Scotland’s biggest and best family Halloween party is back on Friday, October 31 at Glasgow Science Centre. There is no pass the parcel or pin the tail on the donkey at this party but there are plenty of treats and definitely some tricks in store. From wicked workshops and awesome autopsies to gruesome games and creepy critters – party goers are in for a spooktacular evening.

Roll up, roll up for the theatre of horrors and prepare to be scared in the hideous, and hilarious, Monster Science Show! There are hair-raising tales in the depths of the planetarium as you take a journey to the underworld. There are live autopsies in the BodyWorks exhibition where you can get hands on if you can stomach it! The Mad Scientist is having a Slime Time in his lab and you can make your own goo to take home! Plus, get Caught Red Handed when you leave your bloody mark on the Science Centre

Venture into the Tower base and take on the undead in the Zombie Apocalypse, see the climax of the social media Fear Factor Challenge, get up close and personal with some creepy critters and our friends at Glasgow University will also be hosting a Zombie Buffet where you can see a brain and parasites!

Little angels and demons will be able to have some hands on Halloween fun including their own friendly Halloween bat, getting hands on in the Goo Zone and making their own spooky shadow puppet.

Dress to impress as there are great prizes to be won with our fancy dress competitions. Polish your vampire fangs, dust off your cobweb coat and strut your stuff down our Costume Catwalk! Plus every child will receive their very own goody bag to take home! Stephen Breslin, chief Executive at Glasgow Science Centre said:

“I am really looking forward to the Halloween party. Last year almost two thousand guisers from all over the country came on the night and it always has a great fun family filled atmosphere. All our staff look forward to thinking of new fun and frightening things for our party guests to see and do. The Halloween Fright Nights sells out every year so if you are planning to come along, please get your tickets as soon.”

There are lots of activities for all the family at the party, from little devils to big monsters, so make this Halloween a memorable one, safe in the knowledge that your kids will be indoors, warm, dry and in the company of hundreds of other guisers.

Tickets cost £6 per skull (man, woman or child) and can be purchased online at
