UK Horror Calendar

With the Birmingham Horror Group planning to host its own convention in May 2017, Birmingham FearFest, we thought it would be a useful tool for UK horror fans to have a central list of forthcoming conventions, festivals, etc.

Further events will be listed as we become aware of them. If you’re involved with one we haven’t included, please drop us a line ( or leave a comment below. There’s no charge, just the hope that everyone has a great time.
