A spooktacular October

Halloween is one of those key dates that is inescapable! Growing in popularity over the years here in the UK, more and more businesses are embracing the Hocus Pocus (what. a. movie.) and using this key date to their benefit. In turn, we’re seeing more engagement and of course, more publications reporting on the ‘holiday’.

From farmers diversifying and offering pumpkin picking, to homeware brands finding every pumpkin shaped decoration known to man – Halloween is big business here in the UK.

As well as Halloween, we continue to look to Christmas and those all important Q4 sales, gift guides are still being put together and now is the time to send out your key trends and products for Christmas this year. Don’t forget to look forward to January 2023 where ‘New Year, New Me’ will be in full force – now is the time to pitch your spring cleaning, healthy eating, mindfulness campaigns.

Key dates for October include:

1st – International Coffee Day

10th – World Mental Health Day

31st – Halloween
