Northern Frights, a horror, fantasy, and immersive events company based in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, is gaining widespread attention for its highly unique and inclusive events. With an impressive range of immersive experiences, from fun children’s zombie survival days to large-scale multi-day conventions and festivals, Northern Frights aims to greatly expand its diverse offerings across many cities in Scotland in the coming years, including Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Inverness, Dundee, and Glasgow.
The company was founded by Laura Ripley, who herself is neurodivergent, with the vision of creating events that would cater specifically to individuals needing safe, quiet spaces and breaks during events in order to feel comfortable and welcome. As a result, Northern Frights goes above and beyond to ensure that all of their attendees, regardless of their needs, feel fully accommodated and included by providing these essential safe spaces and quiet rooms in each of their events.
In addition to their admirable focus on inclusion, accessibility, and meeting the needs of all attendees, Northern Frights also actively invests in and supports the local community by frequently collaborating with local companies and venues. The company sources many supplies and much of their materials from local partners and vendors. They also work to minimize their environmental impact by planting trees in the Scottish Highlands for every event where paper products are used. Northern Frights engages with and supports the local community through various events, initiatives, and fundraising efforts for local charities.
Northern Frights’ events are not only highly inclusive, sustainable, and community-focused but also incredibly fun and imaginative. The company offers a multitude of unique experiences, such as Scotland’s only over 18’s horror campsite event and an exciting prison escape experience at the renowned Peterhead Prison Museum. Their popular Horror Con Scotland event has proven to be a resounding success, now entering its second year, and will be expanding to four separate venues across Scotland in 2024. One notable recent collaboration was with the Aberdeen Science Centre for their Aberdeen Sci-Fi day, providing a day of science fiction-themed fun and learning for both children and adults alike.
Attendees of Northern Frights’ events can also look forward to encountering and interacting with their very own fire-breathing dragons, adding an extra touch of surprise and magic for guests.
With their unwavering commitment to inclusion, sustainability, supporting local communities, and providing unique fun experiences, Northern Frights is quickly becoming one of the leading events companies in all of Scotland. As the company continues to imaginatively expand their offerings and further establish themselves over the coming years, it is evident that any event by Northern Frights is an experience not to be missed.
