Sip on scary cocktails or head to the glitter makeover station from 9pm-2am, and dress to impress in a Halloween costume or an 80’s theme ensemble – both are fairly scary. This night is not one to miss!
Camp and Furnace’s hottest Hip Hop and RnB party is also back. Choose a treat over a trick as the Gold Digger event returns for a spook spectacular special –The Dre of the Dead.
