Nathan Reed, Festival of the Dead organiser, said: “Every year we push the boundaries of a live show and we can’t wait to see the crowd reactions when they meet the new creatures we’ve built to join them at ‘The Dark Carnival’.

“Our guests are also part of the show and seem to up their game each year too, with some incredible make up and costumes. This tour is going to be the best one so far and we look forward to giving our guests an unforgettable experience.”
