With some revellers possibly still recovering from May’s Masked Ball, the festival’s organisers have released details of its spooky Halloween sibling.

The Halloween Masked Ball will this year be moving to a new, and currently secret, location and will be themed on the Day of the Dead, the famous Mexican festival which remembers the deceased with parties, dancing, and iconic ‘calavera’ skulls.

Masked Ball director Kelvin Batt said: “The Masked Ball faces a different dynamic at Halloween to the summer ball. Audience feedback from previous events have shown that people want a more immersive festival experience to launch themselves into the Halloween atmosphere.

“We have responded by adopting a theatrical-style production, carefully selecting artists and performers to create a cohesive experience based on the Mexican Day of the Dead festival.”

The event, the fifth to be held at Halloween, will take place on November 1, and will feature eight new curated areas, such as the Island of the Dolls, which will host the evening’s headliners including Drums of Death, Optimo, Riton, Panda, Jac The Disco and The Occult Limited early bird tickets for the ball are now on sale from www.maskedball.net for £35.
