As the season of holidays kicks off with Halloween, Girl Gang (or Ghoul Gang) are entering the celebrations with a night of spooky socialising, performances, dancing and DJ’s spinning non-stop babe fronted bangers. Join the feminist party starters for a night of hauntingly good festivities this Gal-oween.

every party they host is a safe space where people of all genders can let loose and let go

Held in the basement of Wilson’s Social “Wilson’s Den”, part of Selina NQ1 in the heart of the Northern Quarter. You will be enchanted by supernatural performances from some of girl gang’s regulars as well as voting for your favourite spooky dancefloor fillers. All genders are welcome to this ghoulish spectacle, with Girl Gang describing the evening as “creepy without creeps”. They do a brilliant job of making every party they host a safe space where people of all genders can let loose and let go.

Girl Gang aims to connect us all and spread those positive community vibes

Whether you’re attending with your pals or heading out for a solo dance you’ll be sure to find a warm welcome from the Girl Gang team and other party goers alike. City life can often leave people feeling isolated and Girl Gang aims to connect us all and spread those positive community vibes. Let the dark nights mark the start of the party season and what better way to enter into the mood than with a frightfully good dance at Gal-oween.

Check out the Girl Gang website for more information about their other upcoming events including theatre, meet-ups, discussion and more. We thoroughly recommend their SAD bootcamp, the perfect energised antidote to the change in seasons.
