Amanda Barrie to appear at the London Film Convention

The London Film Convention is now in its 42nd year. My attention has been drawn to this by one of my lovely Twitter followers (thanks Michael!) The Convention gives fans of classic film and television a chance to meet stars, have photos taken with them and go home with an autograph as a lovely memento.

The next Convention is due to take place on Saturday 19th September and although it's early days, there have already been some guests announced and one has a  strong Coronation Street connection! Leading the field is Carry On and Coronation Street legend, the lovely Amanda Barrie! Amanda of course starred in two Carry Ons, Cabby and Cleo before going on to spend many successful years working in British theatre. Amanda was a fan favourite in Corrie for nearly twenty years  as Alma Sedgewick / Baldwin. She first appeared as the cafe owner in 1981, returning again a year later before becoming permanent in 1989.

Amanda created one of my all time favourite Corrie characters so I'll definitely be going along to meet her at the Convention!

The London Film Convention will be taking place on Saturday 19th September, between 10am-5pm at Central Hall, Westminster, in Central London.
