The Halloween Hammer Festival Launch Party

Thursday, October 08, 2009 Craig Grobler 0 Comments

This Halloween we open the crypt doors to launch London's most frightening festival - THE HAMMER FESTIVAL.

The festival will bring together an eclectic programme of screenings, ghost tours, readings and a not-to-be-missed, large scale exhibition at Idea Generation Gallery. The show will feature previously unseen artwork from Hammer's classic and upcoming films, rare and original posters and behind the scenes photos as Britain's most successful independent film company - HAMMER - prepare to re-launch for 2010.

Titan Books will also be launching their latest release, Hammer Glamour, at the exhibition. The book features rare and previously unpublished photographs from Hammer’s archive and private collections worldwide. Featuring new interviews, Hammer Glamour celebrates Hammer’s female stars including Ingrid Pitt, Martine Beswick, Caroline Munro, Barbara Shelley, Joanna Lumley, Nastassja Kinski, and Raquel Welch.
