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.
Join Valerie on this unique and possibly last opportunity to do a tour of filming locations with an original cast member from the classic series.
The coach tour will be a great chance to meet Valerie in person, hear stories about her time working in the Carry on Films and see some of the locations from the classic film series. The perfect day out for a Carry on fan!
In a full day of live shows and laughter in celebration of the Carry On series, the official Carry On historian Robert Ross presents trailers, rare clips, special guests and a few surprises from this beloved comedy franchise.
