THE 13TH SÉANCE- 28th – 31st October
Live Horror Attraction, Theatre From 5pm – 11pm – £8 available on the door
Tom Spindler the creator behind ‘Asylum Hill’ and ‘ Masks’ is back with a terrifying horror experience set in the dark arches of Counter Culture as part of The London Ghost Festival. For four nights the dead will be able to cross over and walk amongst us – this attraction will test your limits of fear and push you right into the action.Tom Spindler says, ‘This is a subject that is very rarely touched on but it is the one thing that frightens everybody and something that plays on our mind when the lights go out. How do you escape from something that isn’t alive?’ This is an extreme experience, Its not recommend for under 14’s and special effects include smoke, strobe lighting loud noises and scenes of a mature nature. The event will last 20 minutes and guests are encouraged to come in groups, wrap up warm and stick together!
