Welcome to a week of Cheap & beautiful Freeness. Enjoy.
- London Horror Festival – The Etcetera Theatre, Camden
Get in the Halloween mood early with the London Horror Festival. From the 13th-31st The Etcetera Theatre in Camden will be staging a number of performance art pieces that’ll make a chill run down your spine, but hopefully not down your leg, if you have a small bladder I would recommend go to the toilet before the show begins.
There will be at least 1 performance a night, though many of the shows will run for a number of evenings. If you’ve ever wondered what a charming Frankenstein would be like, or where in Dante’s nine circles of hell you’d find Shakespeare’s Richard II then this event is perfect for you.

Cost: From £8 – £11.50, tickets are a little cheaper on concession
Date: 13th – 31st October 2014
