Blackpool Comic Con 2015

Having to put this here as there's no '2015 events' forum (even though we're more than hallway through the year and we've already had 'Sci-Fi Scarborough' and 'smallspace 4'...)

Announced today...

"Good Morning Conateers!
‪#‎BIGFRIDAYANNOUNCEMENT
‬Back in 1977, fans of The Worlds of Gerry & Sylvia Anderson were treated to something very special in Blackpool: an Anderson Exhibition known as Space City! 37 years later we are proud to be devoting one of our areas at Winter Gardens Blackpool 12/09/15 to ‪#‎SpaceCity2015‬.

ASA / Eagle 6 Forum Group are bringing together the team's private collections! This means original props, miniatures, vehicles, puppets, over 30 costumes, and other original ships not seen in public for over 30 years, plus first class replicas made by the rest of the team! Celebrating Space: 1999's 40th Anniversary with Eagle 1 & 2 plus Alpha, the Command Center set and more! Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Thunderbirds and Stingray with replica puppets and originals from Captain Scarlet and The Mysterons, Joe 90 and more!"


Photos and details of everything else going on can be found here:

So if you're near Blackpool in mid-September it will be worth a visit.

Oh, and Brian Johnson will be there too. :)

Its sounding like it could be one of the best events of the year, I'm actually starting to get excited!

It's such a shame though that the exhibition will only be for one day. But it certainly will be a stunning display. I'm looking forward to seeing things that haven't seen the light of day for decades! :clap:

Sod's law, until the beginning of this year, I had lived all my life about 15 minutes away from Blackpool. Now I'm 150 miles away!-DOH! :rant:

I'm 5,000+ miles away and I'm going. Very excited, besides blowing my savings, but have always wanted to see these models in person. Then a trip down to London to see the Prop Store's exhibit of their auction items. Christopher Reeves Superman suit and the original TNG Enterprise plus so much more. Even got tickets to Rocky Horror Picture Show (another 40th anniversary) with Stephen Fry and Richard O'Brien during the live broadcast, nose bleed section. Still, Oh so excited. ;)

The Gerry Anderson display has now apparently been cancelled by the event organisers. No real reason given.
