Various Locations, Friday 26th October - Monday 29th October 2018

By day, the Bram Stoker Festival programme presents Gothic intrigue at family-friendly events, talks and interactive experiences and at night, the city will embrace the darkness as a host of venues deliver deadly adventures for festival goers in search of macabre thrills and late-night parties.
