Halloween party fun at Maida Vale

Hallowe'en at Maida Vale Library 2015

During the half-term week, Maida Vale Library had a number of children’s events taking place, including a ‘Scary Scribbles’ competition – encouraging all ages to draw the scariest monster imaginable, and a ‘Horrid Hunt’ word and picture quiz, featuring hidden Halloween images around the library.  The week concluded with the most fun had at a library ever: The Halloween Party!

Over 70 guests were in attendance, most dressed in colourful costume, there to enjoy games such as ‘Vampire Whispers’,  ‘Pass the pumpkin’ and ‘Poison apple’ –  which was certainly a highlight! As were a few of the jokes that the host ‘Count Dracula’ incorporated throughout the evening. These all had a fair bit of audience participation (the host bellowing the question and attendees shouting out in an elated fashion what they thought were the answers!).

‘What is a ghost’s favourite ride at the theme park?
The roller-ghoster’

‘What does a ghost use to wash its hair?

The early evening extravaganza also featured the ‘Box of Doom!’ a popular favourite, where children were invited to guess what items were hidden inside the dark, mysterious cavernous container…

In addition, the party was host to a face-painting and portrait photo session with Image Thirst, who provided additional entertainment.

“…it’s so nice to have a safe place where children can come and have a fun time at Halloween”

It was said that everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves – staff and volunteers overseeing the mayhem, the adults accompanying and of course the children!
