Where to find gigs in Peterborough this Halloween weekend
Peterborough’s pubs and clubs are getting into the Halloween spirit this weekend - and here’s all you need to know.
Nightmare on Bridge Street
Met Lounge, October 30
It’s the one night of the year when the ordinary mortals of this planet avoid the area outside 59 Bridge Street. The night when the living dead emerge for their annual pilgrimage and Bridge Street resembles the zombie apocalypse between the hours of 9pm to 3am!
The Met Lounge Halloween Party is the longest running ‘Alternative’ event in the area – starting in 1999. Advance tickets are £5 and if you’re in fancy dress and arrive before 10pm you get the ticket money back in bar vouchers.
