Twin Peaks Freak? This Festival Is For You
It is happening again

Just as David Lynch's nightmarish telenovela returned to screens earlier in 2017, so the Official Twin Peaks UK Festival returns to London this autumn.

Fans of them eerie melodrama will get to meet major characters including eyebrow-wielding Audrey Horne (Sherilyn Fenn), sagacious Deputy Hawk (Michael Horse) and is-it-us-or-is-he-really-dull? James Hurley (James Marshall).

Plenty of this

The festival, now in its eighth year, transforms Hornsey Town Hall into a Lynchian realm of sinister cabaret and endless cherry pie — recreating the Great Northern Hotel bar (nope, not the one in King's Cross), Double R Club, Roadhouse (nope, not the one in Covent Garden) and Black Lodge.

You also get to climb inside a train car and witness the brutal slaughter of Laura Palmer. Which is nice.

The turnout will be way higher than this

The Official Twin Peaks UK Festival is at Hornsey Town Hall, from 7-8 October. Tickets from £65.
