Haunted Screenings: Cemetery setting for spooky films

713 1570190958

It's October, which means it's time to get well and truly into the Halloween spirit and start looking forward to all the spooky goings-on which accompany this time of the year.

Sheffield General Cemetery is high on the list of atmospheric places to hang out on dark nights, and this year Haunted Screenings have put together a spooktacular film programme featuring a selection of movies that'll please young and old alike.

There'll be late afternoon screenings for families, where fancy dress will be very much encouraged and you'll go on a spooky trail along the winding pathways of the cemetery grounds before heading to the chapel to enjoy 90s classic Addams Family Values and Tim Burton's Corpse Bride.

And for the braver souls among you, you can explore the sprawling cemetery in the dead of night before creeping into the chapel to be scared witless by The Woman in Black and The Awakening. Luckily for you, there'll be a licensed bar available should you need to steady your nerves and a range of tasty snacks will also be on offer.

The Haunted Screenings will take place on 19 and 20 October. Find more info and tickets here.
