Stephen Gallagher @ Vworp 4!

We’re just a few days away from the Vworp 4 event at Manchester pub The Lass O’Gowrie, where it has been announced that 80s writer Stephen Gallagher will be appearing on July 3rd alongside a whole host of classic Doctor Who personnel and some faces from DWM!

After lots of cajoling and persuading, Salford’s own Who scripter of 80′s faves Warriors Gate and Terminus Stephen Gallagher has agreed to join us for the day. We’re very chuffed, as Steve hasn’t done a con for donkeys years and has a lot to chat about!

As previously announced, Steve joins Katy Manning, Donald Tosh, Bob Baker, Paul Tams, Dez Skinn, Adrian Salmon, Andrew Cartmel, Ben Aaronovich, Peter Ware and the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre!

If you haven’t attended a Vworp event before, the setup is very simple: it takes place in an old-fashioned pub, kitted out with a big screen and with the guests talking about their favourite 6 things from Doctor Who. It’s a great concept, simply executed, and over the yars names such as Graeme Harper and Terrance Dicks have lent their support to the event. With people such as Katy Manning (former companion Jo Grant) and K9 creator Bob Baker on hand, not to mention 1960s script editor Donald Tosh, this is a superb lineup that is definitely worth spending 12 hours in a pub for!

Tickets cost £19.95 and are available from www.wegottickets.com/event/116912.

Food and drink is available, with a top quality, award winning menu to choose from. If you’re really lucky you might even get to chat with some of the Kasterborous team over a pint of mild!

More info on LassFest, which has tons of goodies in as part of the Pubcon is available at www.lassfest.co.uk
