Star one -first B7 convention Wembley
Debbie Cotter
This to the best of my knowledge was the first ever Blakes 7 convention and held at Wembley conference centre. The guests were Paul Darrow, Jacqueline Pearce and Josette Simon (only time she has come to a convention). I am slightly more vague on others as would need to check my photos but think Matt Irvin, Jan Chappell and Vere were there also. It was one day I think (I was there only one day)

Jan was there, yes. And it was the first, though not a 'fan run' convention, and a bit of a shambles (see review in Horizon Newsletter of the time - yes, the back issues are still available to buy...)

I don't remember Mat being there, though he might well have been. Definitely Paul, Jaks, Jan and Josette though. But not Vere - Teal Vandor was the only UK B7 convention Vere attended (he also attended the excellent Orbit in the USA (New Jersey) back in 1988 I think it was.

Again I need to look for my photos...

Maybe this is why Josette never did another, she was so put off by this one. I don't remember alot about it. My photos jog the memory but It was my first conventional as well and was I was nearly out on the floor at being in the same room as THE Paul Darrow, I don't think I noticed it not being run very well and being my first I had nothing to compare it to. I know they had props from the show as I have a picture of my holding a liberators gun.

Photos please!!!!!
I have no idea how I found out about Teal Vandor in 1981, because we didn't have the internet, just snail mail and phones.
I know that I went on my own, which was a very nevous experience for me, I can tell you.
But I did meet lots of people, some of whom I'm still in contact with.
And yes, I felt the same way when confronted by The Mr D!!! (And me, a married lady with 2 young children! Shocking.)
Hopefully, daughter no. 2 is coming over tomorrow, Saturday, to help restore all the links to my Photobucket account, so we can all compare photosGrin
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

I will have a look for some but the one of me with liberators gun eek! The hair!
I was a member of the LPF fan club I think I heard of it from there or there was a club/sci-fi group called Oracle I think.

Snap!! So was I a member of the LPF, but I think I may have joined after Teal Vandor. I have a few of their newletters and Oracle Zines which I shall be bringing with me to the fan gathering in April. Don't worry about the hair!!!

I went to this convention as I lived very close by in Ealing at the time. Peter Tuddenham also attended and Gareth Thomas arrived right at the very end. The programme was awful with a nice cover but barely anything in it. I remember a fan had made a scratch built model of the Liberator and I contacted him afterwards and he made me one and also a Scorpio both long since gone.

Technically Gareth didn't 'attend' the convention, he had come to collect a friend who had attended (Judith Cross - the B7 production secretary) and it genuinely didn't occur to him that he would be instantly recognised (Blake - at a Blake's 7 event!!) It was very funny. Judith persuaded him that as he was there and many fans had recognised him and been very excited perhaps he could just stay for a short while and say hello to people, let them take photos, etc. Which he did.
