Halloween in Coventry

Halloween, Coventry, What's On

As the nights draw in and the cold mornings return, it’s time for the ghostly ghouls and wicked witches to emerge for the creepy Halloween season.

The supermarket shelves are piled high with outfits, decorations, and the perfect Halloween snacks – but how can you celebrate Halloween here in Coventry? 

Here at Visit Coventry, we’ve compiled some of the best events taking place over the coming few days for the entire family to enjoy.  

Join Dr. Frankenstein for the grand unveiling of a secret laboratory at Coventry’s medieval Old Grammar School for a no-holds-barred immersive theatrical and food experience, Nightmares and Nibbles. Designed for adults only, this lab and clinic explore the properties of the human body and soul, creating miracle cures for those daring to try this selection of tasty yet gruesome delights. A darkly humorous buffet will slay your hunger pangs whilst experimental cocktail concoctions will unleash your inner monster. An atmospheric set will feature historic taxidermy from The Herbert’s collection! Book online here.  

Fancy an adventure outdoors? Join Go Ape for fun and frights with the family this Halloween. Thrill seekers are being invited to run, leap, fly or cling their way through a new night-time adventure, coming exclusively to Go Ape Coventry. Those looking for an out-of-the-ordinary, after-hours experience this Autumn should look no further than the limited-edition Go Ape Sundown Series, where you can enjoy the high ropes of Go Ape Coventry under the cover of darkness. Question is, do you dare enter the woods after nightfall? Book now to avoid disappointment. 

Celebrate Halloween with all the family at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum. You’ll be able to create spooktacular crafts as part of Festival of the Dead celebrations. You can make Day of the Dead Windsocks, Sugar Skull Jars, Painted Festival Eye Masks and so much more! Activities are designed for age 3+, but all are welcome! 

The FarGo Halloween Makers Market is back again for another spooky spectacular of creepy crafters! Head to FarGo on Saturday 26 October for the best designers and artists around - but spooktacular! Why not create your very own treat in one of the chocolate workshops? The Halloween Makers Market brings some horror to your homemade! Expect everything from the perfect spooky accessories for your home, gifts, and themed treats just for you. Also joining FarGo to create a fun filled Halloween weekend, is another fab pop up from our faves at FarGo Dining Club, and the Halloween Family Fest. Book your tickets in advance! 

Escape Reality have uniquely themed experiences, perfect for Halloween! Thriller fans might choose to experience what it’s like to roam the abandoned halls of ‘The Asylum’. ‘Murder in Whitechapel’ will transport you back to 1800s Victorian London where you will get the chance to become a detective trying to catch a serial killer before they strike again. Horror fans may choose to get locked in ‘Scarlett’, which has some creepy dolls in waiting. Not for the faint hearted! Lastly, if you have ever wondered what it’s like to be locked up in a prison, we have recreated the infamous Alcatraz. Even though it’s an escape room in Coventry, the question is, will your prison break be successful? Immerse yourself this Halloween in a battle to escape; bring along your mates and see if you can beat the clock! 

Whatever you get up to this Halloween, we hope you enjoy a fantastic time – keep checking back to Visit Coventry for events throughout the coming months.
