The Hallowe’en spirit is coming to London City Island and Goodluck Hope in east London this month with a host of ghostly goings on. A walking ghost tour, pumpkin patch pop-up and pumpkin carving workshops will be the highlights of the Halloween celebrations, all taking place on Saturday 31 October.
London City Island’s pumpkin patch, open between 9am-5pm, will both be an Insta-worthy photo-opportunity and a chance to grab yourself your very own pumpkin and carving kit. Photos of carved creations uploaded to Instagram – and tagged and following @ballymore, @ecoworld_uk, and #londoncityisland – stand to win the top treat of a London City Island bicycle.
Led by uber-creative food artist David Bradley, aka The Curious Confectioner, the series of online pumpkin carving classes will take place on Halloween day at 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm. All workshops are free to join and will be accessible via Zoom. We advise all children aged under 16 are accompanied by an adult.
Fearless fun seekers can enjoy a walking ghost tour with a difference at Ballymore’s Goodluck Hope development. Organised in collaboration with comedy walking tour guide, Bullshit London, the walk will combine ‘tongue-in-cheek’ horror with a look at some of the hidden gems of London’s own horrible history. The 20-minute tours will take place from 6pm to 10pm on Saturday 31 October. The tours have been designed to be spooky but COVID-safe, complying with government guidelines. Guests attending walking tours will be asked to remain socially distanced and face masks will be provided.
Tickets for the digital workshops can be booked here.
Tickets for Goodluck Hope’s ghost walking tour cost £7 per person and can be booked here.
20% of all ticket proceeds will be donated to local Poplar charity, Caritas Anchor House.
