25th October 2019

With Halloween just around the corner, you may be feeling stuck with your costume ideas or drawing a blank on which activities you can conjure up with your friends or family.  

So … to make things easier, we thought we would help you out and provide you with lots of choices for this spooky season.


There are loads of creative recipes online that show you how to make yummy spooky treats ranging from ‘Ghoulish Halloween cupcakes’, ‘Halloween punch’ and even ‘Pumpkin hummus’. Here are some of our favourites we found.
If you would like to try making some of these awesome recipes, click here! Or, if you would like to view the catering courses we offer, you can find out more on our Hospitality and Catering page! 


This can be a tricky one to get right, but don’t stress yourself out about it. Halloween is all about fun, so just take some time to research some of your favourite characters and films and then see how other people have recreated them. Don’t forget that you can always put your own spin on things to make it your own or if you prefer a step by step tutorial- then YouTube will become your best friend.
To give you a starting point, we have put together some of our favourite looks we have found online. 


Now this one is something that you are going to want to practice. There is nothing fun about getting ready on Halloween and then you ruin or mess up your makeup. So make sure you test out the waters so you know the areas you need to work on or even get rid of all together. To give you some inspiration check out these Halloween makeup ideas, which also includes some of our students – don’t they look Spooktacular!

If you don’t fancy going outside and you want a cosy night in, then you can still get into the Halloween spirit by watching scary movies. 

There are so many to choose from:



Make sure you keep your diary free because there are many scary events to give you a fright. 

. Harry Potter Studios- New Dark Arts section
. Thorpe Park - Fright Night
. The London Dungeon- SCREAMFEST
. The Addams Family In Concert
.  Broadditch Farm- Broadwitch Hauntfest

We will also be having our very own Halloween event at the College for our students. On Wednesday 31st, October our students will be able to have a Halloween Make-up design by our Media Make-up artists, which will cost £2.00 a student and all the proceeds will be going to charity. 

We hope our blog has given you some inspiration and has helped you get into the Halloween spirit. Let us know if you are going to use any of our tips from our blog or tell us what you will be doing this Halloween. We hope you all have a wonderful time celebrating the spooky season and from everyone at NKC… HAPPY HALLOWEEN and STAY SPOOKY!
