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 EHF 2020 will run Thursday October 22nd to Sunday November 1st 2020.
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
The Statue of David Hume, Royal Mile (Departure for tours)
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. Unless specifically stated, all shows are over 18. This applies to all shows we host, produce and stage and not exclusively those during the main EHF runs in the Autumn.
HOW TO BOOK TICKETS/ RESERVE SEATS
All shows can be booked via our website. Head over to the "What's On" or "Programme" pages and click on the show you want. You will be taken to a page where ticket sales can be made. We'd advise you to arrive no later than 10 minutes before to ensure you get a good seat for shows as seating position is not allocated- the earlier arrival, the more choice in exact seat you'll get. Note, the Lauriston Castle events are all pre-sales only due to limited numbers. Donation/ Pay What you can shows all have the option to reserve seating ahead of time, though a donation speech may still be made by the act at the conclusion of their show.
