Got mine first thing this morning..now to get the book shelf out plus all the zines and folders and piccies, so looking forward to meeting everybody again.
Cold! You don't know the meaning of the word cold!
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of your window!!

Just booked my ticket. I hope I can make it this time. It's been a long time!

Looking forward to meeting you both.
I look behind me, what do I see? A pair of golden wings seem to be attached to me.

Thank you so much for the early heads up re-the date. I’m hoping/expecting to come over (from Australia) next year for a whole heap of ABBA events - Eurovision and 50th anniversary of Waterloo events. Sadly, the first one is on 6 April. Now I just have to work out if I can stay for just over two months to make it too Seek-Locate-Celebrate as well. That’s a very long and expensive trip. But I’ll sure be trying to make it happen.
 
Paula
Just a quick update. 80% of the tickets for Seek-Locate-Celebrate have been sold in the first 48 hours sales started. If you want a ticket, it has to be now- or else you'll risk it being sold out. Congratulations to Team Blake on the record ticket sales and an all-around great con experience!

Awww - heck!!
The Seek-Locate.... event normally cashes with another event we go to, so we can't normally go.

However - next year's event (2024) is earlier, hence we could have gone - but it's now sold out.

If anyone ends up not being able to attend, could you please let me know and I'll buy your tickets.

Thanks,

Rach. xx

I've got my ticket! I'm very happy that I'll be coming to this!

Hi all,

I hope everyone is keeping well. It's only a few short months until Seek, Locate, Celebrate is here and so I thought it was time to update this thread.

Many guests have been booked, exciting events have been arranged and the t-shirts (yes plural) have been designed. For those of you who use Facebook, much of this info has already been posted on the Team Blake pages. But for those who (like me) don't use or indeed understand social media I'll be updating all the convention announcements here.

So watch this space for more info. FrownAngryFrown

Hi Tyce

Great to have you over. I don't know of too much going on but there is a Dr Who event near Liverpool on 1 June which should have Sylvester McCoy, Sophie Aldred, Frazer Hines and Wendy Padbury in attendance. Details here: https://whoathoylake.wixsite.com/whoh...tercon.com

Oh, I know! I ordered three of the Servalan t-shirts for Maximum Power. A girl has to hijack Doctor Who conventions and needs the proper attire for doing so. Can't just let the Mutoids do it all! Angry

This is true! I'm making up for lost time by buying vintage Ts. One for every occasion. Will you be in the UK this time?

Unfortunately, no, but we'll be there is spirit. Looking forward to all the photos, reviews and general mayhem of the day being reported on this site and others! Don't do anything we wouldn't do! Erm... maybe that wasn't the best thing to say, but someone needs to keep TT in line so please, we need someone to wield a Welsh Street sign just in case!

Just confirmed our t-shirt order with Scott. Scott has outdid himself this year with not only the Travis tee but the Hugbot tee. I had to have both! Looking forward to wearing them. Especially our beloved Hugbot!

Hi all, just popping in with another quick news update for those who are attending the SLC event next month:

TARRANT: Big Finish Audio CD news

We have some fantastic news for you, the stars have aligned and, barring any unforeseen delays, the physical CD audio boxsets of TARRANT, the latest in the 'Worlds of Blake's 7' series, will be available in time for SEEK-LOCATE-DESTROY.

i.imgur.com/cBtLi4S.jpeg

Not only that, but our special guest and Director of this set, John Ainsworth, will have copies available for you to purchase from his table, along with a selection of the other Big Finish items from the Blake's 7 range, some at 'show special' discounted prices, please do pay his table a visit to see what's on offer.

i.imgur.com/eNsqXyl.jpeg

Team Blake is so pleased the timing of the release has coincided with the event. Not only will attendees be able to pick up a copy and save on postage, but we have the two stars of the story, Steven Pacey, the eponymous Tarrant, and Yasmin Bannerman (Dayna) along with the Director, John Ainsworth, appearing at the show as our special guests.

So, you will be able to get your boxset signed (separate charges will apply) should you wish and talk to them about this latest exciting instalment from the worlds of Blake's 7.
