It’s safe to say 2012 has been a grim year for the gigs and events industry, with the Diamond Jubilee, Olympics, the government talking up the recession and all the wet weather. There’s been a lot going on to distract the event goers from event going.
Halloween is the next big night out on many people’s calendar and search trends and traffic stats from Skiddle.com and Google indicate people are searching in their droves for a bit of fun before Winter really takes hold.
Halloween is a lot of fun, and it’s not really that difficult to arrange a Halloween party, just dress the place up with cobwebs and pumpkins and encourage your guests to wear Halloween costumes, perhaps come up with some interesting Halloween drinks and you can be sure you’re onto a winner.
