FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY UPDATE
September 2017 marks the 50th anniversary since 'Arrival', the first episode of 'The Prisoner', was first screened, and, as announced by TUW, to celebrate there are not one, but two, official events taking place - and both are gathering pace in terms of their content.
NETWORK, who own the distribution rights for the series and have, of course, released the series on DVD and Blu-Ray (pictured left), are organising the UK event, taking place on 29th September in Portmeirion itself. More details will be announced over the coming months.
Over in the USA, in Seattle to be precise, registrations are now being taken for PrisonerCon2017, with countless special guests (including Jane Merrow, Annette Andre, Norma West, and many others) already confirmed. The event takes place over the weekend of 29th-1st in several venues of the city. Click HERE to visit the official website of the event and to register.
**Please note the above two events are so far the only OFFICIAL anniversary events taking place. Any other events purporting to be part of the official 50th anniversary celebrations are NOT officially sanctioned by rights holders.**
