Halloween Weekend at World HQ

As it’s an all weekend Spookathon, we made a little ‘Spooklet,’ rather than a flyer this year…


Day one Of our Halloween Spookathon today, Friday, has sold out it’s online allocation. There are now just 50 spaces left which we will sell on the door on a first come, first served basis. Doors open at 10.30 pm. If you miss out you may be able to get after 1 am as people who have been out early start to drift home. We are open with full bar until 5 am. Shake, party Hip -Hop & R&B event, which is run by some of our good chums & is on downstairs this Friday. Has now also sold out.

Don’t forget, that due to demand, this year we are running our Halloween capers all weekend…. Click this link for full details of Saturday night, which closes our Spookathon Click here to purchase online tickets for  Saturday.

For the benefit of people who have never been to out Halloween events before, we shoot little you tube movies every year… Click here to see the crazy little movie of what went down last year, when as always, it was a hoot, with loads of bananas costumes. Click here to see the movie of the year before.

Saturday night we also have Lively Up downstairs presenting the incredible General Levy.

If you take a peek at the bottom of the Stuff We Like section, you can marvel at all the fab costumes going back across the years. You know the deal with us, you gotta be here x


Everything you could possibly want to know about World HQ is on this site, as well as extra info on the best bits of Newcastle & a myriad of other stuff we think is astonishing, cool & worthwhile.

There is news on the forthcoming development of our new floor, stuff about monkeys & our multiracial groove. We also feature a ton of reviews of other cool places & stuff about Newcastle life that you may find useful, if you’re dropping in from out of town, or visiting this weekend with your fly chums.
