / or gallery for photographs of our previous Halloween parties.
