Edge-Lit, Derby, 14th July - final event details!
« on: July 09, 2012, 08:32:56 AM »
Hi Guys,

With less than a week to go until Edge-Lit in Derby, I thought this'd be a good chance to pass on some of the final details for the event! It all happens on the 14th July, running from 10am-Midnight at Derby's superb QUAD venue, and we'll be offering a superb mix of panels, workshops, readings, films and much more in the genres of science-fiction, fantasy and horror. And at just £20/£25 for a ticket for the day, it's incredible value for a great choice of sessions on the day!

You can see the final schedule for the day below, which will give you an idea of exactly how much is going on throughout, and you can check out our blog for all the very latest news, http://edgelitderby.blogspot.co.uk/. Recent updates give all the latest on our dealers' room, raffle, quiz and much more!

If you'd like to book yourself in for the day, feel free to drop by our webpage at QUAD at http://www.derbyquad.co.uk/special-event/edge-lit-day-ticket or give their Box Office a call on 01332 290606. Any questions at all, feel free to drop me a line at [email protected]!

Thanks a lot, and hope to see you there!

Alex
