Rooms – Veuve Clicquot’s Widow Series 

The Champagne brand’s Widow Series returns for a second Halloween from 27-28 October. Titled 'Rooms', the experience is a 12-room installation based on the 12 zodiac signs. Singer-songwriter FKA Twigs has written and created the experience alongside 12 artists who have each transformed one of the rooms based on their starsign. A cast of 30 will tell the story of a character who is searching for their spiritual and zodiac home. The experience is inspired by the brand's founder, Madame Clicquot. Veuve Cliquot has also teamed up with Manchester-based bar Australasia to produce a haunted haven for Halloween.

When: 27-28 October

Where: Secret location in Shoreditch

El Jimador's Dark Circus Party

Tequila brand El Jimador is to present an immersive circus-themed evening, titled 'Dark Circus Party'.

When: 29 October

Where: Bourne & Hollingsworth, Clerkenwell
