This week I'll be at the Sci-Fi Weekender 5, a popular event running from March 27th to March 30th. I'll be there reporting for Farsight Blogger and Jedi News along with Mark Newbold, Star Wars Fan Extraordinaire. It's my first full-on sci-fi convention - I usually do fairs and general conventions - so I'm one part excited and three parts terrified. I've heard nothing but good things about this convention so it should be fun!
Now in its fifth cycle, The Sci-fi Weekender continues to promise the ultimate Sci-Fi experience. Quite simply it's a festival of fun and activities for people who love science fiction and fantasy.
SFW5 will be packed with activities for fans: big-name guests, interviews, Q&A sessions, movie screenings, comic workshops, video gaming, music, book readings and plenty more. It's all about bringing like-minded people together for a weekend structured around a core 5 pillars.... the entertaining Imaginarium, the sweeping Masquerade Ball, the Multiple zone culture, featuring, Gaming, Comic, Author, Screening as well as the fiendish Sci Fi London quiz nights.
The Sci-fi Weekender attendees will get the chance to fully immerse themselves in a sci-fi & fantasy culture. Fans can discover how comics are made, discuss burning issues with their favourite author, or be among the first to see exclusive screenings of films and TV shows.
Look out for a full report soon, assuming I make it back alive.
