The UK’s favourite independent television channel returns to St Albans for a sixth sell-out show. Fans of classic film and television will not want to miss this unique live experience, presented by Talking Pictures TV at The Alban Arena on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th March from 10.30am each day. For one weekend only, St Albans’ premier events space will host a galaxy of stars of film and television. There’s a great mix of rare screen films and shorts showing on the big screen, including a previously ‘lost’ feature film from the 1960s featuring many much-loved faces. There will also be music, comedy and a chance to meet the stars.
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.
