SHADO Con

Saturday 3rd June, 10am – 5pm

QUAD, in association with the organisers of SHADO CON, are pleased to announce the first convention for fans of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s cult TV programme UFO for nearly 30 years. First screened in 1970, this series only ran for 26 episodes but it remains one of the foremost sci-fi dramas of the era. It boasted cutting-edge special effects including innovative model vehicles of the future, futuristic costumes and eye-catching set designs, as well as first-rate actors including Ed Bishop, George Sewell, Gabrielle Drake, and Michael Billington.

UFO's realistic and ground-breaking episodes explored darker and more adult themes than the Andersons' earlier shows like Thunderbirds, including the death of a child, drug use and the kidnapping of humans for their organs.

Join us for a celebration for fans of Gerry & Sylvia Anderson’s UFO featuring Special Guests, Panel Discussions, Autographs and Photos, Merchandise, Screenings and Model & Art Displays.

Tickets - £45, £35 Concessions
