Dimension Jump is two weeks away, motherfuckers. And on this very special occasion, we’re handing over to TORDFC‘s Jo Sharples to give you all the latest news. Read on…
Ohai G&T people! This week TORDFC sent out an email update for all those attending DJ who are already registered, but for those of you who aren’t yet registered or are planning on paying on the door (Danny Stephenson, I’m looking at you.) here is all the info you’ll need:
Tickets this year are limited, however we will have a handful available for purchase on the door, so don’t panic if you’ve not got round to registering yet. We’re now also offering Saturday passes, these will only be available to purchase on the door at a cost of £30 each (Under 5s go free). Saturday passes allow you entry to DJXVI from the start of the day (about 10:00) until the end of the Saturday night disco.
At this year’s Dimension Jump, we’re trying out a couple of new events for a small charge, which we wanted to let attendees know about in advance:
COFFEE LOUNGE – £20 per person
Ever wished you could have a more intimate chat with your Red Dwarf heroes? Well now is your chance! The Red Dwarf posse have agreed to allow a limited number of you into the Green Room for a coffee (or tea if you prefer!) and a chat. There will be two 30 minute Coffee Lounge sessions, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. All of the guests who are there on the day of the session will be involved. 20 places will be available for each session.
If you’re interested in taking part, your name will be taken at the registration desk. For those late arrivals, don’t worry – you needn’t miss out. We’ll be taking the names of all those interested until 10am on Saturday and if there are more than 20 per session we’ll draw names. You’ll only pay if your name is drawn, but we want to make sure that all attendees have an equal chance of participating.
PHOTOSHOOT – £10 per person/group
The price includes 1x A4 glossy photo print, extra copies are available at a cost of £5 per copy.
There will be a total of two photoshoot sessions with the available guests; one on Saturday and one on Sunday at 2pm, right before the Autograph sessions. Each session will have 60 slots available – we would love to be able to accommodate everyone attending, but unfortunately we just don’t have the time! If you’re with a group of friends, why not consider having a group photo? With reprints at only £5 each you could end up saving! We’ll be taking bookings for the photoshoots on Saturday from 9:00-10:30. So be there early and don’t miss out!
If you’re on Twitter and attending DJXVI, you’ll be interested to know that we’ve now got a dedicated Twitter account for Dimension Jump: @TORDFC_DJ. Rather than flood @TORDFC followers with live updates, schedule changes and such we decided it’d be much better to let people opt in and then we can tweet freely! Oh, and if you’re discussing Dimension Jump XVI then don’t forget to use the #DJXVI hashtag.
On a personal note, we’ve been working really hard in the run up to DJXVI to try and make sure that silly mistakes and oversights which have happened in the past don’t happen this year. I really hope that everyone who attends has a fabulous weekend and enjoys themselves, that’s all we can ask really! See you at the bar, mine’s a rum and coke. ;o)
