Twin Peaks Festival
Just as David Lynch's nightmarish telenovela returned to screens earlier this year, so too the Official Twin Peaks UK Festival returns to London this weekend. 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).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 (not the one in King's Cross), Double R Club, Roadhouse (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. Something to look forward to then. The Official Twin Peaks UK Festival is at Hornsey Town Hall, from 7-8 October. Tickets from £65.
