Leicester Horror Con 2020


Leicester Horror Con 2020

After a successful sold out debut in 2019, Leicester Horror Con is set to return for it's sequel on Saturday 28th March 2020. And as you'd expect from a horror sequel it will be bigger, bloodier and with a few twists in store!

The main venue is Holiday Inn Leicester on St Nicholas Circle. This move from The Guildhall to a bigger space will allow for more traders, higher capacity for attendees and better accessibility.

Holiday Inn Leicester will host the highlight of our convention, the "Dark Market". The UKs best horror traders will be in attendance selling artwork, posters, toys, comics, books, DVDs/Blu-Rays and more. Traders include returning favourites Alleycat Graphics, 88 Films and Last Shirt on the Left as well as many new and local creators.

Panels and talks will also be located at The Holiday Inn with film screenings held close by.

Guests from film and TV will once again be appearing, along with the inclusion this year of figures from literary horror, the first to be announced being prolific author Mike (M. R.) Carey, known for the Felix Castor series and comic book Lucifer as well as both the novel/film the Girl With all the Gifts.

Other early guest announcements include icon of the UK horror scene Emily Booth (Horror Channel, Evil Aliens, Doghouse), creature actor Ross Mullan (Game of Thrones, Howl) and legendary poster artist Graham Humphreys (Evil Dead, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Monster Club).

Leicester Horror Con's first international guest will be Italian film actor Giovanni Lombardo Radice (aka John Morghen) who came to a gruesome end in many 80s splatter films.
