Belladonna, Grande Damme of The Underworld

When hosting a Halloween event, every bit of detail counts to ensure the result has real depth and haunted charm to it. What helps to support that character is location choice, and nothing suits better than abandonded, derelict and old buildings. In this case an old Royal Mail sorting office, this was going to be a ripper, and we think you’ll agree.

Belladonna Atropa is the Mistress of Shadows, the Queen of Darkness, the most unholy and respected practitioner of all things despicable and hostess of her first event in a thousand generations. On Saturday 1st November, All Saints Day, The Grande Damme of The Underworld opened the gates of her most infamous and illustrious home, to the children of the night for an immersive evening with Belladonna herself and her band of murderous misfits.

The attention to detail for the decor was second to none, carved pumpkins, spell books, graveyard, coffins and trees along with the presence of Belladonna and her dysfunctional family gave the whole event a superb authenticity.
