SHERLOCK CELEBRATION 2020 [CANCELED]

large2-copy copy

Greetings fellow Sherlock fans…

It looks like things are only getting worse when it comes to planning a fan gathering/event in November. So I’m canceling this November gathering. Hopefully next year we can start planning again. Those that live local to Philadelphia PA, I’ll be planning BBC meetups. I’ve already got a few places in mind near King of Prussia where we can have fan days. For those that live further away, I would like to look into a London group event again, once things are back to normal again that is.

I think in the future I would also like to see BBC fans set up at events, like 221B Con. Maybe even host some panels at future events like we did at London Comic-Con, or maybe a fan party? For most of us, it’s just celebrating a show we love! For those I owe refunds, I will be contacting all of you personally, it just may take me a few days.

I also plan to start selling the goodies I was going to sell at our event. I have a bunch of double-sided movie posters which include: The Imitation Game, The Hobbit, Star Trek Into Darkness, Thor, etc… I have a list ūüôā I’m also selling a bunch of Sherlock Pop Figures. Looking for something, contact me.

Anything I had listed for charity will be saved for future fan gatherings and events.

Again stay safe, and I hope to see all of you again soon. -Rose AKA Blogger

Sherlock Celebration Update…

Greetings, fellow Sherlock fans.

Aside from working full time and starting an online business, explaining my delay in posting. I wanted to give you a Sherlock Celebration Update.

The hotel informed me last week that I’m allowed to have no more than 25 in attendance and that’s including hotel staff. That count may change by November, I’m hoping it will. Right now I’m considering a smaller meetup. Would love to hear your thoughts!

For those that would like a refund, let me know. For those still planning to meet up this November. I’m now considering a group road trip around Philly.

In the future, after things are a tad bit normal, I would love to find a way for local Sherlock fans to meet up for monthly or bi-monthly gatherings.  Something similar to a London trip 20 of us planned a few years back.

On Sherlock Fans USA and I hope to be more active on Instagram too! More importantly, get back to reading some fanfiction!

Sherlock Convention Update

This of course was posted on The Game Is Never Over convention page! CONVENTION UPDATES 3-22-20

First off we’d like to say we hope everyone is well and that you’re staying safe. Although we’ve been slow on updates due to work commitments, we are constantly working on ideas for the event.

We are now planning SWAG BAGS for our pre-registered fans, which will include coupons, Sherlock buttons/pins, a special lanyard, and a special print. For those interested in adding something extra to these swag bags, feel free to contact us at skids1985@comcast.net

A Game Of Murder… We’ll be posting a new convention game shortly, one which requires a sign-up sheet since there’s limited spacing. This game will also offer something extra special for each player, a custom keepsake to take home.

We are also working on a Trivia Contest with lots of prizes, a T-Shirt Contest, and a Tea Party! Again always working on something new!

We’re adding something extra special for our fanfiction contest! Many have asked that we do not share their stories with Hartswood Films, that they would like to keep their stories more private. So instead, we will be offering a signed script. More details soon!

T-Shirt Update!

We may put a permanent link up to purchase T-shirts.

Learn more at The Game Is Never Over! 

SHERLOCK ARTISTS

Convention updates continue as this blogger continues to be busy! Recent announcements include this Artist Announcement! If you’re an ARTIST and interested in being a part of the event, please feel free to contact us!

We’ll be sharing our favorite stories, interviews, and art again soon!!! -Blogger

Since we are a fan convention that’s celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Sherlock we would love to see more art! So we ask that you consider sharing it!

Artistic plans for our Event include:

  • An Artist Panel:¬†Spotlighting the fandom and the art that‚Äôs blossomed from it throughout the years. Fans, of course, will be credited and links will be added!
  • Art Contest:¬†For those attending, we also plan to have an art contest. We may extend that online as well!
  • Art Donations:¬†For those interested in either donating art for our charity auction, or for our trivia contest, please feel free to contact us! Your store and online media links will be posted on the site, along with anything extra you‚Äôd like us to add.
  • Artist & VendorTables:¬†For those interested in selling, we have limited space left. [12 spots] so please contact us if interested, first come basis.¬† Learn more on our¬†Vendor¬†page!

Although this event is geared towards Sherlock, we plan to take things beyond the BBC series. Other named items that will go over well include Supernatural, The Hobbit (LOTR), Doctor Who, Marvel Avengers/Doctor Strange, Good Omens, Star Trek, and Dracula BBC. [Most of these are mentioned because they somehow have connections with the actors of Sherlock’s BBC series, so they would be popular, and of course, there are the SuperWhoLock fans, that enjoy Supernatural, Doctor Who, and Sherlock.

Questions? Feel free to email us at skids1985@comcast.net
