Blake Event - 11 June 2017
Silver Alaunt
I was wittering on just before about it taking over 4 hours from Liverpool by train and all the changes when I looked back up on all your comments and realised I would need a ticket as it is a limited event. Yikes! I never read the instructions and I might have missed the chance to go! Have booked ticket now. I don't do social media exept email and skype. Very excited about this, my hero will be there and the lady who did the costumes - spoke to her briefly at Cygnus Alpha. Probably have to stay overnight or won't be there in time. Does said village have a hotel or such? Looking forward to meeting friends again.

There's a place called the Cherry Tree Inn nearby (about 5 minutes' drive or 20 minutes' walk - yes, I walked on the edge of the motorway last time due to the lack of a footpath and delay for a taxicab... until I was unexpectedly rescued Smile ). Here is their website: http://www.cherry...co.uk/home

Excellent, Spaceresearcher. I will be happy to finally meet you!


Likewise. Here's to friends and hero's honoring our fallen hero.

Really looking forward to it.

It would be great if you can manage to attend.
I advise you to buy a ticket if your budget allows.
It will be a donation to the Alzheimer charity in Honour of Gareth Thomas anyway.
Then you can decide and organise your trip at ease and without stress.


Look forward to meeting you and many thanks for the advice.

Ticket booked. Smile Grin

Apologies up front for asking a boring question but will the event take VISA card for signing's etc or should I prepare by stocking up on GBP's?

A slightly more interesting question for fellow fans, will Horizon have a stand with treasure troves of fanzines etc available on the day?

So looking forward and preparing in my head.

While we're thinking about plans for that time of year, next year, I've just discovered a concert at the Royal Albert Hall the weekend after BLAKE con that will feature the theme tunes to Close Encounters, Thunderbirds, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, Star Wars and more! It does also include some classical with Gustav Holst's the Planets.

I appreciate this might not be up everyone's street, but it certainly appeals to me a great deal as I love orchestral music and John Williams is one of the best when it comes movie tunes.

Here's the link so can have a look http://www.royala...ectacular/

I shall certainly be getting a ticket for the Saturday matinee! Anyone welcome to join me. To anyone who hasn't been to a classical concert before, don't be afraid, as long as you can sit quietly and applaud when everyone else does you'll be fine. Smile


Dear Clare,
Which seating do you recommend fellow fans go for.

There's the following options on the website assuming of course the 'matinee' refers to the literal meaning of the afternoon session on: Saturday 17 June 2017 2:30 pm.
I'd also imagine being the Royal Albert Hall that this is a Suite and Tie affair?

It looks very exciting and I'm amazed at the light show there also promoting. I was expecting a straight forward orchestral performance in one lighting level. I'd really like to hear the Royal Philarmonic Orchestra live, so here's hoping it's possible to stay for the week and see this event before having to fly back to work. I'm a fan of Holtz's 'The Planet's. It's a musical masterpiece.
Please note it doesn't have an appearance by John William's, it's Mr William's music that's performed. The conductor is Anthony Inglis. It would be great if it was Mr Williams himself but the music is the important thing. Fingers crossed they perform 'The Superman Theme'(as in the original Christopher Reeves Superman, not the new incantation.).

I'm guessing cash will be the way to go.

Now might be a good opportunity to get some GBP before its value rises back up to pre-referendum rates. My friend in America bought GBP the day after the vote and is now quids in (literally!) for her trip to the UK later this month.

Being Americans, we find that if you buy British currency for things like autographs and photos at cons, and items of that nature, it works out for the best. Of course credit cards work well world-wide and you can use them for the more mundane things like hotels and the railways, etc. So if you would like my advice, buy some British Pounds and have them at the ready for things like autos/photos at Blake con. And also- there are some smaller places, like cafes and the odd store which only take cash so be advised and have some cash on hand.

To try and answer your second query, if Supreme Commander is planning on attending the Blake event, then you will have a large selection of Horizon and Blake's 7 related items for sale. You may want to PM her and ask if she is going and will bring her club merchandise. I hope I've helped a bit. See you there!

@Clare. The sci-fi concert at Albert Hall... now that Spaceresearcher has mentioned tickets, I have a question. Brad and I are thinking we'd also like to attend this concert after the Blake con so what do you recommend for tickets? Are we thinking of meeting up and attending together- what do you have in mind? I don't think we can afford not to attend, it sounds really great! Better to make plans now I'd say.

*** Sneak Peek ***

Damien May - known for his gorgeous Blake's 7 artwork - has just shown us his work in progress of the canvas that will be auctioned at the Blake Event.
It's already looking awesome - I can't wait to see the finished product!

Why couldn't we have THAT version of Blake around on the Liberator!? He looks cool!

Re the Space Spectacular...the best seats in the Royal Albert Hall are the rausing circle. You get the fullest sound from the orchestra and a grand-stand view over what's going on. Choose blocks T or U. The 36 seats will have a better view than the 30 ones. I would point out that there are lots of steps to reach this area but there are also lifts.

Mum and I have had seats in block T for the 4 times we saw the Grand Organ Gala and have never been disappointed.

*EDIT* I'm sure some sort of pre-show meet up, probably with lunch thrown in also sounds like a good idea. Will do some research over the coming months, but at least we've got the basics on the table for people to think about.

Thanks, Clare. Sounds like a great day of fun.
