In our country we have adopted Halloween as part of the celebration of the arrival of the winter solstice. Although in Spain all communities celebrate the date of “All Saints” in some way, the Anglo-Saxon celebration has crept into our culture in a special way.
The word Halloween is a contraction of “All Hallows’ Eve”. Popular culture has given this night a mystical and dark air, so the way to celebrate it is by representing fantastic beings linked to death, black magic or darkness, such as witches, wizards, spirits, etc.
In this context, La Daurada, a 10,000m2 space located in Vilanova i la Geltrú, decided to incorporate this party into its calendar of events three years ago, organizing a costume party in style on Halloween night. The format was so successful that every October 31 has been repeated this theme party that each year revolves around different scenarios, in the first edition (2017) was Zombie Apocalypsis, in the second (2018) “Circo Maldito” in this third edition, given the success of the previous ones, people from all over Catalonia will come to live the terror of the “book of the dead.”
The Necronomicon, the Book of the Dead
The theme of this year’s big party is the famous book of the dead, the Necronomicon, a book riddled with ritual magic whose reading provokes madness and death. In it, powerful formulas can be found to contact dark and supernatural entities, the Ancient Ones, and awaken them from their lethargy to take over the world, this magical night of October 31.
La Daurada proposes to celebrate “All Saints” with a themed party in an already magical space because of its proximity to the sea. La Daurada will theme and prepare all its space to offer an unforgettable night with a passage of terror, produced by Scaparium Vilanova Room Scape, and a show in the disco from 23.59 to 06.00. The “terrifying” party will welcome all horror lovers who want to live the La Daurada experience and are ready for it. “If you lived through the Zombie Apocalypse or felt the terror in the Circus of the Damned, as a horror lover, “you can’t miss El Necronomicon!” declares Orlando Palacios, Director of Communications and Events at La Daurada.
