I'm in the final stages of confirming a venue for the London screening on Saturday 27 September (3-7pm) - if you're in or around the London area and would like to help, please let me know...!! :)

Will help as much as I can from up here in Leicester. Most likely if we have any stuff left over I'll pass them on to you to use/sell etc.

London is listed on the home page as September 20th. That's tomorrow.

You guys going ahead with your screening? We'd love to hear about it.

An update on the CSTS London website says they raised £600.40 / $1,103.81 but I've not heard anything else so far. That's brilliant. Well done, guys :)

Well, the London screening was a great success! We sold 70 tickets and have so far raised £600.40 / $1,103.81, but donations are still being taken so this amount might yet go up. We sold 597 raffle tickets and were fortunate enough to have both Nick from 'The Signal' and Wendy from 'Sending a Wave' with us to pull the tickets out of the hat; we had 3 raffle baskets and a few last minute donations from Wendy, which were very well received! :-D

Roxy Bar & Screen turned out to be a lovely little location for this screening, mainly because it allowed everyone to enjoy the movie, and events, and have a few drinks at the same time (the only draw back I could see was that they only served a mezes menu!). The mood was just great and everyone was eager to participate, cheering and clapping in all the right places (thanks for your support guys!) and there is nothing better than watching a movie like Serenity among people who love, and appreciate, it as much as you do - it just makes the whole experience so much more!!

We had people attend from all over England, even from as far afield as Scotland (thanks so much for coming!), and quite a few first time viewers of the BDM; I'm glad to have been able to share this experience with all of them. I was also pleased to see that quite a few people came in costume, and I'd especially like to thank Claire, Paul and Carly who took part in the costume contest; it all served to make the day more enjoyable; and the costumes were brilliant (if anyone has any photos, I'd really like to take a look - with all the excitement, I hardly took any!)

We were also very lucky to have Nick give us an impromptu performance on his guitar: I believe he covered 'Big Damn Trilogy', 'The Ballad of Joss', and 'Mal's Song', but as I was being interviewed at the time, it's a little hard for me to be sure; the whole thing was videoed though and if I can find where it's uploaded I'll post the link on my website (thanks very much Nick!). We rounded the day off with a trivia quiz, which was also a good laugh - well done Team 1!! :-) And that about sums up CSTS London 2008; I'll post the few photos I do have shortly, but would love to see what others have taken!!

I'm just looking forward to next year's event now...:wink:

Great job guys! Sounds like a great event and a lot of fun. The venue sounds awesome - great idea to have a bar/screening!

Congratulations!!

And well done to all the UK Browncoats for pulling off 3 successful events in a short period of time!!!!

And I found another site that mentioned the event:
