SF Ball Southampton -New Lineup

With just under two weeks to go until the hotly anticipated SF Ball at the Grand Harbour hotel Southampton, some changes have been made to the lineup. We were starting to get slightly optimistic that Jonathan Frakes might actually attend but it wasn’t to be. Instead the hilarious and gorgeous Dominic Keating and Conner Trinneer from Star Trek Enterprise have stepped up to add to this Trektastic lineup that also includes Casey Biggs and Vaughn Armstrong.

Casey Biggs has spoken to organisers at SFB towers and said;

“We are very excited to be able to attend and perform for everyone at the Ball this year. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is still so strong in the minds of Star Trek fans that it’s always rewarding to be able to meet and chat about the magical world of Star Trek.”

Casey Biggs will be attending the entire weekend as well as performing as part of a special Star Trek cabaret.

 

Not only does the SF Ball offer the usual talks, autographs and photoshoots but there are workshops, an exhibition hall, models, merchandise, costumes and not to mention the wonderful Star Trek sets by the USS Riker’s Beard. All of this is done in the pursuit to raise as much funding towards the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Tickets are selling fast but can be booked online. For more info, tickets and itinerary check out the SFB Events website.

See you there!

 

SF Ball 21

On Saturday we packed up ready for the SF Ball in it’s new home at the Grand Harbour Hotel, Southampton. Carole had to work so I took Sarah, our Trekkie In Training, along.

Because of new baby, we couldn’t stay along as we wanted (like, all weekend!) so this review isn’t as thorough as we’d like however we wanted to make an effort and see what we could of the Ball after hearing so much praise.

We have been to all sorts of conventions, some are massive signing events, some are like a small gathering of friends, others are like drunken nights at Quarks. From what we saw of the SF Ball, it is a mixture of everything.
