Doomsday VIII is the premier Bizarre and Mystery Entertainment event in the UK and covers all aspects of macabre magic, freakish sideshow acts and typically anything that might cause you to look away in disbelief!  This is as close as you can get to a real Addams Family gathering, and yes we do consider ourselves a family albeit a strange one!  So why not join us for an inspiring weekend as we delve into the minds of some of Bizarre Magic's greatest thinkers and performers.



Lectures, workshops and performances start on Friday evening at 1800 with the opening ceremony and culminate on Saturday night with the infamous Doomsday social and the Hex Factor.



For those arriving early on the Thursday there will be a chance to explore Bram Stoker's Whitby

Also shameless dealer demos and much merriment!


Welcome drinks from 1800 with giveaways and gifts, the original opening ceremony and back by popular demand 'Doctor Diablo's Carnival Macabre'!

Saturday Evening


The Hex Factor 2017 - ACTS NEEDED!


Do you have what it takes to win this years Hex Factor?  Each performer is given a 5-10 minute slot in which to display their magic routines, disturbing talents or anything you feel suitable for the Doomsday audience. A panel of judges will give feedback but ultimately the audience will decide the best act of the evening.

The winner will be awarded a full performance spot at Doomsday 9 and a pair of free tickets but more importantly they will win the The Hex Factor trophy!

There will be no ticket sales on the door!

As we need to know the number of attendees prior to the event there will be no tickets sold on the day. All tickets need to be purchased beforehand, anyone turning up unannounced will be fed to the hounds.
