Accommodation rates are:

£60 For Friday Only
£140 for Friday & Saturday only
£200 for Fri /Sat & Sunday.

Please Note that the hotel has stated that these rates wll be held untl July. However this does not guarantee that they will not keep rooms available. If they receive a booking from any other party those will be rooms that wil not be available to Festival goers. So you are advised to book as early as possible. You don't have to pay in advance. Just make the booking.

We have had complaints in the past regarding rooms being unavailable THE ONLY solution is as follows
If you are unable to come you can without any problems cancel

- however You do need to book early as they  only keep the rooms until July 31st. So the hotel may start using our allocation.

You can obviously pay now if you wish but you do not need to.

There is only a limited allocation.

You will need to say that you are attending the Festival Of Fantastic Films as they keep a separate allocation for us.




We would like to hear from all fans old and new. Tell us what you would like to see at the next Festival. In addition, we would like some feedback on how we can improve. Tell us what you liked or what you did not. If you have attended in the past but have not done so recently tell us why.
