Supercelebration – limited on-the-door places available

Since registrations to Supercelebration closed last week, we’ve been inundated with enquiries as to whether club members can turn up and pay on the door.

We’re delighted to confirm that we have a limited number of spaces available, and that more space is available on Sunday than Saturday. So, it will be possible for members to turn up and pay on the door, but please remember that space is limited, so turn up as early as possible to not only secure a space, but to experience as much of the convention as possible.

If you’d like to be sure of getting in, you can ‘reserve’ an on-the-door place right now, buy a Supporting package, and upgrade to a full day pass on arrival. Note, however, that even Supporting registrations will close this Wednesday, 18th September.

Remember, you must have set up your Fanderson account in order to buy anything from us.

Even more Terrahawks! John Lee is coming to Supercelebration

We are excited to reveal that Terrahawks modelmaker John Lee will be attending Supercelebration in September.

Working under Special Effects Director Steven Begg and alongside fellow modelmaker Steve Woodcock, John designed and built many of the weird and wonderful space craft that appeared in the series. He has since gone on to amass a wealth of credits as director of photography on film and TV.

John will be joined at Supercelebration by fellow Terrahawks production crew members Steve Begg, Peter Tilbe, Gary Tomkins, Terry Adlam and Kaye Main.

The convention takes place from 20th to 22nd September at the 2019 Holiday Inn, Maidenhead.

Tickets for club members to Supercelebration start from just £75 per person for one day, or £130 for the whole weekend. In this challenging financial climate, we’ve managed to keep the ticket price the same as our Special Assignment convention in 2017.

That’s because we’re a fan club and no one is taking a salary.
