About the event
Two different shows for your horror needs. Spooky Magic and Horror Comedy in one event inside Scotland's Most Haunted Pub! Both shows are Edinburgh Horror Festival Sell Out Acts every year since 2016
PARANORMAL ILLUSIONIST // 8:00pm
In Paranormal Illusionist you'll experience unsettling psychic illusions, mind reading and bizarre magic inside the Underground Vaults of Edinburgh (Nicely refurbished to be comfortable... yet terrifying!). Step into the psychic's parlour for an experience with the supernatural, the paranormal, and mind-twistingthings that go BUMP in the night as you take part in a series of mind twisting demonstrations drawing on psychic superpowers, spirit communication and the Seance. Combining psychic phenomena, ESP and spirit communication with stage mentalism, and theatre, the show will skirt the edges of what is real and what is on the other side of the veil. This is a theatrical magic show - if we do summon demons during the course of the show, we cannot be held responsible for possessions. Please clean up any ectoplasm brought up in fright... "...unique and original ...a clever and well-crafted show" - World Magic Review “★★★★★ If you want to see something truly amazing... this is the man to show you.“ – Bunbury magazine
STAND UP HORROR // 9:15pm
Stand Up Horror features improvised, macabre tales featuring (voluntary!) members of the audience as Alex leads you in a tale across the city facing ghosts... or zombies.... or witches... or all...!? You get to make suggestions and help guide the adventure and determine if you live... or DIE! Mwuhahaha
Actor, writer and tour guide Alex Staniforth invents a horror story every night. You decide what the characters do, find and sometimes - yes sometimes - even love. Every night is different and every night is horrifically hilarious. A twice monthly event in Scotlands MOST HAUNTED PUB, come along and experience the unique, and hilarious Stand up Horror. "Fielding suggestions from the audience, the actor, story-teller ... will spin a tale of terror and laughter from scratch. Expect “gory-telling” at its finest in the perfect location." - The Wee review
Pay What You Can on the door, or reserve online for a minimum amount to ensure entry. Due to the venue's capacity, in the event of a sell out, spaces will only be held for five minutes after the show start time, at which point any non-reserved audiences will be admitted and you risk losing your place. The venue is open from 5pm.
The show is strictly over 18s only.
Photography is permitted but not flash photography or video recording.
You can obtain a refund up to 24 hours before the show for any reason. After that time, requests for refunds will not be accepted by the Edinburgh Horror Festival.
Whilst in the winter months we'd recommend masking if able to. No one likes even a basic cold, let alone the plague!
