Redemption '99 was such a success, the committee has decided to do it again - in 2001. Nearly 300 people attended Redemption '99, raising £2000, which was split equally between our two charities - the National Asthma Campaign and the Woodland Trust. The same two charities will receive all the profits from the next event as well.
Redemption '01 will be held from 23 to 25 February 2001, again at the Ashford International Hotel in Kent. The convention will repeat the formula of concentrating on fan run events, such as games, workshops, panels and debates, that proved so popular last time.
Blake's 7 and Babylon 5 will again be the themes, boosted hopefully by the news that a Blake's 7 TV movie is in the making. Gareth Thomas has agreed to be a guest. He will be joined by Andy Lane, author of the Babylon Files, the unofficial guides to the series, and the backs of some 350 Babylon 5 trading cards. He has also written some Dr Who books.
Also on the guest list are Servalan impersonator David Walsh and Michael Sheard, who played section leader Clegg in Blake's 7 and brightens up every convention he attends. All guest appearances are subject to work commitments.
The committee is made up of Steve Rogerson, Eddie Cochrane, Chris O'Shea, Judith Proctor, Lesley Voronov, Anne Wells and Nik Whitehead.
