Horrorfest 2019 is the first of an annual Halloween tradition here in Canterbury. Setting the table for an All Hallows Eve feast for years to come. A festive carnival of ever-changing horrific tricks and treats.
To begin the tradition this year CSRfm are hosting the very first Horrorfest event: a comedy murder mystery radio production called “DeadAir”. It will be an interactive experience, with listeners being able to call, text and get involved through CSRfm’s social media to figure out the identity of the murderer as the show progresses.
The first scene is laid in CSR’s Studio Red as a few presenters attempt to put on a live Halloween special, only it all goes wrong when the first thing they see is Derek dead on their freshly hoovered studio floor. Follow them as they become ‘secret’ murder detectives and hopelessly and hilariously fail to keep the ever-growing number of deaths a secret from the authorities, all whilst not at all keeping calm and carrying on…
All main actors are current CSRfm presenters with featured guest roles by past show guests and a special interview with Dr. Michael Goodrum, Senior Lecturer of History and Superhero and Gothic Horror Specialist at Canterbury Christ Church University.
The show will air on CSRfm and 97.4fm on Halloween between 9am to 6pm.
Afterwards there will be a special creative hour after the show between 6pm and 7pm featuring local poets, spoken word artists and story tellers, such as: Sam Tate, Henry Maddicott, Alys Parsons, Thomas Cleary, Alex Brand, Claudia Volpe and Isabella Poretsis.
