In just a few weeks time, the Vincent Price London Legacy Tour will kick off on 4 November celebrating Vinnie’s passion for the UK, where he filmed some of his most iconic films like Theatre of Blood, as well his passion for food, with the UK launch of the 50th anniversary edition of his and Mary’s celebrated cookbook, A Treasury of Great Recipes

Throughout his 50 years movie-making career, Vincent travelled the globe to make in excess of 100 features, with 13 of them filmed in the UK. Over the five days, the festival will visit the locations used in three of them: Witchfinder General (1968), with a trip to the historic medieval town of Lavenham in Suffolk; Cry of the Banshee (1970), with a lunch tour of Grim’s Dyke Hotel, the former home of dramatist WS Gilbert in north London, and Theatre of Blood (1973), with a walking tour of Kensal Green Cemetery.

In this London exclusive, staged at Barts Pathology Museum, one of London’s hidden gems, Victoria will present a special multi-media presentation dedicated to her dad and his lifelong passion for the arts and his love for the UK. Also included will be a screening of the sci-fi cult, Scream and Scream Again, (which is being shown also to honor the late Christopher Lee and the legendary Peter Cushing).
