Re: UK CONVENTINS

This might be a good thread to post upcoming convention dates in and get made sticky for everyone to see.

Good idea.

This is now a sticky thread for everyone to announce new Star Wars-related convention dates & places in the UK, as they're made public.

And for this sole purpose only, please.

Is Cheshunt on this weekend? The official website is blank with no guests listed and no open forum for the occasion? Not going all that way for nothing...

Will the downturn and the horrendous misjudgements by ebay recently result in the return of the toy fair to promenance? I will be interested to see what happens ths year-I can't see people being able to sit on stock like they have in the past-may see some decent bartering going on finally!

Heroes and Villains 4 will be taking place in Swansea in May, but I can't remember the exact date. Some guests have been confirmed for it already.

Also, should mention that on the weekend of 18th and 19th April Collectormania/Autographica is being held at the Hilton Metropole in Birmingham. Kenny Baker and Dave Prowse have been announced - may be a few more background guys too. Always lots of stalls at CM as well. Free entry after 1PM to one event if you have paid to get into the other in the morning as well.

As far as I know there isn't a website for the Heroes and Villains event and I'll definitely post the date when I know it for sure. Should be seeing the promoter tonight so will hopefully have more details soon.

A new event has been announced for 28th/29th August in Newcastle - "Who Wars" - it's a two day event, entry is £5 per day - the idea I think is that one day will be Dr. Who centric and the other Star Wars. It's being held at the Premier Travel Inn in Newcastle City Centre and confimed Star Wars guests so far are Jeremy Bulloch, Kenny Baker and Dave Prowse. It's a Tenth Planet/Showmasters venture.

I'm popping up to support the show and hope a fair few other scummers will too


Shows are on the decline in the UK, part through a sign of the economic times, but more so through lack of support of people attending.

Everyone moans that the usual events are getting worse, so everyone needs to support new events to help them grow and come back for second rounds etc.

Help break the deadlock and see you there (and if you can't make it there, go to Matt's event too, either way both are free, so support your independants
)

Dave.

Collectormania - The MK Dons Stadium: Milton Keynes - 5th-7th June

I see on the Web site they have the following guests attending:

Lenonard Nimoy
Avery Brooks
John Delancie

Plus other non SW related guests (not many listed at the moment considering it's just over a month away).

Always wanted to get Spocks autograph

With the change in location I hear there may not be as many stalls attending, are many people from here attending?
