So, what’s special about this event? Well, there’ll be cake (probably). More importantly than that though, we’re going to celebrate ten years of bringing science, skepticism, and critical thinking in the best possible way by bringing back our first ever speaker – the one and only Ash Pryce!

Edinburgh Horror Festival Sell Out Act 2016, 2017, 2018
ACT ONE: “Ash Pryce – Paranormal Illusionist” is the brand new show from Edinburgh Horror Festival Sell Out Performer Ash Pryce. Fresh off of a full run of the Edinburgh Festival, with almost 30 productions at the world famous Fringe behind him.
Step into the psychic’s parlour for an experience with the supernatural, the paranormal, things that go BUMP in the night as you take part in a series of mind twisting demonstrations drawing on psychic super powers, spirit communication and the Seance.
Combining psychic phenomena, ESP and spirit communication with stage mentalism, and theatre, the show will skirt the edges of what is real and what is on the other side of the veil.
This is a theatrical magic show – if we do summon demons during the course of the show, we cannot be held responsible for possessions. Please clean up any ectoplasm brought up in fright…
ACT TWO: In the second half, exclusively for skeptic groups, Ash will be looking back over the history of Spiritualism by highlighting some of the most famous tricksters, legal cases and exposures of the Golden Age of Spiritualism. Ash will talk about a history of Spiritualism, mediumship and the role it played in helping create his own area of performance – mentalism. New material looking at the areas that his show ‘How to Talk to the Dead’ didn’t have time to fit in!
Doors at 7.15, kickoff at 7.30
