    What's it about?

    WE’RE HULL & EAST YORKSHIRE’S FIRST, AND ONLY LIVE ACTION HALLOWEEN EVENT!

    Forget rubbish Dracula costumes and silly cobwebs made of string, get ready to head into the woods and PRAY for forgiveness as the team behind After Dark will be bringing on the fear with three live action scare attractions across two nights of frights. The stories behind the three attractions are all based on real local legends and are set to be brought to life with special effects, spine tingling music and live actors, guaranteeing victims visitors a terrifying encounter that will leave them screaming for more!
    The three attractions lined up to take centre stage in 2019 will be: The Convent, Outpost 42 and Old Stinker.
    Outpost 42 will see thrill seekers take a Journey through a chilling and disturbing Government human test facility where they must be wary of infected test victims as they try and escape this labyrinth of Terror.
    The Convent will take visitors on a trip deep into the woods, back to October 1902 where they will witness the last hours of the Convent of St Mary’s, whose insidious exorcism on a 12-year-old girl has just gone very, very wrong.
    And finally, an old Yorkshire legend will be brought to life. The legend of ‘Old Stinker’. This half-man, half-wolf like creature, famed for its foul breath and devil-like red eyes is said to roam the East Yorkshire Countryside, rumour has it if you hear the chilling howls of the creature during the night, then you won’t live to see the dawn. it has been spotted several times over the years, with the most recent sighting being just two years ago.

    If that wasn’t enough of a treat, After Dark will also feature a funfair, roaming characters, street food, live music and street entertainment from stilt walkers and fire breathers. Thrill seekers looking for something a little more ‘hands on’ will be able to get hands on with all manner of reptiles and creepy crawlies in the interactive “Reptile House”.
    For those still shaking after surviving their terrifying encounters it’s time to pull up a chair and relax in the “Devils Nest” with live entertainment and a strong drink to steady their nerves!
    After Dark Events Manager, Matt Bakes said “We are really proud of all the new additions to the Showground Calendar that have been introduced over the last few years and this is going to be one of those weekends we hope visitors will be talking about for a very long time to come. With After Dark we really wanted to bring something completely new and different to East Yorkshire and the local area, and we cannot wait for visitors to see what we have in store. The frights will literally start from the moment you leave your car, it’s set to be a great weekend with lots planned in, all wrapped up in a friendly festival atmosphere”
    The event is set to go live on Friday 25th October and run for 2 nights. All 3 attractions, street entertainment, live music and the reptile house are all included in the ticket price. Tickets must be purchased in advance and are available to purchase now from afterdark209.eventbrite.co.uk, priced at just £12 per person. Tickets are limited, and organisers are expecting tickets to sell fast. Full terms and conditions along with frequently asked questions can be found on the website.
