The scariest date of the year is almost upon us and here at Tti we really enjoy our Halloween celebrations. The school has already been decorated and we are busy selling tickets for our party which will take place next Thursday 29th October. 

The administration team thought we would put together our top ten tips to help you get your Halloween Celebrations in London right, including where to party and how to out a great costume together!
Spooky eyes!

Spooky eyes!

1. Buy a ticket to Tti´s Halloween Party on 29th October. You are guaranteed a great night and a great start to a weekend of spooky fun!
2. You can put a great costume together without spending too much money. Why not check out one of the many charity shops in Camden? With a little bit of imagination a boring black dress can be turned into a great witches costume! Here are some of the shops worth checking out in Camden: Sue Ryder, Oxfam, British Heart Foundation 
3. The 99p shop and Poundland are both a great source of cheap face paints and some ready made accessories such as hats, masks and nasty nails. Both shops can be found on Camden High Street
4. If you really want to make an impression and spend a bit more money then Camden is home to London´s best and biggest costume store! Check out Escapade on Chalk Farm Road but be sure to go early as it is very popular at this time of year and the queues can get quite long!

One of our staff members headed down to Party Escapades to try out some of their amazing costumes! Do you recognise which admin team member this is???

5. Go on a ghost tour! There are plenty that you can join in London. How about a trying out one at the Museum of London Docklands? There’s a Halloween special on Saturday October 31when tours will run until 2am. After that there are more chances to ghost hunt during November. Book in advance.
6. Once you’ve got your costume sorted, you’re going to need to be able to talk about all things Halloween! There are lots of vocabulary games on the internet; matching pairs, word searches and crossword puzzles. Follow this link to take you to some: http://www.esolcourses.com/topics/halloween.html
7. Then to really freak yourself out, and to practise your listening skills, why not watch a horror film?! Here’s a link to watch the trailer of one of my favourites: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PewtQsgN5uo  It’s a vintage film from the 60’s, but if you prefer something more modern- they made a remake last year!
8.Mel recommends visiting Highgate Cemetery!  After the party, go and visit the East Cemetery which is the best-known part of Highgate Cemetery  -Karl Marx is buried there among other famous celebrities.  There will be an East Cemetery candle-lighting late opening for All Saints’ Evening on Sunday the 1st of November.  Tickets will be £4!
