Come October 29, Sandalwood Estate will be transformed into a scene from a horror movie, compliments of Escape: Halloween ’16.
Speaking at the press launch last Thursday, promoters Jordan Eversley and Sachin Clarke promised to elevate the Halloween experience for party-goers this year.
“Escape Halloween promises to take Halloween to a whole new level,” said Eversley of the College Rave Entertainment franchise.
Attendees at the launch got a glimpse of what they can expect on October 29, as the event commenced with a hauntingly electrifying entrance, as a werewolf and bloodied little girl suddenly appeared in the fog-filled lounge area.
Eversley and Clarke, two 19 year old entrepreneurs with successful brands, saw the need for an exciting new product to cater to the demographic which patronized Liquid Halloween after this annual event was discontinued.
Partnering with Stuart Mayers of MIA Entertainment, Escape Halloween was created.
“We’ve realized that we have all equally dominated specific demographics, and . . . together we have fused to develop a new vibrant, premium drinks inclusive Halloween event for the island of Barbados . . . with the fusion of energy and the fusion of talent within our segregated events. Together we are definitely going to take over the Halloween events in Barbados,” said Eversley.
Determined to provide partygoers with a “new vibrant partying experience”, the trio has also taken to being socially responsible for the Halloween festivities by donating blood to the Barbados Blood Collection.
“I get a phone call every month asking to donate blood and you always find an excuse not to go until it actually is personal, it hits home,” said Mayers.
“So we’re just trying to build that social responsibility among that age group as well where, instead of waiting until something goes wrong, hey go out there and give some blood.”
As part of the promotion of responsible partying among young people, the first five persons to donate blood will be winners of a free ticket to the premium Halloween event.
