Halloween W5 Late

This event is now SOLD OUT!

W5 Late is back this October for a Halloween themed evening of after-hours fun.

At W5, fun has no age limit but for one night this Autumn, there are no kids allowed and grown-ups are given the run of the place.

Don your scariest costume and discover what lurks in the Reimagined W5. With 8 new zones and over 250 exhibits, it really is the perfect playground for a little trick or treating.

Our fully-licensed bar will also be open to help settle the nerves, catch-up with friends and enjoy a spooky Saturday child-free!

Remember... #NoKidsAllowed

Get ready for a night of thrilling tricks, terrific treats and squeamish scares.
