Festival of The Dead returns to Cardiff and it’s like nothing you’ve seen before

Festival of the Dead returns to Cardiff at The Great Hall, Cardiff SU on 9th November as part of a 2018 UK tour, with a spectacular show unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

Mixing a carnival atmosphere with circus, theatre, clubbing and mind-blowing production, Festival of the Dead follows a hugely successful debut tour in 2017 with a brand new immersive and unmissable experience.

Not to be mistaken with the Dia de los Muertos public holiday, which has significant religious meaning and many traditions that will not be happening at these shows.

New for 2018, follow one man’s journey into the underworld; a story featuring giant creatures and creations, including The Vulture and ‘El Diablo’ – a huge, mechanical skull backdrop full of hidden surprises, a whole new cast of characters and otherworldly acrobats, circus performers, spectacular processions through the crowd, and live DJs spinning a killer club soundtrack.

The crowds have become part of the show, dressed to eerily impress, with professional face painters on hand and beautifully macabre decor to enhance the atmosphere wherever you turn; there is no experience out there like Festival of the Dead.

[accordion title=”What is Festival of the Dead?” load=”hide”]Festival of the Dead grew from a single Halloween party at The Troxy in London to an experiential clubbing phenomenon, selling over 60,000 tickets in sold out shows across the UK and in Europe last year. It’s not hard to see why; this is entertainment on a different scale. The props are awe-inspiring, the live performers dazzling and dramatic. Festival of the Dead pulls each guest into the show and takes them on a unique journey into the unknown.[/accordion]

Festival Of The Dead organiser, Nathan Reed said:
“Festival Of The Dead just keeps getting bigger and better. We’ve really pushed the boundaries once again on the level and quality of our production, with the new giant creatures, characters and live performers – you won’t believe your eyes! We’re very excited to tour the new show across the UK and take all our guests on a journey to the underworld they’re never going to forget. When we say there is no other party out there like Festival Of The Dead, we mean it.” 

Step into the carnival of the underworld on 9th November in Cardiff.

Festival of the Dead also visits Bristol, Edinburgh, Bournemouth, Glasgow, London, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Brighton.
