Take part in a spooky action at the arms dealers’ ghoulish dinner. High-level arms dealers and arms dealing civil servants are meeting at the Tower of London for a £200-a-head dinner to “Raise [their] profile” and “forge and strengthen strategic alliances”.
They’ve chosen a ghoulish location for their dinner, so let’s haunt them as they arrive! Feel free to come in the most ghoulish costume you can find and help spread the word.
