With Hallowe’en on Wednesday and Bonfire Night celebrations this weekend, the festive season is kicking off with a bang!

Oktoberfest, Edinburgh
If you’re more excited by beer pumps than pumpkins, you’ll be hopping with joy to hear that it’s not too late for Oktoberfest! Edinburgh celebrates this harvest-time beer festival from Wednesday until Sunday.
 
Launched in 2013, Edinburgh Oktoberfest has live music, great atmosphere, food, and of course lots of beer in a giant tent that fits 1,800 revellers in the vibrant centre of town. Tickets start at £5, with some including a mass (1.5 pint) of Bavarian Festbeer.

Spooky Ship, Bristol
Follow your ghoulish guide and navigate the darkest nooks and crannies of Brunel's 175-year-old ship, the SS Great Britain. Explore its eerie sights, sounds and smells and watch out for characters lurking in the shadows, hoping to share their terrible tales with you.
 
The performance will centre on the true story of long-serving and well-loved Captain Gray, who disappeared from his ship in the dead of night leaving a bereft crew and an abandoned family waiting in vain for his return…
 
The show runs from Wed 31 Oct to Sat 3 Nov, with tours setting off every 10 minutes, from 8:00pm onwards.

NAE PASARAN!, in cinemas nationwide
Released in UK cinemas from Friday, NAE PASARAN! is a painstakingly-documented, emotional account of the factory workers at Rolls Royce East Kilbride in Scotland who refused to repair and return the military jet engines of Pinochet’s Air Force, in protest against their use during the 11th September 1973 air raid on Santiago. For the first time, this feature film brings in the story of Chileans who crossed paths with the engines.

Directed and produced by Felipe Bustos Sierra, nearly 45 years after their defiant stand in protest against General Pinochet’s Air Force in Chile, Scottish pensioners discover the incredible outcome of their solidarity.
 
The film celebrated its World Premiere at the Closing Gala of Glasgow Film Festival 2018.
