Halloween is arguably the best holiday of the year. If you’re a parent, it’s an excuse to dress your little monsters up and show them how fun the spooky holiday can be. If you aren’t, it’s a great excuse to go out, have a laugh, and drink a bit too much. And adding daft costumes to the mix so you can embarrass yourself and bully your mates a bit multiplies the fun. 

So if you’re looking for some banging Halloween events, here are the best Halloween events in Leeds this year! 


Beaver Works Halloween Rave

When: Friday 27th October 2023

Where: Beaver Works in Leeds

Over 70 artists and performers, including Eksman, Phibes, DJ SS, Deadbeat, Soulecta, and Yemi, will descend on the venue to gift you a Halloween to remember. More than just banging tunes, there’ll also be creepy thrills like Terry Atha's fairground rides, a spider room, the Squid Game Coffin Boiler Basement, the pumpkin tent, and a ghost train.

Big Mad Andy's Peep Show Quiz - Leeds


When: Saturday 28th October 2023

Where: The Belgrave Music Hall And Canteen in Leeds

“If you don’t punch me, I’ll drink this paint. This is really cheap and nasty paint!” 

Not everyone wants a late-night raving followed by a beefy headache the next morning. So instead why not go to a quiz based on one of the best British TV shows of all time, hosted by one of the recurring characters? 

Fans of the show will remember painter and decorator Big Mad Andy (Liam Noble) from the times he tried to drink paint, broke the door that he almost finished mending for Mark and Jez, and his generally unnerving aura. 

Test your knowledge, win prizes, and have a laugh with your mates.
