More Information/FAQ's

We offer complimentary tickets for carers or personal assistants accompanying guests with disabilities or additional needs at Horror Con Scotland. For a smooth experience, the carer will be granted free access alongside the paid ticket holder.

Owing to previous situations, we require evidence to confirm carer's status. Accepted documentation includes:

Award letters for Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for those under 16, or DLA/Personal Independent Payments (PIP) for ages 16-64.

Letters confirming Attendance Allowance, Carer's Allowance, Incapacity Benefit, or Employment and Support Allowance (ESA).

A valid Blue Badge.

For those with visual impairments, a BD8 registration card or a Certificate of Visual Impairment (CVI).

Relevant local authority registration.

A recognised Assistance Dog ID Card.

Credibility's Access Card displaying at least the Essential Companions (+1) symbol.

Please forward your evidence to Laura@northernfrights.co.uk to receive your carer's ticket. Your patience is greatly appreciated during busy periods.

We're humbled by the requests but we already have charities of our choice we're devoted to Therefore, we're unable to donate any raffle prizes at this time.

To ensure everyone has a great time, we have established the following cosplay behaviour guidelines. Violating these policies will result in being asked to leave the event:

  • Consideration: Always be mindful of your surroundings and other attendees. Avoid blocking aisles, doorways, and stairs when posing for or taking photos. Always ask a cosplayer's permission before photographing them.

  • Prop Conduct: Handle your cosplay props responsibly. Misuse of props, whether yours or not, will lead to expulsion from the event.

  • Decency: Costumes deemed offensive by the casual observer are not allowed. This includes costumes that may cause public concern due to realistic weapon props. Ensure all props are covered when travelling to and from the venue. Outfits should pass the "social media" test, meaning if widely viewed, they shouldn't offend the general public. Offensive behaviour, including non-consensual touching, aggression, inappropriate actions or comments, and excessive swearing, is prohibited.

  • Violence and Nudity: We have zero tolerance for violence, threats, intimidation, or nudity. Any simulated violence must be pre-approved. Costumes must cover more than standard swimwear, and illusions of nudity are banned.

  • Weapons and Props: Strict rules govern the allowance of weapons and props:

    • Prohibited items include realistic firearms, sharp objects, functional weapons, and any pyrotechnics.
    • Allowed items include non-realistic weapons, blunt metal weapons in a sheath, and props that are clearly non-threatening, such as those with a red/orange tip or made from safe materials.

All props and weapons will be checked upon entry, and those not adhering to guidelines will not be permitted inside. Always cover and stow away props when outside the venue to avoid public alarm and potential police interaction.

You will not receive a refund if you are turned away from the event for breaking any of these rules. 

Let's ensure Horror Con Scotland remains a safe, respectful, and fun experience for everyone!
