Celebrated every 31st October with great zest in the West, especially in America where it’s something of a phenomenon, Halloween is yet to really take off in BW.
Keen to rock this particular boat, rockers Raven In Flesh have put together a first-of-its-kind Halloween-inspired show: the ‘Spooktacular Halloween Carnival’.
Set for Saturday night at #Social at Masa Centre in CBD, patrons are encouraged to dress for the occasion, with the spookiest costumes earning free cocktails.
Known for ballads such as ‘If Only Dreams Were True’, ‘Time’, ‘Sweetest Day’, ‘Black Eyes’ and ‘Velvet House’, Raven In Flesh are sure to put on a performance that will light up the night. Best of all, entrance is free!
