The chilling chapel

What could be creepier than a gothic revival chapel on Halloween? A two-night scary movie showing in a gothic revival chapel, that’s what. The Union Chapel in Canonbury is showing Escape from New York followed by a medley of the Halloween series. An added bonus includes Alan Haworth, the composer who scored many of the iconic films, providing live accompaniment and excerpts from other famous movies before and after the screenings. Fancy dress is encouraged and all the proceeds go towards restoration and development of the chapel.

Highbury is located a short journey from Canonbury and is the home to popular residential development, Highbury Stadium Square. Here you’ll find a selection of one and two-bedroom apartments situated around a scenic two-acre communal garden. Rentals start from £350 per week
