ISES has promised an evening of "glamorous horror" mixed with gothic surprises in the form of scary props, gothic dancers and DJs. There will also be a psychic tarot card reader on-hand to read guests’ fortunes.

Food and drinks, which will be supplied by Exquisite Cocktails and The Recipe, will continue the Halloween theme, with frog-spawn cocktails confirmed as the drink of the night. Guests will be encouraged to appear in fancy dress, and a representative from entertainment company Bolli Darling will award a prize to the best-dressed attendee.

For those lacking in costume, artists from the London School of Make Up and Glitterbox will create scary Halloween facepaint designs, as well as explaining how to add make-up to any look.

Partridge Events has worked with ISES to produce the event. Jacqui Partridge, managing director at the company, said: "The event is designed to get people talking. There’ll be plenty of conversation-starters with the Halloween activity taking place; if you’re looking for a networking opportunity in an entertaining, sociable setting, this is the perfect way to celebrate Halloween.

"Without giving too much away, we’ve pulled out all the stops to ensure a fantastic evening of spooky surprises and glamorous entertainment."

Other suppliers for the event include City Academy, One Fine Film, RefTech, Spaceworks, Mystial Parties, Icebox, Off to Work, Designer Flowers, Kru Talent International, Indigo Plum and Gillian Morris.

The Halloween party will take place a week after ISES exhibits at this year’s Showman’s Show for the first time. Taking place from 22-23 October, ISES said the decision to appear at the expo was down to its plans to establish itself in the outdoor events sector.
