Next Spring’s Sci Fi Weekender 5 March 28th / 29th  has announced that none other than legendary Scottish actor Graham McTavish aka The Hobbits Dwalin & Red Dwarfs Warden Ackerman will be joining the list of Star Guests attending next year’s Fifth edition of the Sci Fi weekender.

The event takes place at Hafan y Môr Holiday Park, Pwllheli, North Wales next March 28th /29th 2014.

McTavish is best known for the above two roles but he also appeared as Desmond’s drill sergeant in the Fourth season of Lost, as well as appearances in the 1998 film Merlin and the recent horror film The Wicker Tree.

The Sci Fi Weekender is also pleased to announce that 2000 AD Creator Pat Mills who also played a major part in the development of Judge Dredd will also be in attendance.

Mills who, along with John Wagner, revitalised British boys comics in the 1970s, and has remained a leading light in British comics ever since. He has been called ‘The godfather of British comics’.

It was Mills work as a creator at 2000 AD including his work on Ro-Busters, a series about a robot disaster squad, alongside his other creations ABC Warriors & Nemesis the Warlock with artist Kevin O Neil that really engaged the nation.

As well as his work as a creator of ‘Sláine’, a barbarian fantasy based on Celtic mythology and neo-paganism, which he co-created with his then wife Angela Kincaid, Mills has since created numerous more successful strips including American comics Marshall Law and successful French comic ‘Sha’.

Aside from the above Mills has also written two Doctor Who audio plays, ‘Dead London’ (2008) and ‘The Scapegoat’ (2009) for Big Finish Productions, featuring the Eighth Doctor.

Also joining Mills at the Sci Fi Weekender is fellow writer Alan Mitchell who began writing in partnership with Mills and who met Mills while working as a Shop Manager at Acme Comics. Mills was looking for a Black writer to help him create a nightmare urban world based in the UK. Mitchell then proceeded to work with Mills until 2004 co-writing the story ‘Toxic’ on the Coffin publication.

Mitchell has since worked on numerous titles including ‘Crisis’, the revolutionary political comic from Fleetway on their controversial story ‘Third World War’ with artists such as  Duncan Fegredo, John Kicklentons and Glenn Fabry.

Mitchell has just completed the first episode of ‘RaptorZ’ a new internet comic with Glenn Fabry as artist for Buzz Comic that appeared in the Summer 2011.  He is also working with the artist Kane: 1327 on ‘Fierce’, a horror anthology due for completion winter 2013.

The above will join an exemplary line-up that already includes  Rene Auberjonois aka Odo on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,   Ethan Phillips aka Star Trek: Voyager's Neelix, Stephen Greif (Travis – Blake's 7) and

Simon Fisher-Becker The Fat Friar in the Harry Potter film Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, and Dorium Maldovar in series 5 and 6 of Doctor Who.

Plus Zombie Science (workshop), music from Darth Elvis & The Imperials and everyone’s favourite Sci Fi best-selling author and host Robert Rankin and  co-host and wife Rachel who will oversee the Q&As.

The Sci- Fi Weekender team are keener than ever to make next spring’s event even better than before and want to ensure this just signals the countdown and the first of a number of exciting and imminent announcements as more Intergalactic entertainment is added over the upcoming weeks.

The Sci Fi Weekender takes place on Friday March 28th March through to Sunday 30th March at its new upgraded home of

Hafan y Môr Holiday Park,

Time to dump the Winter Blues and head for the Sun as Ibiza’s 4th cycle of Rock n Roll holidays comes to visibility and gets ready for the HRH onslaught to the white isle.

 

 

 

Ibiza may be famed for dance music, but when the Harleys start rolling and the Blackstar wall of sound reaches ear bleeding status, Ibiza knows that the imminent arrival

 

of the big hair, denim n leather brigade is on the cards once again. With only 100 days to go, its time to start planning a true Rock n Roll holiday with some of the best people on the planet. May, will be our month and we cant wait to share another weeks worth, of beer, bands, booze, bikers n burning sunshine with you all.

 

 

 

There are a lot of new faces this year and a lot more on the wish list, expect all the local fun and camaraderie, the bikers, our European friends and all the local Spanish crowd that have turned up over the last 3 years. It is what it is, pure rock n roll in the sun.

 

 

 

We have 20 odd bands this year, plus a very special fancy dress ball. Krusher will be the man on the decks ( while he’s still standing) and Bronco will do what he does best, with the snakes n surprises ( wasn’t he in charge of security ?)

 

 

 

So, here they are…First of all we are delighted that The Quireboys have decided to launch their new album worldwide in front of the press and you lot in the same special party, the first since 2008 and from what I hear you will be surprised at the new sound and the quality material that’s being laid down as we speak.

 

 

 

We also welcome back Wolf and Pig Iron who did HRHRT1 but lets hope the Swedes can keep their clothes on this year.

 

 

 

The spectrum of music covers, Classic, to AOR, to Metal, to even a bit of southern blues, its all there but 10/10 to Chemicals of Democracy for making it all the way from Phoenix, Arizona, but, hey who am I..there are plenty of links for you too browse, so do your homework and get ready for another bout in Ibiza
