Screamfest resurrected for a festival of fright

Post Category : Client News

Blood-thirsty farmers, malevolent spirits, zombies and crazed clowns take over a Staffordshire farm as Screamfest returns bigger and better this Halloween for the most blood curdling festival of fright nights yet.

This October the National Forest Adventure Farm, in Tatenhill, near Burton, will unleash Screamfest Resurrected – a supercharged version of the popular Halloween attraction which attracts 24,000 visitors every year.

Spread out over thirteen terrifying nights in the run up to Halloween, the event includes five immersive scare attractions as well as an extended array of extreme performers taking to the stage for a full night of outdoor entertainment.

With over 100 live actors spread out over five scares and entertainment, it will be one of the most intense scream and laughter inducing events yet.

New scares for 2021 – Meet the gruesome dysfunctional Creed family in the moonlit maize maze, as you struggle to break free from their clutches to become their fresh meat in the terrifying Creed Farm! In Le Theatre Noir’s supernatural spectacle get fully immersed in a Victorian theatrical all-sensory performance – just make sure you don’t lose your soul on the way!

There will also be a new twist on the crazed clown scare attraction, Freakout, as it takes a sinister turn in 2021. The electrifying fright-filled funhouse has risen from the ashes of a destructive fire and awakened the demonic clowns within.

The popular Hillbilly Joe’s Zombee Zoo and Love Hurts will also return to make up the five immersive scare attractions spread out across the farm site.

The event’s live extreme performances have also been extended to provide non-stop outdoor entertainment, including a live band and DJ, fire acts, contortionists, street performers and entertainers. Also, a NEW Screamfest Six flash mob will wreak havoc across the farm.

“We’re delighted that Screamfest has been resurrected after having a year away and it’s going to be even bigger and better than before, filled with even more entertainment, and new scares.

“We really want people to have a great night out filled with screams and laughter. That’s why in addition to the five scares we’re putting on more live acts and entertainment throughout the night. It’s sure to be our scariest year yet with non-stop frights guaranteed throughout the night!”
