EM-Con Worcester

On Sunday 8th April 2018 the city of Worcester played host to EM-Con which took place at the University of Worcester Arena.  I’d never been to a convention by this particular company before, and I’m glad to report that it was a very enjoyable day, and well organised.

I also took my Uncle (Chris) with me this time, which was his first ever convention.  He definitely seemed to enjoy himself!

Right at the beginning, I managed to get myself accosted by some of the JUDGES from 2000AD!  There are photos and a video (via Chris)!

The celebrity guests were from a good variety of shows and movies, in particular (for me) some of the cast of Red Dwarf, Robert Llewellyn, Norman Lovett, Danny John-Jules, Chloe Annett, and Mark Dexter ; and from Stargate Atlantis, Rainbow Sun Francks.  Slowly I’m completing my collections!  Other guests included John Rhys Davies (Lord of the Rings/Indiana Jones), Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who/Legends of Tomorrow), John Challis (Only Fools and Horses), Colin Baker (Doctor Who), and several more.  There were also a selection of artists.

It was a relatively small and intimate venue, which made you feel much more relaxed than some of the larger events, and you had more time to chat to the guests and browse the merchandise stalls.

Chris, as a Red Dwarf fan, got his Holly T-shirt (which he was wearing) signed by Norman Lovett!  Great fun.  We also sat in for the Red Dwarf Q&A session in the afternoon.  Many laughs were had by all.

A small selection of my photos are below, for the rest see my Full Flickr Album:
