Hammer celebrations this summer

Classic Hammer is being celebrated at two events in England this summer.

The 11th Fantastic Films Weekend runs from Friday 15 through Sunday 17 June at the National Media Museum in Bradford, Yorkshire. The festival features a heady mix of horror old and new, and this year features a Hammer Gothic strand, curated and introduced by Hammer archivist Robert J.E. Simpson. The strand includes rare big-screen outings on 35mm for The Shadow Of The Cat and Captain Clegg; plus the European premiers of the new HD master of The Quatermass Xperiment, and a new extended cut of Ted Newsom's 1994 Hammer documentary - Flesh and Blood

Renée Glynne, veteran Hammer script supervisor, will also be in attendance and will be interviewed on stage. The Man In Black and The Quatermass Xperiment, both of which she worked on, are screening over the weekend.

Hammer Has Risen From The Grave is a two day celebration of Hammer which takes place at Phoenix Square in Leicester, in association with the CATH Centre at De Montfort University. The festival will include screenings of Hammer rarities and favourites (titles to be confirmed), signings, memorabilia stalls and more. The world premiere of the new HD transfer of The Curse of Frankenstein will take place during the event which runs Friday 13 - Saturday 14 July.

Confirmed guests include: Martine Beswick, Caroline Munro, Jacqueline Pearce, Carol Cleveland, Vera Day, Madeline Smith, John Hough and Renée Glynne. Plus talks from Marcus Hearn, I.Q. Hunter, Peter Hutchings, Jonathan Rigby and Robert J.E. Simpson, and special guest Mark Gatiss.
