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 2021 will run Thursday October 21st to October 31st 2021. 

WHERE IS IT?

Hopefully in-person at the Banshee Labyrinth, Lauriston Castle and Edinburgh Dungeon.  Regardless of Covid restrictions, we will also have a digital line up.
 

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 the 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.
