Real weapons are banned. Cosplayers or costumers whose costumes include replica weapons such as a machete or sword may have these items inspected to assure the bladed weapons are not a threat (ie: sharp or dangerous). Crossbows and/or guns must be fake or disabled from working, and again, available for inspection.
If you arrive with any of these items they will be confiscated until you leave the convention – or you may take them away.
Any loaded projectile weapon
Hard wood swords
Daggers, kunai, swords, knives, shurikens – or any article that has a blade or is sharply pointed
Realistic replica firearms
Spears with solid, sharp points
If in doubt please email us, safety is of utmost importance to us, as a zero tolerance stance will be taken. If you are caught illegally carrying a knife or a gun, even an imitation one you can be arrested and prosecuted!
HorrorConUK is a family friendly event and attendees must ensure that their costumes are appropriate in this respect. Nudity is strictly prohibited; costumes must cover your private parts! Any costume that could be deemed as offensive such as displaying of hate symbols (e.g. swastikas), or those that are culturally insensitive, or show disrespect to a specific group or person are also prohibited. Military, law enforcement, medical personnel, government agent, or similarly themed costumes must also be easily identifiable from current, official uniforms. We also discourage oversized costumes and props too. If in doubt, give us a shout!
