Yep, that’s the Tardis at Red Rocks and yes, Dr Who is coming to Hoylake!
Here’s a date that many kids (of all ages) will want to circle on the kitchen calendar: Saturday, 28th July, 2012 – otherwise known as Who In Hoylake.
I spotted details of this interesting event so I contacted the event organisers. Fans Like Us is a Wirral-based Dr Who fan group and promote Dr Who convention events. Here’s what they say about Who in Hoylake, along with venue and ticket details:
From the team who brought you six sell-out events at the Cavern and the Fab Cafe…
We bring you our first event in our home town – Who at Hoylake!
Who at Hoylake is an event celebrating all things Who, past, present and otherwise timey-wimey. As always, this will be an entertaining and fun event, once again at a world-class venue – Jack Rabbit Slim’s in Hoylake.
Guests confirmed to date (subject to work commitments) include:
MARK STRICKSON – a fantastic guest. Mark’s work and family life take him away from the UK most of the year, so it’s no exaggeration to say this appearance is a Fans Like Us exclusive.
LOUISE JAMESON – a much-loved stage and television actress. Louise is making her Fans Like Us debut, and we trust you’ll welcome her with open arms!
SOPHIE ALDRED – local girl Sophie makes a return to her homeland to be with her people.
TERRY MOLLOY – the most evil genius the galaxy has ever seen, intent on spreading race war to the farthest sectors of the universe. He once played Davros, you know.
CHRIS JURY – as if being in Dr Who were not enough, Chris was also a star of TV’s Lovejoy. These days he works behind the camera, and this is a rare convention appearance.
And the wonderful COLIN SPAUL, actor, raconteur and all-round great bloke
The day will be MC’d by JOHN COOPER, veteran stand-up and inveterate Dr Who fan!
