    Hi Everyone,

    Happy New Year to you.

    Just a quick note to let you all know that we are very excited, and privileged, to announce that HARRY HARRIS will be displaying some of his 'ALIENS' prop and costume archive at our up and coming charity event, STAR WARS DAY X.

    ItÂ’s on Sunday March 12th 2006 in the Southwest corner of United Kingdom.

    It is a fantastic chance to see these great and rarely displayed items up close and personal.

    And, as long as sufficient bribes are paid, you can ask their expert owner any burning questions you may have been harbouring. :p

    In addition, we are very lucky that our show has been chosen by a very prolific collector to debut his amazing collection of costumes and props from the fantastic TV show, FIREFLY.

    We're talking main character costumes, weapons and props.

    How cool is that. B)

    Mat Irvine (BBC Visual Effects artist) has also very kindly agreed to attend our event.

    http://www.smallspace.demon.co.uk/Biog/biog.htm

    He will be bringing a selection of props and models from Dr Who and Blake's 7 to display and will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about his collection or his work.

    This Planet Earth http://www.thisplanetearth.co.uk/ will be debuting their new series Dalek, moulded directly from the BBC prop, I've been told that it is stunning.


    More details of what will be on display will be announced shortly, they really are fantastic items, some have never been on public display, I personally canÂ’t wait to see them.


    The event is run by The Exewing Fundraisers, a group of fans/friends who run Star Wars/Sci-Fi events for various charities, this years event is in aid of The British Heart Foundation.

    Last year we raised £8,500 (Just under $15,000) for Cancer Research UK.

    It is a smallish, primarily STAR WARS orientated event, but there's lots going on;

    Guest talks & signings, competitions, dealers, displays, fancy dress, vintage arcade machines, art displays, quiz's, raffles, and lots more.

    And best of all, it's all for a good cause. :)


    Please see our website for more information:

    Thanks so much for reading,

    Hopefully some of you can make it and I'll see you there?

    Cheers,

    Andy.

    IÂ’d highly recommend this event. ItÂ’s a really nice guild level convention that really does have a great atmosphere unlike those massive commercial events.

    A charitable event run by some of the nicest people you could hope to meet.

    With a fantastic display from Harry Harris and screen used Firefly props and costumes IÂ’m sure there will be plenty to enthral everyone.

    Hi All,

    A quick update, and hopefully it will give you an idea of what to expect.

    Star Wars Day 10, in addition to itÂ’s usual program of events, will also be hosting two amazing 'screen used' prop and costume displays from the world of Film and Television.

    More specifically from, 'FIREFLY' the amazing TV show from Joss Whedon and the fantastic 'ALIENS', James Camerons superb sequel to Alien.

    Jayne Cobb may not be able to make it to the event, but his very favourite gun can.

    Malcolm Reynolds may have worn it and given it purpose, but Firefly fandom took it for their own name.

    Yes folks thatÂ’s right, standing proud amongst the various Firefly Props and Costumes being displayed, will be the screen used VERA (Jayne Cobb's awesome machine gun), and Malcolm Reynolds screen used hero BROWNCOAT, as worn by Nathan Fillion.

    The very MARINE ARMOUR as worn by Bill Paxton (Private Hudson) and the JUMPSUIT that Lance Henriksen (Bishop, the Android) wore in the smash hit movie Aliens, now celebrating itÂ’s 20th anniversary, will be taking pride of place alongside many other props and costumes on display from the fantastic Harry Harris Alien Collection and Archive

    There will be many more costumes and props from these two fantastic shows, with experts on hand to answer any queries. If you can make it donÂ’t miss this amazing opportunity to see these rarely seen collections.

    Photos will be allowed but some flash photography will be restricted due to the nature of the props.

    Please visit our website:

    The Exewing Fundraisers

    for more details of the event.

    Hey, there we go guy's, I'm looking forward to it.

    All profits are going to The British Heart Foundation.

    Please tell your friends and hopefully see some of you there.

    Stay Shiny,

    Andy. :D

    I have no idea.

    I'll mention it to the two collection owners.

    Unfortunately I suspect the logistics will make it unlikely, however you never know. :)

    cheers,

    Andy.

    Don't forget that if you can't get a lift you could always look at rail travel.

    If you book a ticket enough in advance you can save quite a bit. I use thetrainline.com

    You could always get the train from Waterloo, couple of hours and your straight there, no need to change.

    You should still have time to get an APEX fare.

    Just a suggestion :)
