Last year saw the start of something very special in South Yorkshire… It was the birth of the powerhouse that is now HorrorCon UK!!
We were there, along with hundreds of other fiendish fans that flocked from all over the country to buy and sell horror memorabilia, dress up as anything and everything weird, bizarre and hellish and meet and greet some of the biggest names in Horror.
This year it returns! We cant wait for the 9th and 10th of July to get straight back into the chainsaw swing of all things horror!
Again being held at ‘Magna science museum’ just on the outskirts of steel city Sheffield, it looks like in 2016 they have cranked the craziness up even more than last time with more stalls, guests and even more scares!
‘HorrorCon UK provides an atmospheric space where like minded fans and fiends can get together to celebrate the weird and wonderful world of horror! A friendly place where you can meet and speak with some of the most iconic names in horror and maybe purchase an autograph or photo.’
Its HorrorCon Uk…. so you can most definately expect to run into people like this….

And if your very lucky… even people like this!!!
Yes thats right, they have some AWESOME guests! Last year brought together horror icons such as Tom Savini, Caroline Munro, Ken Foree, Bill Mosley and the late great Gunner Hansen, and this year is no exception. Just look at some of the guests who have been confirmed so far… And there are still more to come!
Fancy a photo with Jason voorhees?! you can! Fancy asking Pin Head to sign your big box VHS?! then get yourself down to Magna on the 9th and 10th of July for a weekend like no other.
We are the official camera team, so expect to see us running around filming everything we can and grabbing interviews with all the guests and punters for clips that will feature exclusively on the HorrorCon UK Facebook page and Slime House TV season 2.
We’ll be around all weekend, filming and grabbing interviews ect, so don’t be shy, come say hi!
