Festival of The Dead

After a sellout tour across the UK in 2018, Festival of The Dead returns to Glasgow's O2 Academy on Saturday 9th October!

Festival of The Dead

About Festival of The Dead

A unique combination of carnival, circus and clubbing inspired by the art of the Day of The Dead celebration.

The most imaginative, immersive and out right wicked events any where on planet earth.

Giant puppets and incredible creatures join breath taking performers to bring you a show straight from the depths of the afterlife.

“Quite simply, this is one of the most unique events you will have ever been to.”

Please note: our guests are as much a part of the show as the performers. Come dressed in your deathly best.
