So, with only four sleeps left to go (and not enough caffeine in Dark Heart Events headquarters) here are the final details we have for the Midlands Goth Festival :)

Kicking off at 10:00am, the Dark Market will open, featuring 25 alternative stalls for you to peruse and shop at. A full list of the confirmed traders is available at - but suffice it to say there will be clothes, footwear, jewellery, CDs and more....

Also, from 10:00am, our Dark Cinema will be showing a selection of films, ranging from cult classic, to new and unseen pieces, including one of the first screenings for a film made here in Birmingham. The full list and screening times is at

If films aren't your thing, or you have finished shopping in the Dark Market, there will be some interesting sideshow games for you to try your hand at. You may win a prize or a go in the lucky dip, but whatever happens, 25% of the money raised on the sideshows will go towards helping our nominated charities, who this year are Cats Protection, Bats Conservation, SOPHIE, KIDS, St Basil's and Leicestershire Rook Rescue.

A list of the games and links to the charity websites can be found at

And of course, there will be Mr Gilman's Museum of WTF - whatever could be in there? You'll just have to see...

At 14:00, our lovely Ghost Walk friends will be offering you the chance to go on a special Ghost Walk, arranged just for the Festival - tickets for that can be acquired separately (a mere £8) at

The Dark Market, Dark Cinema, sideshows & museums will all close at 16:00 allowing us a bit of a breather (and maybe some time for you to get some food) before the doors re-open at 17:30, with T-Lab kicking off the bands at 18:00 - then it's bands all the way to midnight, when the Dark Heart Disco will takeover - until 03:00 on Sunday morning when we'll sadly have to go and pass out!

NOTE: If you don't have a ticket(s) yet (and why the heck not?!) - we can't guarantee Royal Mail getting getting them posted to you if you buy them on-line - so consider buying an e-ticket to avoid having to wait chewing your fingernails - or simply pick some up from the Ballroom Box Office!

Roll on Saturday!
