Dead on for dinner.

EDINBURGH Dungeon are going back to the roots of Halloween tradition with a Dinner for the Dead.

Bosses at the scary attraction are putting on a dark show steeped in the Pagan festival of Samhuinn.

On Halloween, when the veil between the living and the dead is said to be at its thinnest, pagans hosted a Dinner for the Dead, where an extra place was set to try to summon back loved ones.

The dungeon's Home of Halloween: Dinner for the Dead, running until October 31, features tales from history, mystic predictions and visits from spirits.

General manager Johnny Campbell said: "Edinburgh Dungeon comes to life at Halloween. It's a time for our dark side to permeate the capital and the Dinner for the Dead is perhaps our most chilling show yet.

"The dungeon will become the home of Halloween, guaranteeing visitors less treats and more tricks of the spookiest kind."
