For fans of Twin Peaks, the cult American TV series created by writer Mark Frost and director David Lynch, the annual Twin Peaks UK festival is a highlight of their calendar. Celebrating the phenomenal cult hit, that has captivated fans for nearly 30 years, from its launch in 1990 to the most recent 2017 series, the Official Twin Peaks UK Festival was founded by British writer and producer Lindsey Bowden in 2010 and has since become a hugely popular and firm favourite with both fans of the series and with Twin Peaks cast and crew members.

This September the Official Twin Peaks UK Festival returns to London to re-create the eerie, fictional town of Twin Peaks, over the weekend of September 29th and 30th at the London Irish Centre in Camden with activities extended to Camden Square Gardens. Guests will be able to rub shoulders with stars of the show as they dig into some damn fine cherry pie with a cup of coffee. David Lynch Coffee in fact.

Chrysta Bell and David Lynch

Guest stars include Rebekah Del Rio (Mulholland Drive, Twin Peaks), Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs), John Pirruccello (Deputy Chad Broxford) Kimmy Robertson (Lucy Moran/Brennan) and just added to the line up, singer, musician and actress Chrysta Bell who alongside starring in Twin Peaks has collaborated extensively with David Lynch who has co-written and produced two of her albums.

Visitors will be able to visit The Great Northern Hotel, take part in the Mulholland Drive Jitterbug Class, visit the mysterious, seductive Black Lodge and Mr C’s Tulpa Creatives art class will be welcoming new students!

Welcomed by the One Eyed Jacks girls, festival guests will have access to screenings (including Lynch inspired fan-made short films), and live performances from Lynchian burlesque and cabaret troupe The Double R Club, who produce very funny, very dark, sexy and nightmarish scenarios based on their favourite Twin Peaks characters.

The festival Art Gallery will showcase inspired fan art including the popular ‘Return To Twin Peaks’ photographic exhibition by Canadian photographer Blake Morrow; his photos are coming straight from the Series Mania Festival in Lille, France.  Downstairs the Roadhouse/Bang Bang Bar will be hosting live music on both days of the festival, with DJ sets on the Sunday evening.  And there will even be live owls on show in the section named The Call of the Owl – a vital aspect of the Twin Peaks legacy.

This year a special treat will be in store for visitors – a train carriage will be parked in Camden Square Gardens, and will offer a thrilling VR experience – with actual locations shot in Washington State.  To enter the train car the fans will need to go through the circle of trees that is the ‘evil in these woods’ Glastonbury Grove.  After visiting the real-life locations, they can relax in the picnic area.

Details and tickets available at the official site.
