Every autumn a frightening fever sweeps the nation from its biggest cities to its smallest towns. It’s the annual opening of eerie exhibitions, haunted houses, creepy mazes and frightening fairs. Haunted zoo’s and decrepit grave yards re-create scary scenes and tales of terror for chill seekers to enjoy. Here at StudentUniverse we have come up with the ultimate places to visit in the UK for a bloody Halloween.
Halloween Film Workshop, Kent
Make this Halloween different. Why not work with professional actors and crew, and star as zombies in a special Halloween movie. Ravensbridge Film is running a workshop, where you’ll learn about film-making alongside all the fun of dressing up as the living dead.
