Heroes & Villains Weekend

When I was at the London Film and Comic Convention last weekend, I met Waddy. Waddy is a science fiction fan, family man, and convention goer. Big sci-fi conventions are expensive enough by themselves, but add hotel accommodation, and kids into the mix, and you end up with a pretty hefty bill.

Waddy wanted to provide a cheaper alternative, so he came up with Wadfest, an affordable scifi/fantasy camping festival.

At first I was sceptical about the word 'affordable', because camping festivals can cost well in excess of a hundred pounds. And that's just for one person. Then I took a look at the leaflet he handed me. 25 for an adult camping ticket. All accompanied children under 16 go free.

Really? Surely there had to be some kind of catch. Nope. Not only does the ticket include entry and camping, but all the events as well. These include things such as murder mysteries, masquerades, disco, penguin bowling, and building and racing your own go karts.

This year the festival will take place at King's Bush Farm in Cambridgeshire between the 15th - 17th August. If you don't want to go camping, you can also by a visitor ticket for 12.50. The theme is Heroes and Villains, with a fancy dress competition for the best costume.
