What A Carry On at the London Film Convention!


The London Film Convention is now in its 44th year.  The Convention gives fans of classic film and television a chance to meet stars, have photos taken with them and go home with an autograph as a lovely memento.

The next Convention is due to take place on Saturday 4 February 2017 and although it's early days, there have already been some interesting guests announced. I am thrilled to announce that the lovely Madeline Smith, who I recently interviewed will be in attendance to sign autographs and meet fans. Among Madeline's most famous films are of course Carry On Matron, Up Pompeii, Up The Front and Live and Let Die as well as classic horror films Theatre of Blood, Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell, The Vampire Lovers and Taste The Blood of Dracula.

The main theme for the day will be actresses who appeared in both Hammer Horror and James Bond films. So we can expect quite a few Carry On actresses in the mix. Although she never appeared in a Carry On, the legendary actress Vera Day will also be in attendance. Vera worked with Carry On star Sid James on both the small and big screen - in Sid's sitcom Citizen James and also in the classic film caper Too Many Crooks.

I will bring you news of further guest announcements as they come through!

The London Film Convention will be taking place on Saturday 4 February between 10am-4pm at Central Hall, Westminster, in Central London. You can find out more by visiting their website here
