We’re back with a vengeance and we’ve pulled all the stops out this year to bring you our biggest and best event yet, flying in Lone Fleming from Spain and Brigitte Lahaie from France. We’re also excited to bring you Diane Franklin, American star of Amityville II: The Possession. In addition we will be joined by Zombie Flesh Eaters hero Ian McCulloch, Scream and Scream Again’s Christopher Matthews, Konga’s Jess Conrad OBE, Hammer Slave Girl Edina Ronay and the Big Zapper herself, Linda Marlowe. And of course it wouldn’t be DarkFest without our regular roster of Hammer Glamour legends: Madeline Smith, Caroline Munro and Pauline Peart. We hope Martine Beswick will join us too, but this has not been confirmed yet.

As anyone who has been before will tell you, DarkFest is about much more than watching great films on the big screen and meeting legendary genre celebrities. It’s also a wonderful social gathering of like-minded folk, many of whom seem to spend most of the day chatting happily in the bar rather than watching the films. If you’re one of them we’ll gladly join you for a livener or two. And when you’re not chin-wagging or watching a movie you can browse the dealer tables selling film memorabilia, DVDs, Blu-rays, stills and posters. We’ll also be showing lots of classic short films and trailers and are very excited to be able to welcome back Dr. Haze and his amazing Circus of Horrors team, who will be providing entertainment between film showings.

Films to be screened: Zombie Flesh Eaters, Faceless, Amityville II: The Possession and Tombs of the Blind Dead.

Guests: Lone Fleming, Brigitte Lahaie, Diane Franklin, Ian McCulloch, Christopher Matthews, Jess Conrad OBE, Edina Ronay, Linda Marlowe, Caroline Munro, Madeline Smith, Pauline Peart

Please note that the films and guests are subject to change, and should the event have to be cancelled due to circumstance beyond our control, all ticket costs will be refunded immediately.
