I really don't believe that we are coming up to our ninth annual Weird Weekend. It seems only yesterday that we were promoting (in an incredibly half arsed way) the first event. However, we know what we are doing a heck of a lot more now than we did back then, and the 2008 event looks like it is going to be a stonker.
This year's speakers include:
PAUL VELLA: Bigfoot for kids
RONAN COGHLAN: Theology of extraterrestraials
GEOFF WARD: Spirals in nature
JONATHAN DOWNES: TBC
RICHARD FREEMAN et al: Guyana 2007 Expedition report and results
DR KARL SHUKER TBC
JONATHAN MCGOWAN TBC
LEE WALKER: New Ferry after Dark
MIKE HALLOWELL: Invisikids
GAIL NINA ANDERSON: TBC
CHRIS MOISER: Tropiquaria Zoo - tales from a zookeeper
DARREN W RITSON & MIKE HALLOWELL: Tyneside Poltergeist case TBC
MICHAEL WOODLEY: classifying sea serpents
Dr MIKE DASH: Lake Monsters title TBC
TIM MATTHEWS: TBC
NICK REDFERN: Planet of the Ape-Men
PAUL ROSE: A year of monsters
OLL LEWIS: tbc
and more to be confirmed soon.
To give you a taster, here are some videos from last year's event, edited by my beloved nephew David. I really don't know what I would do without him...
