The Edinburgh Horror Festival returns in 2017 with over 200 performances of 60 different shows this Hallowe’en weekend.

Taking over the seven venues across the city; Banshee Labyrinth and The Tron return as well as new venues CC Blooms, Lauriston Castle, the Waverley, E-VR and Monkey Barrel.

Expect more theatre, laughter, music, magic, feats and treats, all full of horror and fear. Including family friendly events!

Founded in 2016, the Edinburgh Horror Festival is a not-for-profit unincorporated association.

The Edinburgh Horror Festival is one of the first of its kind in the UK- most horror festivals focus on one style of performance be it film or theatre, or possible one area of horror such as ghosts.

Our goal is to present a varied programme of performances in multiple disciplines and genres- from theatre to comedy, from magic to walking tours, from presenting authors to mediums to ghost hunters to scientists.
