Autumn Delights…

Here at ABC Selfstore, we love this time of year, the leaves are turning, we can spend our days drinking warming hot chocolate, and we have Halloween and Bonfire Night to look forward to! The whole of London gears themselves up for these two events, and the night sky is filled with flashing lights for days on end and ghostly ghouls are seen walking the streets. There is so much going on that we thought we’d take a look at some of the best events for you and your friends and family to visit…

For Halloween, Camden is the place to be for those ages 18 and over, with the bars providing a variety of spooktacular events, including bands, games and of course fancy dress competitions! For a younger audience, Peckham Library in Southwark is holding a free crafts session for kids aged 5 and over to go and make fantastic creepy masks and props to scare Mum and Dad…

There are a large number of Bonfire Night events across London, but we are proud to say that the displays in Camden, Southwark and Wandsworth are amongst the best.

With free entry and a family friendly atmosphere, the fireworks display at Southwark Park is always one of the most popular London displays. This event is always held on the 5th of November and hosts a large number of food and drink stalls to keep you warm and toasty as you wave those sparklers!

For those of you who’d rather keep your festivities to the weekend, Wandsworth Council is holding a big display at Battersea Park on Saturday 3rd November, fired by the award-winning pyrotechnicians Pains Fireworks. Be warned though, you need to buy a pre ticket to get into this event!

In Camden, although the council don’t put on a bonfire show, Primrose Hill it’s a great venue for checking out displays all over London with its’ high vantage point you can take in the displays from across the city. This is the perfect romantic spot, or great for a gathering of friends with a few hot thermos of mulled wine!

Whatever you decide to do over the next couple of weeks, make sure you wrap up warm and stay safe. Here at ABC Self store we have kept our hats and gloves in storage over the summer, and now is a perfect time to get them out and grab a sparkler or two…
