Doing Dead Good this Halloween

Posted by Kirsty Telford on 19th October 2023

Join us at Hoxton Street Monster Supplies this Halloween and support our young writers. 

Are you throwing a monstrous party? Decorating the entrance to your lair? Heading out to trick-or treat?

Head over to our shop, Hoxton Street Monster Supplies to find fun and unique halloween treats and goodies for all your spooking needs. Every purchase makes a difference, with all the profits raised from our fantastical shop coming straight back into work at our writing centre.

In addition to running our very-own shop for monsters, we are bringing a whole heap of Monster Mayhem and family-friendly events to our pop-up City Store at Leadenhall Market this October half term; in collaboration with artist and author, Aaron Blecha and generously supported by our friends at the City of London Corporation.
