Are you ready for Evil on Sea?

  • 31 July, 2019
  • On the pier

It may only be July, but Clacton Pier is busy preparing for the cold,
dark nights of Autumn with a truly terrifying experience.

Preparations are underway to introduce ‘Evil on Sea’ to heighten the
thrills for teenagers and above – along with the existing family orientated
Halloween festival for children.

The aim is crank up the scares and dares using the Jolly Roger as the
base for a host of horror.

The event will run every Friday night and Saturday during October with
extra dates on Thursday October 31, as well as November 1 and 2 and will test
and challenge the senses to the extreme.

Pier Director Billy Ball said a new-style Halloween festival – which replaced
the long-running Scarefest last year – went down well but was very much aimed
at younger children.

“We feel we are now ready to up our game and bring in something for the
teenagers and young adults that they will go away talking about for months,” he

“We are working very closely with a company which will put on the Fear
the Pier event – and it will also include adventure golf, exclusive use of the adult
rides, the walk through experience and a free drink in the bar in the price.

“The Pier itself is pretty scary at night but we will be adding in
characters, audio and lights and other special effects which will make the
hairs stand up on the back of your neck.”

Customers will follow a trail around the landmark structure through
rooms in the Jolly Roger that will provide thrills and spills from start to

“This is another step up from our normal Halloween activities,” added Mr
Ball. “There will be a limited number of spaces available for this night of
fright and it will be open to those 13 and over at a price of £19.99.”

Bookings will be taken online on
from August 9.

Full details of the Halloween festival for families to run every day
through half term will also be released soon.
