Party this Halloween at the Book Club on Saturday 31st October and watch a showing of the cult classic ‘The Craft’ followed by a themed club night. Return to the 90’s sleepovers of your teens and think goth-rock, love potions and Neve Campbell.

There will also be make-up artists on hand with lashings of kohl eyeliner and lipstick, and a photo booth stationed for spooky snaps throughout the night.

The film is from 6 pm – 8 pm (free but limited capacity – entry guaranteed for advance ticket holders only) / Club night 8 pm – 3 am and £5 in advance or £5/£7/£9 on the door.
