Members can use this section to introduce themselves and find out who's building Daleks near them. Please post in the sub-forum that relates to your location and also supply a town or regional location.
When introducing yourself, you might also want to add your location to the Member Map. This will greatly increase your likelihood of finding friends and help, locally.
Did you or someone you know meet/photograph a Dalek in the 60's, 70's or 80's? Did you take photographs of Daleks at a fete or at the Blackpool Doctor Who exhibition etc? PLEASE email or share your pics here.
For some years now, myself and others have provided content for the ‘sci-fi zone’ at the Weyfest music festival. We are full for Weyfest but our contact man at Weyfest is part of the team setting up a new music festival on the 5th, 6th and 7th August. He is hoping to arrange a similar Sci-Fi zone to Weyfest and is inviting the same groups. Please read through the website here if you think you might be interested.
The Sci-Fi zone would be located in a marquee. I’ve already raised the issue of overnight security for our Daleks, props etc. and received the following. “………. you could have your camping tents/vehicles alongside the marquee or even inside if this is possible but we are also going to see if there is room in the building we will be using as our office and/or maybe even in the main house, they have a lot of wedding receptions there so presumably have space or even if possible put the sci-fi zone or part of it in the house, which of course would be lockable. There will be night security patrols (same team as Weyfest).”
They are looking for Daleks, droids and other sci-fi props. There may be scope for costumed characters but these would need to be easily recognisable, core characters. Entry to the festival and camping is provided, plus the opportunity to collect for charity, but no expenses.
