August 22 - August 26
FrightFest was originally conceived by Paul McEvoy, Ian Rattray and Alan Jones and staged its first event in 2000 at the Prince Charles cinema, off London’s Leicester Square. Its August Bank Holiday weekend date has remained a fixture ever since. Greg Day, their long-serving PR man, joined the company as a co-director in 2006.
The objective of FrightFest was to provide the UK with a horror fantasy festival of similar stature to the market leaders in Europe, Sitges (Spain) and Brussels (Belgium). FrightFest has since evolved into a community where audiences and guests alike travel from all over the world to be part of the event’s unique atmosphere.
The 2019 festival will again be based at the Cineworld and Prince Charles Cinemas on Leicester Square, in London’s West End. The 2019 dates are 22nd to 26th August. Details of the films will be announced on Thursday 4th July with festival and day passes on sale from 6th July. Single tickets will be available from Saturday 20th July.
