Following a successful debut year, the team at The Canterbury Tales are delighted to reveal that its Halloween event Contagious has been shortlisted for ‘Best New Event’ at the SCAR awards, the only awards in Europe dedicated to the scare industry.
Contagious sees The Canterbury Tales visitor attraction transformed into a morbid version of medieval England. Set in a time when the Plague has swept across the country and contagious citizens lurk in every corner, brave visitors must navigate their way from an infection-filled London to Canterbury, searching for a cure along the way. Live actors and appropriately terrifying set dressing ensures the Contagious experience is one to remember.
Lyndsay Ridley, General Manager at The Canterbury Tales, commented: “I am so pleased to hear that Contagious has been shortlisted for a SCAR award. The event met with a really positive response in our debut year last October and we are very much looking forward to Contagious returning to The Canterbury Tales this Halloween. ”
The award will be decided by a judging panel who will consider each nominated attraction in turn. Having visited every scare event across the UK and beyond, the judging panel are perfectly placed to award the best of the best. The results will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony in May at the ScareBALL, part of the annual ScareCON show which this year is hosted in nearby Margate.
