Sci-fi takes over Forum Shopping Centre on 2nd May

The Forum Shopping Centre in Sittingbourne will be hosting a Sci – Fi event on Saturday 2nd May from 10am – 5pm.

The event will include special meet and greet sessions and signing opportunities with actors such as Simon Fisher-Becker who played Dorium Maldovar and Matthew Dale who played Big John from Doctor Who as well as Chris Bunn, the original Stormtrooper from Star Wars.

There will also be treasure hunts, a face painter, a Fancy Dress Competition, Quizzes and activities by Luniac Designs, exhibitions featuring a life size TARDIS and a Dalek – arch nemesis of Dr Who and a selection of stalls offering sci-fi themed products.

All proceeds raised from the event will go towards The Alzheimer’s Society, the centre’s new charity of the year.

Rachel Jenman, Centre Manager of The Forum Shopping Centre, commented:

“We are really looking forward to our Sci-fi day. The event will offer shoppers a jam packed programme of fun activities with something to treat everyone who has an interest in science fiction, from a TARDIS and Storm Troopers to Daleks and lightsabers. I hope everyone who attends has a fantastic time.”

About Donna Scott

Chair of the BSFA since June 2013. Prior to this I was Awards Administrator, taking over that role from Claire Briarley in 2008. I am officially Donna Bond since getting married in May 2013, but continue to write and perform under my previous name, Donna Scott. My short fiction stories have been published in various anthologies and magazines, and I was winner of the inaugural Short Cuts at the MAC in 2005. As a comedian, I have performed all over the UK. Comedy has also given me the opportunity to perform alongside big names like Sarah Millican and Jasper Carrott! As a poet, I've also performed all over the place, including lots of science fiction conventions, and sometimes my poetry and comedy get kind of mixed up. I was the first official Bard of Northampton, it's true. I've got a tankard that says so... I love being a part of the BSFA - I've always been a devourer of books and being part of this association has enabled me to explore some great science fiction classics - and classics of the future, that I might otherwise have not heard about. I've met some lovely people with an enthusiasm for the genre, made firm friends, and got to meet some of my favourite writers, too! As a writer, I also have to say that FOCUS is the best magazine for writers I've ever come across - and as a member I get that for free. Who wouldn't want to be a part of this?
