25 Years of Aliens Convention

You may remember I previously mentioned an upcoming UK Aliens convention. The organizers of the event have revealed the first four guests:

 25 Years of Aliens Convention

The convention will also feature the Alien Encounters event (different from the documentary), an Alien Wars style attraction, shooting ranges with Airsoft Pulse Rifles & Nerfguns, prop displays, Q&As with the actors, autographs, photo shoots, the Harry Harris Aliens Collection & Archive, a premiere screening of Aliens Epilogue and potentially the Alien Encounters documentary.

More guests and attractions to be announced once the ink is dry. Be sure to “Like” and follow the Alien Encounters & Aliens Epilogue Facebook pages for information.

    Haha awesome, if it's scary consider me there. Plus, Marines? Don't mind me if I go into screaming damsel in distress mode just to get a little attention ;)

    Wicked. Muahaha. This sounds great.

    What's the Alien Encounter going to be like? Is it suitable for those of a nervous disposition?
    It is very similar to Alien War, so it is scary in places. The plot is completely different though.

    You start with an eight minute briefing and visitor film in the company of Dr Carabass, the lead Weyalnd-Yutani research scientist at the installation.

    After the briefing you're taken in to the main science control room where the research they're doing is explained in detail.

    Don't worry though, you'll be flanked by the heavy Colonial Marine security presence at all times.
    You know, just in case...
     ;)

    Entry to the Sapce Centre is £13. If however, when you buy your ticket you fill in a gift aid form then this will automatically be upgraded to an annual pass, meaning £13 for both days. The Alien Encounter will be £5. So for just £18 you get two days and a go through the AE.
    Autographs from the guests will be extra of course.

    Be great to see as many people from here at the event as possible. Definitely not one to miss.
    There should be some more announcements soon, as if you needed any more reason to attend :)

    Cheers

    Hi guys, got some info for you.

    TICKET PRICES for the event:
    Pay £13 on the Saturday and ask for an upgrade to an Annual Pass by signing a Giftaid form and get the second day free!
     
    £5 for the 'Alien Encounter' – an 'Alien War' style live action experience

    £15 per autograph.
    Photo prices to be announced later but like autographs will be standard fare.

    So... only £18 to attend on both days and take part in the Alien Encounter!
    Or just pay £13 for both days if you're not brave enough to enter the encounter.
    And don't forget, this is an annual pass meaning you could go back to the space centre again for the next twelve months.

    By signing a Giftaid form the National Space Centre gets money back from the taxman because they are a charity. So good to know that all the money is going to good causes as opposed to a businessman's back pocket (I'm lookin' at you Charles-Bishop Weyland!).

    Fair enough. Now I look like even more of a pussy for only doing one of the days. Trevor Steedman himself even trolled me on FB about it FFS.

    Comeon! Just tell her to get the family round for the weekend or something. Or make up a business trip.

    anyone have an idea on how much a ticket will be?

    Still waiting on these but I don't imagine it'll be too much. I'll ask Andy if they have any estimated price.

    Cheers.

    Depending on prices I should be coming - will probably do the whole weekend as it's a fair trek to Leicester from here in Chelsea Tractor-land so there doesn't seem any point in just doing one day.
