Strange New Worlds 1

Wednesday 14th October 2015
Ashley with co-organiser Paul and youth Mayor of Worthing

We were honoured to be part of the organising committee for Strange New Worlds 1 - a one-day convention in Worthing in 2010. I went very well with nearly two thousand people through the doors of St Pauls in Worthing. On this page we will try to give a flavour of the event.

The event returned the following year - with Dave Prowse as a special guest. This was at the same venue and was a two-day affair. Sadly there have been no further events, but we are hopeful that Strange New Worlds 3 will happen one day - just needs a venue, a dedicated team and plenty of hard work!

If we find some pics from the second event we will add a page to this section!

Well done to everyone - you know who you are - who organised the two events.
