Halloween Weekend


The Halloween Weekend is creeping closer. At The Earl of Doncaster Hotel, between Friday 28th and Saturday 30th October 2016, we invite those that dare to attend one of our not so scary, fun filled events.

Haunted Halloween Afternoon Tea.

Our popular Afternoon Tea range will see an edgy addition in the ghostly form of our Haunted Halloween Afternoon Tea. Served from Friday 28th to Sunday 30th October, between 12 midday and 5pm, this is an excellent way to mark the occasion in a family friendly manner.

Each brave guest can enjoy ‘finger’ shaped sandwiches, sweet and friendly ghost shaped cakes, graveyard gravel made from indulgent chocolate Brownie, as well as vividly coloured fruit and plane scones. Adults can take advantage of a cup of Illy Coffee or Taylors Tea to warm up during this chilling autumn weekend, and children can choose from a soft drink of their choice.

To help develop the atmosphere we will be decorating the restaurant with a few themed ornaments, as well as adding some special cob web splendour to the tables.

Rocky Horror Cabaret with Talegate Theatre.

Then on the Saturday evening our Ballroom will be transformed into the eerie setting of the Rocky Horror Picture Show castle, as TaleGate Theatre present their cabaret take on this classic horror-comedy movie.

Dr Frank N. Furter, Janet Weiss and Barry Bostwick will all be portrayed in this strange journey telling the deep and dark story of the sweet aliens from transsexual Transylvania. Expect costumes, drama, and just a tad of audience interaction. Infact, why not come dressed as your favourite character to help set the scene?

As well as the live show, presented in two parts, guests can tuck into a delicious 3 course meal cooked by our Head Chef Derek Hudson. Closer to the time we will be announcing the dishes on our social media channels, including Facebook and Twitter, so make sure you keep connected with us.
