From everyone at Icon Events we hope you’re looking forward to Halloween.
Halloween is an ancient festival with Celtic origins, traditionally believed to be the day on which the souls of those who had died that year progressed to the underworld. Following America’s lead, Halloween has gained massive popularity in the United Kingdom (UK) in recent years, turning into one of the country’s biggest cultural and commercial events. From knocking on doors with your little ones all way up to full scale adult parties. Halloween really has become a much celebrated UK occasion, and with bonfire night just around the corner too.
