Fans of The Avengers (and I’m hoping there are a few of you reading this blog) will want to make some space in their diaries, as something very special is taking place in Chichester over weekend of 25 and 26 June 2011.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the series, the University of Chichester is holding the biggest reunion of cast and crew that has been seen in 40 years, with Leonard White, Brian Clemens, Honor Blackman and Linda Thorson among the guests. Patrick Macnee won’t be leaving his Hollywood home sadly, but has recorded a message for fans.
The list of names from the series attending is a long and impressive one, which you can read in full on the website, but for now here are a couple of videos which might have you reaching for your credit card if that guest list hasn’t already:
Next we have the weekend’s host, Paul O’Grady, explaining why he loves The Avengers. He’s assisted by a familiar face:
