The London Horror Festival is back for a 7th terrifying year to thrill and chill audiences for 3 jam-packed weeks this Halloween season.
London Horror Festival

The UK’s original and largest festival of live horror performance returns to the Old Red Lion Theatre following the great success of 2016.

With official sponsorship from Hobgoblin, ‘the unofficial beer of Halloween’, and horror artist Jessica F. Holt, this annual celebration of the horror genre is going strong and 2017 is their biggest line-up yet with an eclectic programme of 23 different shows on offer.

The London Horror Festival works to promote new and innovative work in the arts, support London fringe theatre and is dedicated to providing a platform for artists and companies working in the horror genre.

This year promises a mix of theatre, puppetry, cabaret, spoken word, body horror, clowning and comedy, featuring satanic cults, mummies, zombies, ghosts, vampires and the bodies of Frankenstein!

The festival kicks off with this year’s playwriting competition winner staged by the Old Red Lion Theatre’s very own Artistic Director Clive Judd, including special prizes from sponsor Hobgoblin, followed by horror panel quiz show ‘What’s the Bloody Question?’ presented by UK Horror Scene’s Tony Sands and the London Horror Society.

Shows to look forward to include 5 star horror comedy Curse of the Mummy from Last
Chance Saloon, fresh from their Edinburgh triumph, fellow 5 star fringe successes The Twins Macabre, The Underground Clown Club returning with the 5 star Knock Knock followed by their new show Who’s There?, and reworkings of classic tales including a comic adaptation H.P. Lovecraft’s The Shadow Over Innsmouth by Hidden Basement Productions and a gender-switched version of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven by critically-acclaimed Evcol Entertainment.

For something different after dark, stay up late for an exclusive midnight performance of Felix Le Freak’s Shockbuster Video presented by the folks behind the wildly popular PopHorror cabaret club nights, then party the night away with their very own DJ until 3am.
