This weekend (November 23rd & 24th) sees the McM Comic Con and Memorabilia show take place at the NEC in Birmingham. We’ll be there on the Saturday, checking out what’s happening at one of the UK’s biggest conventions. If you haven’t grabbed a ticket yet, what are you waiting for? Ok, ok, so some of you may still be undecided, so let me tempt you with a rundown of just some highlights of the guests attending the event this weekend…
Red Dwarf Reunion – Chris Barrie (Arnold Rimmer); Hattie Hayridge (Holly); Danny John-Jules (The Cat) and Robert Llewellyn (Kryten) from much-loved British sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf. Quadrophenia Reunion – Stars Phil Daniels (Jimmy); Toyah Willcox (Monkey) and Daniel Peacock (Danny) celebrate the ultimate mod movie, based on The Who’s 1973 rock opera.

If you’re in striking distance of Colchester, Essex next Saturday, 7th September, then you really need to get yourself into Britain’s oldest recorded town to witness the 2013 Invasion!
The result of hard work by Kerrie Williams and Simon Leonard, Invasion is a charitable event that supports St Helena Hospice and the Colchester Hospitals Charity, and will feature an impressively large gathering of television and film characters. From a squadron of Colonial Marines (from Aliens) to the Ghostbusters, from slasher king Jason Vorhees to dragon queen Daenerys Stormborn from Game of Thrones, there will be plenty of photo opportunities for fans, providing they can run the gauntlet of Imperial Stormtroopers and other denizens of the Star Wars universe.

This week's collection of crowdfunding projects includes a rocketman comedy, and a worthy cause with a Star Wars theme...
As well as being a launch pad for original ideas from untested talent, the crowdfunding phenomenon also has an additional, perhaps even more worthwhile service to offer: providing a source of funds for worthy causes.
Our policy of focusing on specifically geek-friendly projects means we can't often cover these in our weekly posts, but one Kickstarter campaign we stumbled on this week managed to be both nerdy and supremely worthwhile: a Star Wars day for the visually impaired and disabled. It's a great idea that we hope does well - and inspires similar events elsewhere in the UK and abroad.
