‘Thunderbirds Cars Are Go!’ for launch of Andercon
Anderson Entertainment today confirms the appearance of FAB1 and a host of other cars for the launch of Andercon, its first annual convention for fans of Gerry Anderson, MBE and his award-winning cult hits such as Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, Stingray, UFO and Space: 1999. The convention will take place 19-20 April 2014 at the Park Inn Heathrow hotel with over 40 guests from the cast and crew of every single Gerry Anderson production attending.
In addition to FAB1 there should be a number of famous vehicles from other Anderson productions, including the Model T Ford ‘Gabriel’ from the Secret Service, a replica of Straker’s car from UFO (subject to completion on time), a surviving moon buggy from Space: 1999 and Rolls Royce’s specially built ‘FAB1Million’ Ghost (awaiting confirmation) (see photos attached below).
Andercon looks set to attract fans of Gerry Anderson’s productions from all over the world, as Jamie Anderson, Gerry’s son and Managing Director of Anderson Entertainment explains, “It’s a great chance to meet the cast and crew in person and to see the original props up close. We’ll have exclusive screenings, panels and workshops, Q&A sessions and quizzes and costume competitions with super prizes. We’ll also be showing never-before-seen set reconstructions showing how the Anderson magic happened. Unfortunately, the venue has had to limit the number of people allowed, so I advise anyone who’s interested to secure tickets now while they’re still available.”
Tickets cost £45 per day and are available from www.andercon.co.uk
