There’s a new dawn ahead for Doctor Who events in the UK as Manchester based ‘Vworp’ launches their first event with a bang at The Printworks on 9th September 2018 – an independent event offering an impressive looking line up of signings, panels and activities.
Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Paul McGann may be the headline names for this New event, but there are a number of actresses on the guest list who played companions too. Behind the scenes creators such as writer Bob Baker and producer Phillip Hinchcliffe are also in the line up.
On offer will be photo opportunities with full size police boxes, Daleks, Cybermen and a host of other monsters lurking throughout the venue and with a number of dealers for you to track down that elusive action figure or Sonic spatula (it’s a thing – trust us) you’ll have to hope that your bag is bigger on the inside.
There will be a full slate of panels and talks across three stages and signings with actors who played Doctors, Companions and Monsters.
In addition to the Who fun a lot of the venues within the Printworks will be offering deals across the weekend on food and drink so you won’t even have to leave the venue.
