Steven and Paris are headed to the UK for Claudia Christian's UK Convention. Sounds fabulous!
Claudia (the ever wonderful Susan Ivanova from Babylon 5) is organising this convention and she explains why:
“All access all the time” and “No Rules - Just Be Respectful” are our mottos!
After years of attending conventions where fans were mistreated, told not to touch, photograph, film, eat or breathe…. I decided to throw what I call the “anti-convention.” My theory is that if you give people freedom and respect they will in turn give you freedom and respect.
I have invited some terrific speakers and guests (see the Special Guests page). All of the guest’s appearances are contingent upon their work schedule, but so far everyone seems as excited as I am about this convention. I will be adding more guests as they come on board - this is just the beginning!
I have tried to keep the cost low but as you know things need to be paid for so I have provided a flexible schedule for you to choose from. You can attend the dinner and/or the breakfast or neither if you choose. I will be there flitting between the tables and socializing at both meals. I will invite all of the other media guests to attend both meals as well.
I will also be auctioning off a private lunch with me for one or two people on Sunday and twelve brave people will have the opportunity to meet me at a pub in Notting Hill then go back to my flat and enjoy a yummy Tex Mex meal with me - cooked by me. This will be on Friday night and is a on a first come first serve basis, so sign up quickly!
I will be celebrating my birthday as well over the weekend and you are all invited to my birthday party on Sunday evening at the hotel lobby bar.
Happy Birthday Claudia!The actors, actresses, writers, show-runners, producers, etc. attending as guests will be signing, taking professional photos, casual photos, milling about and having fun all weekend so I hope that you will have the opportunity to meet the people you admire, have a relaxed and enjoyable weekend among friends, and even learn a thing or two!
I appreciate all of the love and support my fans have given me over the years and I feel this is a wonderful way to show you my appreciation by giving you a convention where YOU are the star!
All of my love and I hope to see you this summer!
