WHAT IS THE EHF?

The Edinburgh Horror Festival, or EHF as all the cool kids call it, is  one of the most popular Hallowe'en events in Edinburgh.  Incorporating theatre, comedy, magic, spoken word, movies, games, improv, workshops, interactive events and more.   So there will be plenty of things to do in Edinburgh during the Haunting season of Hallowe'en and Samhuinn.

WHEN IS IT?

The main EHF 2019 will run Thursday October 24th to Sunday November 3rd 2019.

WHERE IS IT?

We will be inside two venues, and meeting outside for a special event.  These places are:
The Banshee Labyrinth, Niddry Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1LG
Lauriston Castle, 2 Cramond Road S, EH4 6AD
Grassmarket, Space TBC

ARE VENUES ACCESSIBLE TO ALL?

There are some restrictions at our venues, mainly due to either licensing laws or the legal restrictions on altering certain types of building.  With assistance, people on crutches or with walking aids should be able to access all of our venues.  Those in wheelchairs may find there is no access.  It is best to contact us directly if you have any concerns about mobility and access.  Also, some of our venues are over 18s due to being pubs. 

HOW TO BOOK TICKETS/ RESERVE SEATS

The vast majority of our shows are free entry.  We'd advise you to arrive no later than 10 minutes before to ensure you get a good seat.  Shows with tickets, you would need to purchase tickets either before hand or on the door.  Note, the Lauriston Castle events are all pre-sales only due to limited numbers.  We can also only provide audiences with ticket details if acts provide us with them first.  Some shows may allocate a number of reservation seats if they are donation entry on the night.
