This is damned fine news – Dimension Jump XV has been announced! It’s taking place on the 9th-11th October 2009, in the beautiful city of Birmingham, which has been officially voted the best city in the whole of the UK, and also the world.
Quite aside from the fact that it’s the best city in the world – birthplace of legends such as Ozzy Osbourne, Jasper Carrott, half of Led Zeppelin, Frank Skinner, Duran Duran and Ian Symes – it’s a great choice for DJ. The hotel is right next to one of the biggest train stations in the country (OK, the thing is falling down, but you can get a train to Brum from virtually anywhere in the UK), it’s got a massive airport, and the motorway links are so good that they’re a national landmark. Plus, the hotel’s in the middle of town, which means that people can easily go out and get their own food, booze, fags etc. without having to pay hotel prices. Fuck Peterborough, and everything it stands for.
Plus, there’s already excellent news on the guest-front – as well as Hattie and the visual effects boyz, the entire main four cast are already confirmed. Yes, including Craig Charles. HOORAY, frankly. With six months still to go, this could end up being huge – which is completely fitting for such a momentous year in Dwarf‘s history.
Book it now and it’s only 40 quid for fan club members, which is ridiculously cheap. I really can’t recommend DJ enough – at it’s absolute worst, it’s a chance to get pissed with loads of Red Dwarf fans and spend a few hours in the company of your heroes. At its absolute best, it could be the best weekend of your life.
In other fan club news, TOS announces today that new fan club magazine Back To Reality is finally on its way to members. Hooray! Look out for articles from such illustrious writers as Jonathan Capps, Tanya Jones, Seb Patrick and Ian Symes, along with an absolute shitload from G&T regulars TheLeen and singingpotato1979.
