Andy, Renee, and Amanda talk about the Doctor Who convention in LA from February 15-17 in the Marriott Los Angeles Airport Hotel! Will they see you there?
Gallifrey One is the world’s largest and longest-running annual Doctor Who fan convention.
A fully non-profit event founded in 1989 by active fans in local Los Angeles science fiction fandom, Gallifrey One Conventions has run events annually since 1990 (all but the first two occurring in February), and has over time become one of the world’s most popular fan-run themed events devoted to the Doctor Who classic and new television series, and its spinoffs, including Torchwood, Class and The Sarah Jane Adventures.
While very much a modern celebrity-driven convention, Gallifrey One stays extremely close to its roots in “old school” fandom: one admission cost for nearly everything at the event, with no preferred seating or tier packages, where pros and fans alike mix throughout the day. Our convention still boasts a classic-style art show, a hospitality suite (or “con suite”) with free snacks for convention members, a supervised children’s program room, hallway fan tables available for free to clubs and conventions, and specialized costuming events, as well as a dealers room, video program and special themed events. Plus, unlike other celebrity shows, our event goes well into the evening on Friday and Saturday nights with extensive evening programming, dances and karaoke (sometimes going until the very early hours of the morning!), and a fully judged Saturday night costume competition and fashion show (the Masquerade of Mandragora).
