We all know that all good things come in pairs; fish fingers and Custard, bow ties and Zfez’s, Amy and Rory… the list goes on. Well now we can add the official 50th Celebration at London’s ExCel to that list as it gets a cool after party to pair up with in the form of ‘The Doc Lands @ 50 Party’.
Organised by Jeremy and Paula Bentham together with Tony Clark, who have held a series of highly popular event parties in London since the show’s return in 2005. The celebratory party will be held at a currently top secret venue in Docklands on Saturday 23rd November, starting around 7pm after the BBC’s Doctor Who 50th Celebration at ExCel has ended that day. Admission is free and open to anyone regardless of whether or not you have attended the ExCel event, but tickets are strictly limited to 1,500 and is for over 18’s only.
Organisers have also declared that should their party coincide with the broadcast of the actual anniversary episode, or indeed any other Doctor Who programming, it will be shown on the venue’s large-screen TV.
To apply for tickets, e-mail Jeremy at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 9th September, using the subject line ‘Doc Lands ticket applications‘ and stating your name as well as how many people will be in your group. People are urged to think about considerations such as transportation home after the party as its likely to be a late one before applying for tickets.
The lucky 1,500 who manage to snag tickets will be contacted in early November, when they will be given the exact location details for the party and will be sent their tickets too.
