Kicking off Halloween celebrations will be the return of Covent Garden's giant pumpkin display.

This year, the ultimate spooky selfie-spot is inspired by the fairy-tale of Cinderella's pumpkin carriage and will be surrounded by over 20 different types of British grown plants, autumnal foliage and a selection of smaller pumpkins. Weighing over 2000lbs, the pumpkin will be available to view in the Market Building's South Wells from Wednesday 16th October until Sunday 3rd November.


Love at First Bite

This Halloween some of Covent Garden's best-loved eateries will be spookifying their menus and celebrating the occasion with a scream.

Head to the Ivy Market Grill's 'Haunted House' on Thursday 31st October for spooky surprises (both inside and out!), featuring a very special limited-edition dessert 'Melting Witches Hat' (available 31st October only) and cocktail 'Midnight Martini' (available 24th October - 3rd November). Don't miss Frenchie's 'Delica Pumpkin & Ricotta Tortelli', Buns & Buns' limited-edition pumpkin soup served in mini pumpkins and Balthazar's creepy cocktail menu.
