Please note that this is the 2018 Halloween Guide! Our 2019 Guide launches on Friday 13th September and can be found here
Since we launched The GeekList back in March we have been dyyying to get to October? Why? Because it has the most pop-culturey holiday of them all of course, HALLOWEEN! Vampires, werewolves, ghosts, fantasy and fun – all of things that we at The GeekList worship and adore.
This List will be the biggest one we have compiled yet with as many Halloween events as we can squeeze in (and updated right up to the night itself). It’s a HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR! Mwahahahahaha…..
