**UPDATED** If you love pop culture, Halloween is the best time of the year – FACT! You can dress up as your favourite character, you can binge watch horror, sci-fi and fantasy and it’s socially acceptable, nay encouraged, to watch ALL the scary movies.
Last year we put together a Guide to all the cool Halloween events happening in Scotland and people seemed to really like it! So we are doing the same for 2019, this time pulling together the most interesting Halloween events across the month of October (and a bit of November). Bring on the ghosties and ghoulies and let’s invite in Halloween!
