AnderCon is Go!

Around this time two years ago, I was giving a little, well-deserved plug to PhoniCon, a new science fiction convention held at the Exeter Phoenix, where I used to DJ during my time on Phonic FM. Now I'd like to switch from sci-fi to my childhood love of Gerry Anderson and promote a different
convention from rather further afield.
AnderCon 2015 is a celebration of Anderson's genius and artistic vision, which resulted in some of the most advanced TV shows of the time whose influence and popularity endure today. Over the course of two-and-a-half days in June, Leicester's cultural quarter (yes, there is such a thing) will be teeming with Anderson fans, keen to celebrate the past and look ahead to future projects.
If you even faintly remember Stingray, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet or Space: 1999, AnderCon is the place to be. There's tons of original puppets and props on display, and you could meet three of the original Thunderbirds cast to mark the show's 50th anniversary. But it's not just a nostalgia trip, with exciting previews of Ultramarionation's new show, Firestorm. It is not to be missed!
Anderson will be based at the Athena Leicester from Friday 12th to Sunday 14th June. Tickets are on sale now via, which also has full events listings and advice on how to get to the various venues hosting them. If you need any further convincing, check out this short message from Scott Tracy:
