5 Ways To Celebrate Halloween At Uni

5 Ways To Celebrate Halloween At Uni - Caro 5 Ways To Celebrate Halloween At Uni

Unless you’ve got younger siblings, your days of ‘Trick or Treating’ are probably long gone. But that’s not to say can’t get involved in spooky antics this October!

There are lots of cheap and cheerful things you can do to make October 31st extra special this year – both at your student accommodation and out and about in Liverpool.

Here are just some of our top suggestions…

1.    Go pumpkin picking

Whether you’re doing it for the ‘gram or excited to put your carving skills to the test, it’s worth visiting one of the many pumpkin patches near Liverpool this autumn.

For example, the Pumpkin Patch in Hightown (near Formby) is famous for its huge pumpkins and magnificent maze. Admission and parking are free, and there’s no need to book. You simply pick your perfect pumpkin, pay for it, and take it home to carve.

With wheelbarrows to collect your pumpkins, hot and cold refreshments, an ice cream van, and fairground rides, Church View Farm also promises a fun-filled day out, no matter how old you are! There’s no booking or entry fee required either – just choose a day that’s good for you and your mates and pay for what you pick.

2.    Organise a spooktacular movie marathon

Fancy dress not really your thing? Too skint to afford tickets for some of the city’s spookiest events this October? Well, grab some popcorn and buckle up to watch some horror films on Netflix.

Hocus Pocus, The Addams Family, Friday the 13th, and Halloweentown are some of our personal favourites – guaranteed to get you in the mood for Halloween. And the best bit is, you won’t have to change out of your pyjamas or worry about paying for a cab back to your student accommodation in Liverpool.

3.    Make festive treats

If you’re hosting a Halloween party or pre-drinks at your student accommodation, why not have a go at making some super scary cocktails for your friends?

A Bloody Mary is perfect for the spooky season. To spice things up a little, you could serve drinks in plastic syringes instead of standard shot glasses or plastic party cups. Cheers, witches!

You could also provide a selection of ghoulish (yet scrumptious) treats. We recommend vampire cookies, chocolate eyeballs, ghost-like marshmallows, and pick and mix gummy teeth with fangs – just in case anyone gets peckish.

4.    Decorate your student accommodation

Even if you aren’t throwing a Halloween party at your student accommodation in Liverpool, who’s to say you can’t get into the festive spirit with a few seasonal decorations?

If you can’t be trusted with candles and wax melts, consider buying a reed diffuser from your local supermarket – preferably one with an autumnal scent like cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin spice, or spiced chai.

Another great way to decorate your student digs is to place pumpkins in each room. These can be real or fake, carved or uncarved. Or perhaps you’d like to create your own haunted house with a hanging skeleton, fake cobwebs and ghost fairy lights.

5.    Arrange a night out

From spooky games of bingo with fantastic prizes up for grabs to warehouse parties and live music events in authentic bars, there is plenty to see and do in Liverpool this Halloween.

Head on down to Punch Tarmey’s in the Baltic Triangle and enjoy some bevvies and funky house tunes with your friends.

With plenty of entertainment and a lively atmosphere, Camp and Furnace is the place to go for the ultimate Halloween party this October.

However you decide to celebrate 31st October, enjoy yourself and stay safe.

Always let someone know where you’re going – even if it’s to the loo, outside for some air, or back to your student accommodation in Liverpool. Never accept a drink from strangers either, as you can’t guarantee they haven’t spiked it.
