on Banned Weapons & Props
For legal reasons and on the grounds of health and safety, we cannot allow real weapons into the convention or fake weapons, such as for use in Scareplay or costuming, which could still be dangerous and such items will be checked at the ticket desk on entry to the convention. This also applies to other props such as staffs or staves.
For example crossbows or guns must be fake and disabled from working, machetes or swords must not have a sharp blade, so will be made of rubber or foam.
It is illegal to carry offensive weapons in public and HorrorConUK counts as a public place -so if it would be illegal to carry the item in public then please don’t bring it to HorrorConUK.
Any loaded projectile weapon
