About the festival

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.

Over the past eight years the festival has championed horror theatre, proudly presenting programmes featuring new writing, adaptations of literary classics, immersive interactive experiences, LGBTQ cabaret, musicals, opera, 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!

Applications to submit a show for the London Horror Festival 2018 are now closed.

The official LHF 2018 programme will be released in September.


Starts:Sunday 7 October 2018

Ends:Saturday 3 November 2018
