About

This is an extra fundraiser for guests to get rewards for attending the event OR getting extras that won't be available on the website if you can't come. The event is obviously already funded, but you have a month to get extras for cheap before main tickets go on sale.

We're a small Sci-Fi and Fantasy con in North London, UK, hoping to bring stars from all parts of the science fiction fandom world.

This may include but is not limited to:

  • Doctor Who
  • Star Trek
  • Supernatural
  • Avengers
  • Torchwood

I've got some cash, but where does it go?

The extras will be spent on getting some more awesome stars. Currently we have a limit of 10 special guests, so extra funding will mean more guests.

The tickets are limited to 600-1000 guests, to provide a calmer, more intimate and personal atmosphere with the other fans and special stars.

The Event will have:

  • Photo-ops
  • Autographs
  • Signings for your own collectables
  • Panels
  • Merchandise
  • Coffee lounges with guests

Within the autograph room, merchandise stands will be lined up against the wall opposite to the celebrities, so if you're waiting for your photoshoot time, hang out around the merch until your celeb is called.

Yeah, but what's a coffee lounge?

If you don't know already, a coffee lounge is an area where you (and sometimes other guests depending on how many tickets have been sold) sit in a coffee lounge with the special guest of your choice and have lunch with them. Pretty self-explanatory, actually.

If you can't come to the event, have a look at the reward tier for the various pledges, as pretty much everything there is something that can be made for you or sent to you before or after the event. So you still get to benefit from it!

Risks and challenges

The risk with conventions of course is whether or not we would have enough funds to pay the special guests afterwards. To prevent anything happening, we will waive their cancellation fees (which can sometimes cost them hundreds of thousands) in return for a lower appearance fee. We have also got a "cancel for free up to 2 months before the event" contract with the venue, so if worst comes to worst, we can refund everyone without money lost. Of course there is also the challenge of keeping the event on schedule, as it can get a bit hectic with so much going on, but we have at least 2 monitors in every room already set up which will display the times for each photo-op for each guest, so it's very unlikely that people will miss their turn.
