Venue: The Floating Cinema, Canalside Steps
While the summer evenings are long and it’s less scary in the dark, join us for The Floating Cinema ‘Horror Weekender’.
This incredible structure will journey to King’s Cross along London’s waterways and find its home for the weekend at the Canal Side Steps in Granary Square, where it will show a spine-tingling programme of horror films curated by British director Steven Sheil. Activities such as a scream-a-thon, zombie FX make-up sessions and a séance led by the renowned writer Stephen Volk complete the line-up.
