Halloween is one of the best nights in the year for going out. Period.  You get to dress up (or down), go out with your friends and everyone is equally as excited (and drunk!) Yeah sure a house party sounds like a good idea, but Bristol is home to some of the best nights out as it is, so a night like Halloween is a real treat ( or trick! Sorry.) Here are just some of the things you guys can get up to this weekend.



  1. In:Motion The blast X Halloween

The home of all that is big, bad and brilliant in Bristol, Motion boasts an impressive Halloween line up. Toddla T, Shy FX, Chimpo, Nicky Blackmarket, and more are set to entertain you whilst you dance the night away. Think high ceilings, an impressive smoking deck and loud, loud music.

  • Tickets: £16.50

  • Doors open: 10:00pm – 6:00am


  1.  The Halloween Ball at Hilton, Doubletree, Bristol South

If you’re after something a little more quiet, but equally as ghoulish then why not try the Halloween Ball at Hilton? The annual Ball is back by popular demand and features a 3 course Halloween themed meal, coffee and local fudge and Disco until 1am. An ideal Halloween style first date? You be the judge of that.
