April 18, 2018

Easter Weekend 2018 saw the launch of this terrifying teaser for this Halloween’s FearFest-Evil horror event… The Rising!

A cold, creeping shadow stalks its way across the Chepstow hills, enveloping all that remains of the FearFest-Evil site in its lifeless embrace. Deep within the choking shroud, the dead whisper their secrets of an unfathomable horror, ravenous for flesh and thirsty for the oceans of innocent blood needed to bring about… The Rising.

FearFest-Evil is an immersive Halloween event, taking you on a terrifying journey through anxiety-inducing, adrenaline-filled indoor and outdoor environments.

This horror experience is set at theNational Diving & Activity Centre around an abandoned railway line, disused quarry & forgotten woodland.

FearFest-Evil is the ultimate Halloween Scare Experience for only the bravest of horror fans.

FearFest-Evil runs across selected nights in October 2018, from Friday the 12th and including Halloween, tickets and full details are available from the FearFest-Evil website.
