Halloween

Halloween in Havering and Beyond

Halloween is fast approaching and there are so many great events running in Havering and beyond. We want to make it as easy as possible to find what you are looking for so we have made some lists and they all have links!

Take a look at our pick of the crop below!

🎃Halloween & Half Term Events - we have created a list of our 'best picks' of the days out, events and places to visit. You can see the full 'What's On' guide here.

🎃Frightening Fun, Ghoulish Games & Scary Snacks - if you plan to spend some of half term at home, it's always a good idea to have some ideas up your sleeve!

Christmas

 

Christmas 2021

Christmas is fast approaching and as always we will be keeping you up to date with all that's happening in and around the Romford area. 

Where to see Santa 2021

It may seem very early to be talking about seeing Santa but we know that some venues have already sold out of tickets for their events and some only have a limited tickets still available. 

Santa, Father Christmas, St Nicholas - whatever he is known as in your house, the little ones all love him!  There are lots of options available this year where you can see Santa. We are updating this page regularly as new information is available.  While most venues have now lifted restrictions, some events will be running a little differently to previous years in efforts to keep the public, and Santa, as safe as possible. Take some time to check details before you make a booking to ensure that the event is suitable for you and your family.
