Held at a secret location in
Hipsterville Dalston, Baron Von Sanderson's Die Freche Muse is a cabaret costume ball with a strict dress code: "Ghoulishly gorgeous, dead aristocrats, starving poets, syphilitic artists... 1920s, 1930s and 1940s only." £10 adv/£12.50 on the door.
Vintage porn purveyors Artwank! goes out of 2011 with a bang as they present The Horny House Of Horror at the Horse Hospital. Clips from Hammer Horror and Japanese gore flicks will be shown alongside live burlesque from Roxy Velvet. £10/£8 concessions.

Markabre Charade looks like he celebrates Halloween every day of the year. He'll be behind the ones and twos at the Bethnal Green Working Men's Club's Palacio De Los Muertos Halloween Spectakular where you can find music, circus, cakes, face-painting and, er, blood baptisms. £6
The following day at the same venue, you can Come Die-ne with Russella, hosted by fab pancake-flipper The Fabulous Russella with music from the Broken Hearts DJs (both of which appear at this weekend's sold out Experimental Food Society banquet).

Another festive eating option is the Halloween Cannibal Holo-Roast at the Old Queens Head. A Sunday roast with a twist, "Corporate Cannibal" Amanda Mae Steel's event returns for a second year with burlesque from Luna Rosa, prizes for best dressed and a Halloween raffle. Free entry.
