Event description

Description

It’s been home to mad scientists, mutants, vampires and all manner of riff-raff, but for Theatre of Blood fans Oakley Court in Windsor is also where Vincent Price’s vengeful Shakespearean actor Edward Lionheart donned hospital scrubs to decapitate poor Arthur Lowe while ‘playing Cymbeline as it has never been played before’ in the 1973 black comedy horror.

Situated on the River Thames in Berkshire, this Victorian Gothic mansion was, for over 20 years, the perfect film setting for a host of British horrors and psycho-thrillers made at Bray Studios (especially Hammer Films) when they moved next door in 1955. Today, it is a popular hotel that doesn’t shy away from its horror heritage.

Having explored many of the original London locations used in Theatre of Blood over the past two years, Vincent Price Legacy UK curator Peter Fuller is conducting a very special outing on Saturday 22 July and you’re invited.

Peter has teamed up with Mike Grant, curator of the Theatre of Blood appreciation Facebook Group to bring you a fantastic day out in which we shall visit the grounds, have lunch by the river, and take a boat ride to view the former Hammer studios (now private property).

PLUS, as an extra special treat, we will visit the very room where Vincent Price dispatched Arthur Lowe in that infamous scene.

AND, with film location hunter extraordinaire Andy Ellis on hand, we shall also visit some exciting film locations in Windsor itself.

Registration is free and open to 24 attendees only.

Successful attendees will pay for their own transport, lunch and boat ride on the day and a full itinerary will be sent out a week before the event.

Our meeting points will be Paddington Station and Windsor.
