FrightFest 2016, the UK’s biggest and most popular horror film festival, will relocate to the Vue Shepherd’s Bush for its annual 5-day August Bank Holiday event.
After a long residency in London’s Leicester Square, the festival will now take over all twelve screens of the Vue Shepherd’s Bush between 25th–29th August 2016.
In a two-year deal with Vue Entertainment, the festival has the option to return to the Vue Leicester Square in 2017, following maintenance to the venue.
FrightFest co-director Ian Rattray said today:
“After much consideration, and in consultation with the Vue Management, we decided the 12-auditoria establishment in Shepherd’s Bush would not only fit our demanding bill, but give us a whole new raft of exciting opportunities to expand all the core FrightFest entertainment values.
Our continuing, collaborative partnership with Vue means that FrightFest can grow and continue to offer film-goers a unique cinematic experience”.
Daniel Goodwin, Events Manager for Vue Entertainment added:
“We are delighted to see the return of FrightFest and proud to host this sought after and iconic event for another frighteningly brilliant film festival”.
Frightfest has long been the go-to film festival for genre fans across the UK, with countless premieres and star guests having visited the horror-fest over the years.
