Halloween is approaching in the next couple of weeks, and events and plans are starting to pop up all over Scotland as means to celebrate. Whether you’re looking to dress up and party or for family-friendly fun, Scotland always offers extravagant Halloween events in abundance. Here are our top 5 things to do for Halloween in Scotland.
1. Terminal V – Edinburgh - Saturday 29 - Sunday 30 October 2022
Terminal V Halloween returns for the 1st time in 3 years to the huge halls of The Royal Highland Centre.
On Saturday, October 29th, running from midday to midnight, expect a monstrous strictly indoors all-day festival and an incredible line-up of global acts and mind-bending production over our many stages.
Dressing up is highly encouraged, and you can expect some extremely spooky decorations and themes throughout the event. We’d recommend this event to younger people looking for a more intense party to celebrate Halloween, and recommend wrapping up warm in anticipation of queues.
