Gill Bell, Managing Director of HorrorCon UK says “When we first launched HorrorConUK in 2015 we totally believed that UK horror lovers needed an event that brought new and exciting horror guests together in this country, within an immersive horror setting - everything at HorrorConUK is horror! Our attendees are completely horror crazy but seriously you couldn't find a friendlier crowd at a convention! Judging by ticket sales so far we have definitely hit the nail on the head this year!”
