13th Annual Cult TV Festival, 20-23 October 2006, Hemsby, Gr

Post by Mark Cult TV » Sun Feb 26, 2006 6:57 pm

The Cult TV Festival is a fan-run, multi-stream, charity event in aid of Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) running from noon Friday to noon Monday over weekend of 20-23 October, taking place at the Seacroft Holiday Village, Hemsby, UK.

Visit our website at http://www.cult.tv

We cover a range of shows from sci-fi to comedy to drama to children's TV you may have grown up with from the last 50 years. Anything that can be considered to have a cult following, where the shows stay in your memories long after they were last shown and more recent shows to that demand a repeat viewing.

At the Festival there are many events happening at the same time and over the weekend, so you get to pick and choose what you want to do at any hour of the day. There will be fully researched guest interviews and Q&A sessions, workshops, autograph sessions, Friday night games, the Saturday night Cult TV Awards and Sunday Night star cabaret, episode screenings (including two dedicated 24 hour video rooms), a fan-orientated strand, quizzes, merchandise dealers, discussion groups, different themed parties each night, a free 36 page event brochure etc.

We're a very friendly event for all, we try to encourage our guests to socialise with attendees over the weekend. In the past guests have been known to stay up until 5am socialising in the bar; one guest (a certain Dirk Benedict) found the grand piano in the bar and then proceeded to play away on it for a couple of hours. Some have strutted their stuff on the dance floor in the disco.

So far we have announced our first 13 (of 25) guests.

Full biographies of all guests are available at this link:
