The Norwich-produced children's TV show Knightmare will return to the city this weekend.

The fantasy challenge, which sent blindfolded adventurers through a virtual reality dungeon, has gained cult status as an internet obsession for thousands of thirty-somethings who enjoyed it as children.

A Knightmare convention will be hosted in the former Anglia TV Studio E (now Epic Studios) in Magdalen Street, where fans will be able to play some of the dungeon scenes and puzzles reprised in last summer's Knightmare revival project for Google/YouTube.

The curtain raiser is a Friday evening performance of Knightmare live, the interactive theatrical comedy hit of last season's Edinburgh Fringe, which has played at London's Bloomsbury Theatre and The Brighton Comedy Festival. Contact the box office on 01603 727727.
