23 MAY 2017 SIR ROGER MOORE HAS DIED

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the passing of actor Sir Roger Moore. He died in Switzerland at the age of 89. Famous and much-loved through his many TV and film roles, above all The Saint, The Persuaders and of course James Bond, Moore was a versatile and incredibly humorous actor.

Sir Roger Moore also did great things for the children’s fund UNICEF for which he appeared as an ambassador from 1991 on.

We bow to a man who went through life with unrivaled charm and a great heart. Our thoughts are with his family.

Our 2017 festival programme includes two films with Sir Roger, among them ‘THE WILD GEESE’ as well as the Bond thriller ‘OCTOPUSSY’. We will furthermore remember his life and work at the Bond Evening on 08 September.
