The voice of Thriller is back!
The distinctive, iconic voice of Vincent Price can be heard once again on a new 12″ EP featuring a never-before-released recitation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Conqueror Worm fused with a pulsating electronica score from London-based electronica outfit The Core.
Pressed on coloured vinyl with artwork designed by celebrated illustrator Graham Humphreys, this Limited Edition EP (300 units) is now available to order directly from our VP shop on this site for only £14.99 (excluding postage). One copy per customer.
With Spring is almost upon us, here’s the latest news from the Vincent Price Legacy UK.

Amsterdam &Vienna | The Two World Capitals Tour
September 22 – September 30, 2018
Inspired by the 90th anniversary of Vincent’s Seven Capital Tour of the Art Capitals of Europe, Victoria Price and myself invite you to join us on a cultural tour of two of the cities that Vincent visited in 1928: Amsterdam & Vienna. We’ve planned an exciting cultural itinerary, which will be attractive to both travellers who have never been to Europe before, as well as for seasoned visitors.
Our new company ESC TOURS creates unique itineraries that include both travel highlights as well as unique cultural experiences that allow travellers to get beneath the tourist experience and develop a deeper connection with each country. This two-city tour includes museums and castles, World Heritage sites, exploring parks and neighbourhoods, food adventures, musical entertainment — and much more!!
If you are interested in finding out more about this trip, please sign up following this link: https://www.esctours.com/contact/
You can also email us with questions at email@example.com
For those of you who have travelled with us before and consider yourselves the more adventurous type, we are also offering an Off the Beaten Track: Austria & Germany trip from 30 September 30 – 9 October. We will only have a limited number of seats for this trip, and first priority goes to previous ESC travellers. If you are interested in this trip – or both trips – please let us know vie email as soon as possible.
THE PRICE LEGACY BOOK COLLECTION
Victora is currently on the road promoting her inspirational memoir The Way of Being Lost: A Road Trip to My Truest Self, which is available in the US from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Indiebound.
I am working with the publisher on bringing Victoria back to the UK for a book tour, where all of the Price Family Legacy titles will be getting their first-ever UK print run in November.
These will include Vincent’s visual memoir, I Like What I Know, his tribute to his canine pal The Book of Joe, and all of his cookbooks, including Cooking Price Wise. I am ooking for suitable venues to host Victoria.
So, if you know of a great little bookshop, art gallery, cinema or restaurant in your area of the UK or Ireland that might be able to help, then do get in touch with me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Well that’s all for now folks – hope you are enjoying the snow.

THE SOUND OF VINCENT PRICE
MY FIRST TRIP ABROAD
Tomorrow I head to the US to meet up with Victoria Price and a group of dedicated VP fans for the start of the Vincent Price: The Art of His Life tour (which we’ve affectionatey called Camp Vincent II) in New Mexico, Arizona and Hollywood, California.
The full tour package has long been sold out, but in honour of the 23rd anniversary of Vincent’s passing on October 25, 1993, we’ve decided to open up four more spots for the last day of Camp Vincent. This will be a whole day in Santa Monica and Malibu, dedicated to remembering Vincent Price – concluding with a memorial service led by Victoria on the beach where the Price family lived.
