Twin Peaks Weekender - Battersea Arts Centre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
TO MARK the twentieth anniversary of the first UK screening of David Lynch’s groundbreaking TV series, Battersea Arts Centre is presenting the Twin Peaks Weekender – on Saturday, October 23 and Sunday, October 24, 2010.
An epic event – 32 hours in total – it features Lynch inspired performances, games and live music in spaces around the building, with a thirty two hour screening of every episode of Twin Peaks, back to back, in the magnificent setting of the Grand Hall.
There will also be food and drink ‘like they serve at the Double R Diner and free bottomless coffee for all’.
Upon entering, audiences are free to explore the building, or to get comfortable in the hall with their own blankets and cushions for the screening. True Twin Peaks freaks can win free entry to the weekend by entering a competition to create a shrine to Laura Palmer.
Created by David Lynch and Mark Frost, Twin Peaks, rated by Time magazine as one of the ‘100 Best TV Shows of All Time’, follows the investigation into the murder of Laura Palmer, a teenage schoolgirl, in a small American town.
David Lynch is a three time Oscar nominated director, whose films include Blue Velvet, The Elephant Man and Mullholland Drive.
Price: £19.50/£35 gallery ticket.
Time: Saturday 11am onwards.
