There’s a Squid Game-themed rave happening in Leeds this Halloween

Squid Game has come to Leeds: just without the dire consequences of the game. Join the Squid Rave for one-night-only this Halloween weekend.

What would happen if you combined Netflix-hit Squid Game with live music and fairground rides? For one night only, you can find out without any of the deadly consequences from the show.

If you’ve watched even the trailer for smash hit Netflix show Squid Game, you’ll know that it’s not for the faint hearted.

Halloween weekend is reserved for the spookiest events of the year, so it only makes sense to host the ultimate ‘Squid Rave’ surrounded by walkabout performers and scary costumes.

On Friday 29 October, grab your white trainers and join the Squid Rave at the Beaverworks from 10pm.

For those who aren’t familiar with the Korean TV series, contestants compete in a set of children’s games with deadly penalties for the chance to win a cash prize of 45.6 billion.

The characters are deeply in debt one way or another, leaving 456 players with no option but to face the games and their consequences.

Luckily, the Squid Rave is all about embracing the TV show rather than actually playing the games, so there will be no outrageous challenges or deaths, but rather an night of celebrating Halloween with like-minded company.

The massive venue will host nine Halloween party rooms, complete with live music and DJs, ranging from drum and bass to reggae, acid house and garage genres.

A Squid Rave wouldn’t be complete without fancy dress, so make sure to get your white trainers and neon tracksuit out for the special occasion.

Since the launch of Squid Game, white slip-on Vans sales have soared by 7800% and many Squid Game Halloween costumes have sold out online, so make sure to get your outfit sorted with plenty of time to spare.

The only challenges are going to be seeing how many fairground rides you can fit into your evening. Oh, and don’t be convinced by the Squid-Game-style signs around Leeds city centre, they’re bus diversions and have no relevance to the TV show.

Tickets are available from Beaverworks for the one-night event. For more information, check their website.
