We all have that friend who can’t just celebrate their birthday over the space of an evening – there has to be dinner, drinks and activities that go on for days after the actual event. When it comes to Halloween, Queen of Hoxton is that friend – but we think we’ll forgive them because their wild line up of Halloween-themed events caters to everyone, and neon life drawing sounds way better than the forced fun of a bottomless birthday brunch.
Just Juice Carnival of the Dead
This Halloween, Just Juice and Queen of Hoxton will be bringing the crazy décor and over the top production that they’re known for to new levels with their Mexican ‘Day of the Dead’-themed carnival. Expect candy skulls and tequila everywhere. Musically speaking, the basement will be more of a ‘bassment’, hosted by residents Silas and Snare with two amazing guests: Amy Becker (Acrylic) and Swing Ting feat. MC Fox. Melt Out Crew will host their carnival brand of Hip-hop, Garage, House and more on the ground floor and in their new room, Gin & Juice resident Elwood will provide a mix of party music.
When? 27th October, 8pm-2am
Halloween Neon Naked Life Drawing
If you thought neon paint was the preserve of Freshers’ parties, think again. Queen of Hoxton is hosting life drawing with a difference. Incorporating fluorescent pastels, attendees are taught a number of different artistic techniques from continuous line to pointillism to bring the UV-glowing models to life on the page. Try saying radioactive fluoro zombie after a couple of cocktails…
When? 29th October, 7.30-9.30pm
Glee Club Halloween Special
Halloween may fall on a school night this year, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t fun to be had. Led by Sara Templeman, Queen of Hoxton’s Glee Club is a weekly singalong for guests to drop into, and as its Halloween, you can expect some spooky classics! All together now: I put a spell on you…
