Norwich Spooky City
Norwich City Centre, October 31st
If you fancy a bit of trick or treating, then Norwich’s family event might be the perfect thing for you.

The night’s events conclude with a range of entertainments on Millennium Plain.
Dinosaur Adventure, until October 31st
Tickets: £15.95 – £21.95 (dependant on date)
If you’re feeling brave, then gather some friends and take yourselves to one of the UK’s scariest Halloween experiences. PrimEVIL, at Dinosaur Adventure.
With five separate scare experiences: the CarnEvil of Terrors, the Forest of Fear, the Dark, the Zone 64 East and Mayhem Manor Hotel, there is surely something to terrify everyone.
The park is approximately 11 miles from the university, but with the taxi fare at around £18, it would be reasonable to divide between 4 friends.
