People visiting a Moray nightclub this weekend are helping a leading children’s charity – by being scared out of their wits!
What started five years ago as a few lights and a smoke machine at Halloween in the garden of Lee Dow’s home in Buckie has become an annual event that packs out Ji C’s nightclub.
Lee and his business partner Andrew Grant have created a scare-filled show with the help of live actors, inviting the public to explore a series of darkened rooms at the club.
Those brave souls willing to investigate the ghoulish goings on are asked to make a donation at the door – with all proceeds being passed on to MFR’s Cash for Kids appeal.
Lee said that when they first took the show to Ji C’s last year people were lining up around the corner waiting to get in – with many soon charging through the exit door, often minus the kids they entered with.
He said: “We have had a few Adults saying that they are not coming back this year because they were petrified last year!
“It came to the point where we had Adults leaving their kids – they just legged it, we had to take the kids back outside to meet their parents who had just ran.”
Visitors are dared to smile their way through the experience, with Andrew adding: “I would say that just about everybody is pretty much scared by the time they leave – even the strongest.”
The venue was packed out once again last night in particular after it received a boost with coverage on STV’s News at Six.
People are being invited to another frightening journey into the unknown this evening from 6.30pm until 10pm.
