Want to get into the Halloween spirit and avoid having to open your door to pesky kids? Head to Broadway Cinema for a screening of this horror classic, a whole four decades after it first came to the big screen. Remastered in 4K, it’ll be scarier than ever… 


Writing Ghost Stories with Alex Davis

Sure, Halloween will be over by Wednesday, but spooky season will live forever in our hearts. With that in mind, why not learn how to pen your own spooky stories with esteemed writer and lecturer Alex Davis?


The Hound of the Baskervilles
When: Friday 4 November
Where: Mansfield Palace Theatre
How much: £21

A classic tale told in an exciting new way. The Hound of the Baskervilles, the much-loved Sherlock Holmes story, will take to the stage in Mansfield in the form of a radio play - with former Doctor Who star Colin Baker in the titular role. For a fantastic story executed by fantastic talents, grab yourself a ticket.

Sancho Panza
When: Friday 4 November, 6.30pm
Where: Rescue Rooms
How much: £8

Show your support for one of Nottingham’s most exciting up-and-coming acts as Sancho Panza take over the Rescue Rooms this Friday. They’ve already received high praise from Jake Bugg and featured on Radio 1’s Future Sounds show, but we reckon that’s just the beginning. Supported by Fat Bamboo and GOODGOODBYE, this is a perfect night for checking out the city’s next generation of icons. 


When: Sunday 6 November, 6.30pm
Where: Rock City
How much: £22.50

Ayyyyy! Wait, sorry, we read that wrong. Fozzy are the legendary metal band fronted by none other than Chris Jericho (yes, that Chris Jericho). A fan of proper rock music? You’re in luck. A fan of WWE? You’re in luck. A fan of both? Well, this might be your dream come true…
