The sun sets on Camp Vincent 2016

I'm back home in the UK after 10 days in the American Southwest and California celebrating the life and legacy of Vincent Price with Victoria Price and wonderful group of friends and new fans.

If you follow the Vincent Price Legacy UK pages, then you will have had the chance to follow our adventures. I did try to post here, but it was really difficult accessing Blogger on an iPad.

So for those who want to check it out, just follow this link:

Vincent Price: The Art of His Life Tour | We're bound for New Mexico, Arizona and California!

Tomorrow I head to the US to meet up with Victoria Price and a group of dedicated VP fans for the start of the Vincent Price: The Art of His Life tour (which we've affectionatey called Camp Vincent II) in New Mexico, Arizona and Hollywood, California.

The full tour package has long been sold out, but in honour of the 23rd anniversary of Vincent's passing on October 25, 1993, we've decided to open up four more spots for the last day of Camp Vincent. This will be a whole day in Santa Monica and Malibu, dedicated to remembering Vincent Price – concluding with a memorial service led by Victoria on the beach where the Price family lived.
