Scottish novelist Christopher Brookmyre will headline the countdown to Halloween by hosting a discussion on his new novel The Way of All Flesh. Brookmyre returns to his Barrhead roots with the event at The Foundry, with medical historian and consultant anaesthetist, Dr Marisa Haetzman, who collaborated with him on the historical crime book, written under the pseudonym of Ambrose Parry.  

Ghost hunters can join a team of detectives for a Scottish themed murder mystery evening The Lost Soul of the Lingering Laird on Saturday 27 October at Eastwood House. The show features a kilted ghost, phantom bagpiper and murderer on the loose and the ghoulishly good event will include a buffet and bar drink so you can feel refreshed as you plot to solve the crime.

Our Carry On Sleuthing comedy murder mystery night comes to Giffnock Library on Friday 12 October. You can join amateur sleuth Letita Luvibod to solve the murder of underwear businessman Silas Bounce. Listen to the evidence, laugh at the jokes and find the clues to track down the killer at this BYOB event.

Eastwood Park is also hosting a trio of spook-tacular baby discos on the Halloween weekend so you can bring your little pumpkins, fairies and ghouls along to play party games, boogie to the beats and do the monster mash.

Plus, on 31 October itself Eastwood Park Theatre is bringing a real treat with Halloween favourite film Hocus Pocus back to the big screen for one night only!

Visit Eastwood Park Theatre to book your killer night out!
