You, Me, and a Scary Story

“It is said that in the deepest, darkest places – the nooks and crannies that no-one’s been in a long time, that is where we are closest to the unknown. Thank you for coming. This is the best place to create our story.”

This is a 10-15 minute experience for one person at a time. You will be led into an enclosed, isolated space. This space will be in total darkness. There you will receive instructions. Those instructions will keep you safe.

We have collected the stories of real people from around Sheffield and beyond. We want to share them with you.

Don’t worry. You’ll be completely safe.

‘Breaks spine-bristling new ground.’​

'One of the best pieces I visited [at the Souk]... the scariness is mainly down to your imagination.'

This was our part of Theatre Delicatessen‘s Horror Souk, performed in a reclaimed old Woolworths on The Moor, Sheffield.

We opened our doors Halloween 2014, and kept them open until 22nd November.
