Halloween 2020 will be like no other. With the Coronavirus pandemic still restricting our day to day lives, how much will it be impacting the spooky season for students?

House parties or hitting the club for Halloween won’t be taking place, with clubs still being closed and the group of six rule still being in place.

With Halloween being a particularly sociable holiday, it is tough to celebrate with friends the way we’re used to.

Creative costumes and elaborate parties will have to wait for a least another year while the world deals with real life horror.

TUXtra reporter, Tori Mccullagh, hit campus to find out how students are celebrating Halloween under the Covid-19 rules.


Stuck for what to do for Halloween, here are just a few ideas of Halloween events happening around Middlesbrough:

The Auxiliary are screening The Cabinet of Dr Caligari. Proclaimed as the worlds first psychological horror film. For more information about the event and tickets, visit

Base Camp, live music venue, will be celebrating Halloween with plenty to go on. It’s free entry. There will be live music, UV Ping Pong, Quick Fire bingo all day and also The Pie Jackers who will be serving pies until 7pm. For more information, visit Base Camps Facebook page.

The Students Union are holding a socially distanced Halloween event. “A NIGHTMARE ON SOUTHFIELD ROAD”. This will be a sit down social and it is not a night to miss. For more information, visit
