Halloween Horror Competition – Win Tickets to Warwick Arts Centre

27 10 2011

As the Halloween Horror evening draws ever closer, more and more people are starting to talk about Read Horror and our spectacle with David Moody, Gary McMahon and Adam Nevill at Warwick Arts Centre.

Not only have Un:Bound and Jim Mcleod’s Ginger Nuts Of Horror running news stories, but Jim was kind enough to invite David, Adam, Gary and I over to GNOH for a quick interview on Halloween Horror Night. Please do read the interview and get psyched for what promises to be a most enjoyable – and terrifying – night of horror fiction.

In the meantime, we’re giving away two tickets to the event. To be in with a chance of winning a ticket simply send an e-mail to entitled ‘Halloween Horror Competition’. In the body of the e-mail please explain why we should give you a ticket to the evening. The Read Horror staff will choose their ten favourite entries and then pull two winners – from the ten – out of a hat. Please only enter this competition if you will be able to attend the event on Monday 31 October 2011. Entries close on Saturday 29 October 2011 at 12:01am.

Alternatively, if you have to buy a ticket right now, follow the link to buy tickets to Halloween Horror Night at Warwick Arts Centre.

Good luck!
