An episode of Thunderbirds 1965 will be screened nationally for the first time, as well as two brand new episodes of the eagerly anticipated Season 2, Part 2 of Thunderbirds Are Go.

Dominic Lavery signs up for Special Assignment

New Captain Scarlet

We are so pleased to announce that New Captain Scarlet’s Dominic Lavery will be attending Special Assignment.

Dominic was the Concept Art Director on New Captain Scarlet and directed eight episodes in total. Of course, we’ll also be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the original Captain Scarlet series during the convention, so there will be plenty to discuss with Dominic!


Tickets to Special Assignment start at just £65 per person for one day, or £110 for the whole weekend. We’ve managed to keep the ticket price the same as The Future Is Fantastic! convention in 2015 because we’re a fan club and no one is taking a salary. Saturday-only or Sunday-only tickets do not include the Saturday evening meal or any other refreshments that are included in the weekend ticket.
