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.


Now a monthly event in Scotlands MOST HAUNTED PUB, come along and experience the unique, and hilarious Stand up Horror.


"Alex Staniforth has sold out his shows at Edinburgh Horror Festival in both 2016 and 2017. 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


NOTE: If you order tickets online you will not be sent physical tickets.  Instead, please bring your purchase confirmation or ID with the name of the purchaser.


Accessibility: The space is accessible to those with mobility issues if they are able to use walking aids.  For your consideration: there is one flight of stone steps leading upwards from the venue entrance, comprising 5 steps.  Once in the cinema space, there are several long carpeted steps leading down to the front row.  The accessible toilet is situated on the landing between the stone steps and the cinema. Open only to those aged 18 and above.  ID may be required.
