It’s BACK! The UK’s biggest festival of live horror performance returns for a 5th terrifying year, to thrill and chill audiences for three jam packed weeks this October. This year the festival is produced in collaboration with The Etcetera Theatre in Camden, the official home of the LHF.
With more than 10 different horror theatre companies and artists bringing their work to the festival, a spectacular launch night cabaret, film screening, Zombie weekends, midnight performances AND a short horror play competition, 2015 is looking set to be the most exciting festival yet!
Following on from the huge success of last year’s launch night extravaganza, the festival is kicking things off with a ‘Celebrate Halloween Early’ Horror Cabaret, featuring the weird and wonderful talents of some of London’s finest burlesque, comedy and vaudeville artists, and hosted by none other than Lucy Muck, of last year’s ‘horror raffle’ fame…!
The festival continues to support new writing and provide a platform for emerging talent in the horror theatre scene, with ‘It’s Not What It Seems…’ – a short horror play writing competition. With over 200 entries received from across the globe, the top 3 shortlisted plays will be performed, with an exclusive prize for the winning entry and free giveaways for audience members!
For something a bit different after dark, get yourself down to Camden for two exclusive midnight performances of ‘Jermay Predicts!’ – critically acclaimed mind reading and psychic predictions from Luke Jermay.
And in tribute to the late great Sir Christopher Lee there will also be a screening of one of his greatest films, the classic horror ‘The Wicker Man’, accompanied by the haunting vocals of all-female choir ‘The Eversley Singers’.
Offering a terrifyingly eclectic mix of horror comedy, devil possession, psychological drama, mind reading and even a Zombie musical, there’s sure to be something for everyone at the London Horror Festival 2015!
