The Halloween Masked Ball returns to its nefarious nocturnal haunt at Los Flambardos, Helston, Cornwall every Halloween for another chapter of devilish hedonism. Based at ‘Los Flambardos’ – a sprawling theme park just outside of Helston, the Halloween Masked Ball has grown to become one of the largest Halloween parties in Europe, its dedication to costume and outlandish dress equalled only by the crowd’s thirst to party.
The Masked Ball is a walk on the wild side boasting a strong and varied musical line-up. Set among a myriad of stunning venues, a strange and surreal sideshow of fairground follies, rock ‘n’ roll posturing and freak show craziness wait to be discovered.
