If you arrange, attend or just know about any gathering that I can include in a round up like this please let me know. You can leave a message in the ‘Comments’ below or find the e-mail address on the FB Page, you can even click ‘Like’ there and keep up to date with what I am writing about.
These gatherings are usually informal but May brings Lawgiver MkII. I’m involved in Lawgiver so it is a little self publicity in a way. Lawgiver is the only Judge Dredd convention in the world (to our knowledge) and features a number of high profile Guests. I run some of the Panels, so if you come along please do introduce yourself.
Organiser – Mick Ramsey
Saturday April 18th at 18:30 onwards

Birmingham from .

One year earlier a few folk met up for a beer in a pub. Mick Ramsey arranged a screening of Judge Minty and Dredd (2012) and what was planned originally as a one off has grown to a regular meet up with folk travelling quite a distance to attend.
This is an all inclusive group of over 18s that like hard partying. Judge on!
