Can you smell it in the air? The faded scent of sparklers, dodgy characters collecting wood from wherever possible and the tackiest costume shops popping up all over the city – it’s HALLOWEEN. It is simply my favorite time of year, and I know I’m not alone! Where my spooky witches at?
Due to it being such a highlight of our year, H&G always feel the need to throw a stunningly scary party for all our creative family. This year, we have organised a bigger festival than ever before in a haunted mansion. Themed on the mischievous fox of Japanese Folklore, Kitsune, H&G will be paying gratitude to her femininity, fierce presences and bad-ass nature. Be ready to be spun to the far east, where neon lights will take hold of your vision, and our juicy line-up will have you BOPPING.
As you all know, at H&G we try to offer a little more than your b.a.s.i.c night out. To adhere to our desires, we have created a room of spectacle and surprises including a secret cinema, cuddle puddle, light installations, massage and wellness center and last but not least immersive performance!
Introducing, Monsieur Pompier’s Travelling Freakshow!
Freaks, ghost stories, synthesized chaos, whirling waltzes and a cat whose party piece is to pull out her own intestines.
What did you dress up as last year for Halloween?
Last year I dressed up as a fictional character of my own invention called King Strawb. The story of how that character came to be is long and convoluted but basically he was a giant strawberry wearing a crown…
I’ve been to a few of H&G’s parties over the years, here’s a video of me and my friends drunkenly dancing at a masked ball many winters ago:
Any DJing highlights of this year so far?

Yes! Well, kind of;
