Juat made a quick note under the geekweek episode regarding this convention and to look at the facebook page and like for this so fingers crossed.

All we can do, in the interim, is drum up interest and raise awareness of this :D

January is only 5 months away. To book a location, then guests and facilities, plus promotion.. it's costly and time consuming. I think you've left it too late personally.

If you've never done an event like this before id suggest getting into contract with people who have first for good advice and help.
Gook luck, you've got our support.

As I say, it's January or never. Might as well try.

Any particular reason why it's January or never?


Go for it then, if you can get enough interest.
Only thing that would stop me from going is work.

Same here! Whatever happens though I hope this can happen.
The only way is onward, there is no turning back.

Ditto, it would be mad not to capitalise on the renewed interest in Knightmare in order to push for this to come back to our screens ;)

Hey all,

Long time lurker here (although I only registered recently) and first time poster. Just wanted to say that I'd be extremely interested in this and if theres anything I can do to help at all I'd be up for that. I'm not quite sure about why it has to be January but theres bound to be good reason for it. The stars appear to have aligned for then it would seem.

Perhaps if someone were able to possibly prod Google and ask them for an annotation on the Geek Week video linking to a post about it on the site in order to promote it that'd help?

I think it's imperative something like this happens, especially given the recent timing of things. It may be beneficial in helping to secure funding for a new series of Knightmare by showing the interest in the program.

Yes!

I will have returned to Belfast from Australia in mid December, so perfect timing for me. I will definitely make the trio over!

Wasn't it the Norwich Sci-fi convention where Dr Who and Star Wars fans 'clashed' earlier this year?

Not sure if there's a fandom KM fans would clash with? ;D

Would it be possible to do a Kickstarter so people are effectively buying tickets in advance? Though I suppose we'd need an agenda in place before that.

Kickstarter is a possibility.

We're trying to work out costs at the moment.

Nope, it was star was event, some who fans were getting autographs.
The Norwich sci-fi convention happens in September, and will be awesome as always. That incident wasn't really an instant just some people having an argument. They way the press spoke it was a war zone, honesty it wasn't. I wont go into details here because it's not appropriate and the issue has been fully resolved.. thankfully their all playing nicely now and raising lots of money for charity (which is what it's all about)


Fun house.. sound about right, or Virtually impossible, they replaced Knightame for that? what was worse it was a broadsword production. ewwwwww
