For those with the taste for all things creepy and spooky, there’s really no event on the UK calendar that fits the bill better than the Scottish Paranormal Festival. This annual extravaganza pulls in ghost hunters and fans of the paranormal from all over the world for a uniquely exciting and enjoyable festival celebrating the darker side of Life. The event of 2014 was by far the largest and most popular to date with this year’s expected to once again take things even further. Official dates and a full program for 2015 have now been announced and the festival will take place from 31st October until 2nd November 2014 and there is once again expected to be a wide variety of shows, performances and fun filled experiences for the whole family.
And of course, the Scottish Paranormal Festival always makes for the perfect excuse for a hotel stay in Perthshire in this amazing corner of Scotland.
In terms of what exactly to expect, the weekend is a wall to wall tale of workshops, stories and interactive experiences centred on ghosts, aliens, UFOs and anything paranormal. Thousands of people descend upon the area from all over the UK and beyond, most of whom have a somewhat lighthearted interest in the subject. There are of course those who take it much more seriously than others and the festival never fails to attract its fair share of hardcore skeptics.
Suffice to say, it’s a fantastic place for entering into an enjoyable and often heated debate with those who like to share your opinions; or would like to teach you a thing or two. In any case, it’s all in the spirit of good fun and it is impossible to leave without the feeling that you have discovered something completely unique.
While it may appear to sound a little grim and macabre on the surface, the Scottish Paranormal Festival is in fact the perfect event for kids of all ages. Think of it a little like a full weekend of Halloween celebrations of which most are brought to life like never before. From music to dancing to storytelling to the most incredible stalls for buying all manner of spooky merchandise, any kid with a taste for Halloween will absolutely love this unique annual event.
