Exhibitor

Over the coming months we'll be announcing a full list of 'Exhibitor' we'll be having at the show.

 C L RAVEN

C L Raven are identical twins and mistresses of the macabre from Cardiff. They’re horror writers, as ‘bringers of nightmares’ isn’t a recognised job title. They spend their time looking after their animal army and drinking more Red Bull than the recommended government guidelines. They write short stories, novels, comics and articles for Haunted Magazine and Living Paranormal Magazine and have been published in various anthologies and horror magazines. Several short stories and novels have also been long and shortlisted in various competitions. Last year, they won third prize in the British Fantasy Society Award.

They were published in the Mammoth Book of Jack the Ripper, which makes their fascination with him seem less creepy. They’ve been working on indie horror film, Clownface and will soon be writing and directing their first short horror film, The Black Kiss. Every Friday night, they host The Graveyard Shift on Vitalize Radio. Along with their friend Neen, they prowl the country hunting for ghosts for their YouTube show, Calamityville Horror and can also be found urb exing in places they shouldn’t be. They also gracefully fall off poles as they learn PoleFit, and ungracefully faceplant as they learn gymnastics.

TWISTED MINIATURES

Myself (Tina) and my sister (Andy) started the business as we both enjoyed the dolls house hobby, but no one was selling the items we needed like heads in jars and all things horror.

We were the original horror/Halloween dolls house creators. We excel in the macabre and fantasy, our passion is horror. We sell all over the world and have featured in UK and USA dollhouses magazines.

We will have a go at making anything we are asked for and we have had some strange orders. I live in Heysham Lancashire and my sister lives in Somerset, so we cover most of the UK for fairs.

SIR DIGBY NEVERMOOR’S BLOOMIN HORRORS

If Sir Digby Nevermoor had known of the creeping menace that awaited him in his expedition to the Muerte Valley he never would have set foot on the steam launch from Whitby that fateful day in June 1850.

What promised to be the botanical discovery of the Victorian age soon grew into an unimaginable nightmare from which Sir Digby barely escaped with his life, and some specimens of that malevolent plant Sanguis Vulgaris.

But it was when those dread tendrils rooted themselves in British soil at the heart of the Empire, that the world was to learn the full terror of what became known as Sir Digby Nevermoor’s Bloomin’ Horrors.

Specimens of Sir Digby’s Bloomin’ Horrors are now available to the discerning collector. Grown in North Yorkshire by Tony & Julie Partington, there are a range of plant varieties to bring an element of horror and humour to your home.

MOSTLY CURIOUS GAMES

Mostly Curious Games is a small independent art company. We aim to create variations on iconic popular culture images. Using classical themes from horror, sci-fi and fantasy we add our own (often steampunk) twist to produce unique art pieces. We are always happy to discuss our techniques and encourage others to have a go at creating their own work. These are some images of our latest horror pieces.
