The Future is Fantastic! And 2nd – 4th October 2015 is going to be a particularly special time to be a fan of Gerry Anderson. Start counting the days: Fanderson will be holding its first full-weekend convention in five years in 2015!
Scheduled to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Thunderbirds and soon after the launch of the new series, there’s never been a better time to attend a Gerry Anderson convention. It’s a chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones. These events are all about making great memories and celebrating with your fellow fans, so we thought we’d share some of our favourite convention snaps to get you in the mood!
The Future is Fantastic offers fans an entire weekend of entertainment, including:
- rare screenings
- special guest appearances and talks
- displays of models, puppets and artwork
- exclusive merchandise
- interactive workshops
…and a few little surprises!
We’ve selected the Holiday Inn Maidenhead as the venue for the event following extremely positive feedback from attendees at Expect the Unexpected, where we celebrated the 30th anniversary of Terrahawks last year.The hotel is a short drive from the AP Films, Century 21 and Pinewood studios, and a vast number of filming locations just waiting to be explored.
Maidenhead is just over half an hour on the train from London Paddington, and the hotel is conveniently located near the M25, M4 and M40 motorways, as well as Heathrow Airport for anyone planning to come from overseas.
Registrations for The Future is Fantastic will open soon, so save the date (2nd – 4th October 2015), and stay tuned to www.fanderson.org.uk for more details!
