Actors Sheryl Lee and Dana Ashbrook will attend the sold out 2014 Twin Peaks UK Festival this Saturday in Whitechapel.

Lee played Laura Palmer and Ashbrook played Bobbi Briggs in the cult classic. The festival will also be the launch for a special edition brand of coffee named after creator, David Lynch.

Twin Peaks was a surrealist American murder mystery TV drama created by Lynch and Mark Frost in 1990. The series ran for two seasons and was followed by a feature film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me in 1992.

2014 has been an exciting year for Twin Peaks fans as the full series and feature film was re-released this year in Blu-ray. The box set, Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery, includes 90 minutes of deleted scenes from the film.

It was also announced last month that Twin Peaks will return for a nine-episode arc in 2016, after 25 years off air. Frost and Lynch will write the new series and Lynch will also direct.

Twin Peaks is often heralded as the “golden age” of risqué television. It is also credited with paving the way for other experimental crime dramas such as The Wire and The X-Files. Many series have referenced Twin Peaks, including The Simpsons and The Killing.
