Last Thursday marked the return of London’s HLWeen party, where 200 of our industry colleagues and friends donned their spookiest attire for a frightfully fun evening.

Inspired by the unique venue, Kachette – a historic railway warehouse – this year’s theme was ‘Vintage Ghost Train’. The team wore a range of grisly get-ups from creepy conductors to eerie passengers. Our guests showed their supernatural creativity with a wide range of spine-chilling costumes. Themes ranged from murderous clowns, gruesome construction workers, macabre cheerleaders, vampires, witches, as well as several popular characters. In attendance was Freddy Krueger, Cruella de Vil, complete with a crew of dalmatians, the Scooby-Doo gang, Jigsaw, and even some representatives from Squid Game.


There were many excellent contenders for the Best Dressed competition. Ultimately, we awarded 1st place to Rhonda Curliss and Victoria Firth from Grey Lemon, who came as the Grady Twins from the Shining.

2nd place went to the crew from Showcase for their Cruella de Vil and dalmatians costumes.

3rd place went to Dominic Slevin from Alar Consulting, who came as Dracula.

Our HLWeen party is our way of saying a huge thank you to our clients and colleagues for their dedication, hard work, and support over the past year, whilst bringing the industry together in an informal and unusual way. We really appreciate the effort that our guests go to and the energy that they bring to the occasion. Sorry to everyone that missed it and a very big thank you to everyone who came. We hope you had a spectacular time and can’t wait to see you all again next year!
