Cool Events Column: A ‘Tales, Tattled and Told’ Halloween

Ex-BBC entertainment writer Sarah Bygrave has picked out the best events for October, with a 90s music festival, a fusion of 20s swing and electro beats and an evening of silly storytelling.

Where is the time going? It’s already the last quarter of the year, but what a year it has been.

There have been so many awesome events, but it’s not over yet! Here are my top picks for October.

If you love all things nineties (let’s be honest, who doesn’t?) then I have the perfect event for you.

The Big Nineties Festival is coming to MK on the 11th at Campbell Park and it looks set to be a fantastic night. You will get to see fantastic acts such as Urban Cookie Collective, plus you can dust off your crop tops and inflatable backpacks and get stuck in!

Head to to book your tickets.

On the 25th MK11 are hosting The Electric Swing Circus – a live 6 piece band performing an exhilarating fusion of 20s swing music and electro beats.

The perfect mash up of genres, the infectious music will have you stomping and swinging about in no time. Tickets can be bought at and I’ll see you down there!

For something a little different, how about an evening of performance storytelling at the Rectory Cottages in Bletchley.

Tales, Tattled and Told is a feast for lovers of storytelling as the group share ‘foolish fables, dark deeds and silly stories’ on the evening of the 19th.

There will also be poetry and comical interludes for your entertainment. For more information, search for the event on Facebook.

The weekend of the 26th and 27th will see many local bars and restaurants celebrating Halloween with lots of spooky treats, themed cocktails and entertainment on offer.

Why not pop in some vampire teeth and head out to your local pub – have a spooktacular weekend everyone!
