PM2005 - A GRAND DAY OUT
On Sunday 7th August 2005, the largest "Prisoner" event since the mid-1990s took place when a sell-out crowd gathered in Portmeirion for PM2005 - a one-day celebration of Patrick McGoohan, "Danger Man", "The Prisoner", and Portmeirion in aid of Ty Gobaith Children's Hospice. The event, co-organised by The Unmutual Website and PrizBiz, was held with the kind permission of Portmeirion and Granada Media at the Hercules Hall in our favourite village.
A packed programme of events, including screenings of rare items, special guest interviews, a guided tour, mini moke rides, a raffle, quiz, displays and auction all took place without a hitch. We are delighted to announce that we managed to raise £1042.48 for the charity, and reports are coming in from attendees that a great time was had by all.
Graham Scott (Director), Eric Mival (Music Editor), John S Smith (Film Editor)
and Robert Fairclough (TV historian) were our special guests for the event,
and each gave fascinating interviews and also provided a live commentary to
the episode "The General", as well as sparing the time to pose for
photographs and sign autographs throughout the day.
A full report of the event, including many photographs supplied by event photographer Nick Bennett and others, is online HERE. Thanks to everyone who attended or supported this independent event!
