The George Tapps, on Old Christchurch in Bournemouth, is preparing for fright night. The pub has begun decorating already – a cobweb here, a creepy crawly there – readying themselves for a week-long celebration that General Manager, Daniel Niedbalski and the team, are dubbing ‘Hallo-week’.
Daniel is encouraging customers to come along to the pub in fancy dress throughout the festivities, assuring them their scary guises will not be out of place from Friday 26th October all the way to Sunday 4th November.
The pub has secured some scarily good offers on some of their most popular brews – with Strongbow getting in on the fun with its CarnEvil promotion, giving customers the chance to win some spooky props, like the infamous ‘All-Seeing Eye Patch’. On top of this, Halloween’s unofficial ale, Hobgoblin, will be available for just £1.99.
Both weekends – either side of the Hallowed Eve – will be dedicated to some FANG-tastic fun with party nights organised to encourage revellers in their witching ways. WKD cauldrons will be available for potions, in some frightening flavours, including Vampire Blood, The Purple Nightmare and Jaws and spine chillingly cold Jägermeister will also be on offer.
“Who doesn’t like Halloween?” said Daniel, “I personally look forward to it every year – and this year, we’ve got two weekends of SPOOK-tacular entertainment to enjoy. We’re excited to see all the weird and wonderful costumes our customers come up with – they never let us down with their frightening creativity!”
