THEY SAY: “The best horror film ever to be made in Britain –  Melody Maker, 1987

WE SAY: Hellraiser is undeniably an especially grisly spectacle, but it’s also an impressive introduction to Barker’s Cenobites mythos. Genuinely menacing, awash with gore, and wonderfully quotable.



  • Our stewards reserve the right to refuse entry to those who they believe to be under the appropriate age for each film’s BBFC certification who cannot produce photographic ID. Refunds will not be issued if somebody who fails to produce ID is subsequently refused entry to the venue. Please bear in mind that the Caves are an intense environment and may not be suitable for younger children, even if the film is PG rated – parental discretion is advised.
  • Due to the cave’s status as a protected environment, no food is permitted into the venue. Drinks will only be permitted into the venue in plastic containers. Personal alcohol supplies may not be brought into the Caves; the onsite bar will be selling several ales from the Wickwar Wessex range. Please bring ID as our stewards will operate a Challenge 25 policy.
  • Please be aware that drunken or abusive behaviour will not be tolerated in the caves. If an individual appears to be under the influence of alcohol, or is acting in a manner deemed inappropriate by our staff, they may be removed from the venue.
  • It is advisable to wear warm, weather-appropriate clothing in the caves as well as sturdy, appropriate footwear. The caves can be cold, particularly at night, and are uneven underfoot in places. Seating is provided, but guests are welcome to bring additional cushions and blankets if they wish, although it is worth noting that they may get dusty!
  • Please follow the instructions of onsite stewards at all times, and remain on the clearly designated paths. Failure to do so may result in your removal from the premises. In the case of an emergency, the event stewards are fully briefed and will instruct you on the necessary actions to take.
