About the festival

The UK's original and largest festival of horror in the performing arts returns to the Old Red Lion Theatre in London this October.

Scaring the living daylights out of audiences since its inception in 2011, the London Horror Festival is a celebration of the ghoulish, the thrilling and the downright macabre through the various mediums of live performance.

Over the past six years they have championed horror theatre, proudly presenting programmes featuring new writing, adaptations of literary classics, immersive interactive experiences, LGBTQ cabaret, musicals, burlesque, live podcast recordings, comedy, clowning, puppetry, storytelling, magic, midnight mind-reading and Séance shows, film screenings with live choirs, radio and short play competitions, lectures ... and much more!


Starts:Sunday 15 October 2017

Ends:Saturday 4 November 2017
