We’ve also been chatting to the party indies to find out how Halloween is going down on the high street and their hopes and plans to make this Halloween the party of all parties.


Multi-channel retailer, The Range is so positive about Halloween this year, that it launched its collection back in August. Find out what the retailer has on offer and how sales have been going so far here.


Over in the US, there are mixed expectations for the Halloween come-back, says our columnist and executive director of the National Costumers Association, Ed Avis.

But travel a bit further from the UK, and there are high hopes for a huge party, according to chief party dude at The Party People, Dean Salakas.


The suppliers are ready with some truly terrifying ranges and the prognosis from them is overwhelmingly positive, as they gear up for the all-important month of October.
