Ryedale Spookfest

  • Yo Bakehouse United Kingdom (map)

Just in time for Halloween, the inaugural Ryedale Spookfest takes place on Saturday 27th October 2018 in Malton, North Yorkshire.

This brand-new festival for adult readers and writers of horror celebrates the eerie, the macabre and the bloodthirsty, featuring the region’s best writers and publishers of this popular genre.

Organised by published horror writer Lee Franklin, the events start at 10am and continue into the evening using two fantastic venues in the centre of this foodie capital of Yorkshire; the Talbot Hotel and Yo Bakehouse.

Lee said: “There is something very instinctive about fear. When we read a ghost story or a ghoulish tale, many of us appreciate the fight or flight instinct while reading this heart-thumping genre in the safety of our own home. Our Spookfest explores this fascinating genre on a number of levels.”

Ticket prices apply to all events and the festival organisers request you to note that these events are unsuitable for children under 14 years old.
