Tantalisingly close to achieving its total on Indiegogo – the producers of Life After Flash have added another titan from the cast to the upcoming 35th anniversary celebration with the rare appearance of veteran actor Peter Wyngarde.
The November 28th event is easily the most significant since the original release and definitely the most glamorous. A black-tie screening in London’s BAFTA will be followed by a Q&A Session with the stars hosted by noted Flash historian and Bif Bang Pow! founder Jason Lenzi followed by an after-party where lucky fans can rub shoulders with the likes of Sam J. Jones, Ornella Muti (In her VERY FIRST UK APPEARANCE!) Melody Anderson and the newly-announced Peter Wyngarde. Other notable guests include composer Howard Blake and Special Effects technician George Gibbs with more to be announced.
As if that wasn’t enough, fans will also be treated to the first ever exhibition in the UK of the Bob Lindenmayer original prop collection, featuring among others Sam Jones iconic costume. Gifts from the show are an exclusive programme, lanyard, poster print and EXCLUSIVE Alex Ross print created especially for the show SIGNED by the cast –
