Hire a crowd of Halloween characters

Ghosts, ghoulies, vampires, witches – the list of Halloween themed characters on our books is terrifying. Meeting them when in character is even more horrific and frightening!

These are not characters you want to meet on a dark night but if you want someone to liven up your Halloween event, look no further!

Our Halloween specialists include actors, performers and stilt walkers who really know how to bring their characters to life. It is also why they are much in demand.

Every year, we work with countless steam railways creating terror filled railway journeys, with Halloween themed attractions as well as with brand managers and PR companies seeking an attention grabbing stunt.

Anything can happen. One of our most unusual Halloween requests was a demand for sampling staff and product demonstrators to promote Halloween themed sweets to families in ASDA stores nationwide. All the staff had to dress up as ghostly characters when roaming the stores, promoting the sweets. It was eye-catching and extremely successful. Families loved the idea!

Halloween offers immense potential for promotional activities of all kinds. For centuries, it is a period always regarded as a time of mystery, where the boundaries between worlds are thin.
