In the darkest depths of Cornwall a mass of activity is happening, as a team of creative people start to build one of the largest Halloween events in the UK. The Camel Farm on the Lizard will host this ghoulish mini-festival.

The event comprises of 12 themed venues amongst which the Morgue, the Ghost ship, Death’s Disco and a giant UFO that has just landed on the farm next to a kooky fairground.

These venues will host some of the top music acts in the UK such as Leftfield, Orbital and Sister Bliss.

Here’s a sneak peak at what we’ve been busy designing and building - guests will enter our tent through a giant clown’s head that leads through a twisted woodland entrance popping up into the main tent.

Here they’ll be transported into a fantastical dark world of the travelling carnival. With amazing bespoke themed 3D décor, animated by 20 circus performers, immersing the guests into the Carnival of the Damned.

  1. A lifetime of being told: "we are nothing extraordinary; to emerge is pretentious and wrong; to adjust is vital; to be diverse is awful; the aggregate great must be served even to the determent of our own being; we should bolster; we should never oppose; to question power is naturally malicious; the larger part is constantly right; don't raise some static;" - makes a periodic considered example faintness, frequently abandoning us with no feeling of our capacity.
