On a chilly October night, a week before Halloween, Kinkell Byre was completely transformed into something out of our Halloween dreams and nightmares. After the short bus ride out to Kinkell Byre, guests were taken into another world filled with cobwebs, gore, and general spookiness.

Let’s go with the kiss.”
