Stoke Place, Black Widow's Ball
Taking place on 28 October, the Black Widow's Ball at luxury hotel Stoke Place is lavishly reinventing the country house party, according to Sophie. 'The Hammer horror-themed event promises theatrical ghoulishness by way of fancy dress, a midnight feast, mummification room and transvestite tarot.'
