"HorrorCon UK is a unique and interactive festival experience that is unlike anything else in the UK, an event that will leave you and your friends smiling long after the show is over," said Gill Bell, commercial director and organiser.

"It brings the horror community together, in a friendly and atmospheric space, to experience all forms of the genre, including art, tattooing, music, literature, film and more.

"We are giving fans the chance to meet with like-minded people in the heart of the most haunted county, of Yorkshire.

"Fans will be able to talk to and rub shoulders with the leading names in the horror industry today. Our ambition is to bring to the UK a festival that is comparable to the biggest horror events on the planet! We are the dark alternative to the Comic-Con scene!"
