Gallifrey One: 28 Years Later, our 2017 convention, was a great success all around… click on some of the images on this page for just a small sampling! We welcomed 3,868 attendees, staff and guests, with no major last minute guest cancellations. Our 2017 Bob May Memorial Charity Auction raised a record $18,400 for the Denville Hall Trust on behalf of Lalla Ward (we’ve since made our donation and the charity has offered their profound thanks to everyone who contributed!)
This year we’re happy to say we’ve faced nearly universal positive response from our attendees without incident. As we had almost no changes between the announced program and the final schedule, the program ran almost completely on time (with the exception of a delay in the video room schedule on Friday.) Though there were a number of requests to sell tickets at the last minute, we felt almost no actual hit on attendance at the convention. (We hope you agree!)
