Opening/Closing Announcement

It’s August the 13th, which means it’s time to start revealing what we’ve got in store for you this year!  It’s our 13th festival, and what better genre to celebrate than the slasher movie - we invite you all to join us at Camp Abertoir on November 13th for six days of the best brand new movies and cult films, guests, special events, talks and loads more!   To set the tone for this year’s festival, we will be opening the gates with a screening of the brilliantly entertaining slasher movie Sleepaway Camp… and if you haven’t seen it before, avoid reading spoilers at all costs!

The festival will be closing on Sunday 18th November not with a film, but a musical show… comedian Rob Kemp and his award-winning comedy act The Elvis Dead.  Rev up the Delta and come on a trip to a cabin in the Tennessee backwoods via Graceland, to witness cult classic horror movie Evil Dead 2 reinterpreted through the songs of Elvis Presley (!).  It really is what it sounds like!  A hilarious, thoroughly enjoyable way to close our 13th edition, and one that we know you’ll all love!

Abertoir the 13th will be journeying deep into the slasher genre in our own unique style, and if you’re wondering where Friday the 13th is in all this, just you wait!

More will be revealed soon, including our guest of honour, but in the meantime we can announce that full six day passes will be just £60 and be on sale via the Aberystwyth Arts Centre on September 3rd.  So for now, get the camping bags ready for a one-way journey to Camp Abertoir that you’ll never forget!
