This weekend I will be attending the SF Ball down in Bournemouth, run by SFB Events. I’ll be with several of the guys from the USS Victoria sci-fi fan club, so look out for us and please do come up and say hello!

After the rush of Christmas in December and the excitement of New Year in January, February may seem a little dull. SFB Events has the perfect solution; The Ball! This is a relaxed and friendly 3-day social experience, held in Bournemouth that brings you the best stars from Sci-Fi and Cult TV.
The event run solely by volunteers is focused on raising money for charity. Over the past 17 years SFB Events have raised thousands of pounds for a variety of good causes including The Macmillan Trust at Christchurch Hospital and the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Throughout the weekend you can attend guest appearances on stage, with an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about film, TV or life in general. There are daily autograph sessions, and the celebrity guests are also invited to come along and enjoy the parties – and they often do!
In 2009 SFB Events is excited to welcome Emmy award winning actress Mary McDonnell (Independence Day, Battle Star Galactica the new series), Robert Picardo (Inner Space, Stargate Atlantis and Voyager), Peter Jurasik (Babylon 5, Tron), and Stephen Furst (Babylon 5 and director of Curmugeon Films).
But, The Ball is not just about seeing celebrities on the stage; SFB Events delivers an event that is packed with activities, entertainments and social opportunities that start on Friday with a superb champagne cocktail party and does not stop until the Karaoke disco on Sunday night. The highlight of the weekend is the fabulous 3-course black-tie or fancy dress banquet with late-night celebrity cabaret and dancing until 2am.
Party goers are a mixture of regulars and first timers and The Ball is a great venue for everyone – singles to families and of all ages. Special attention is given to new attendees with a special meet and greet gathering on Friday. Customer satisfaction is a top priority for all the SFB Events team who want everybody to enjoy the event as much as they do.
