Everyone who attended last year's convention agreed it was one of the best yet. We had Arthur Smith, The Members and Jilted John as special guests and they fully got into the spirit of the weekend. The most heard sentence at the end was "same time next year". So, we are delighted to announce that we shall, once again, be returning to Southend for more fun and mayhem. How can we top last year? Well, 2017 promises to be a very exciting year with the new album due for official release in the Spring and of course we shall be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Hit. Who knows, maybe we'll also get to celebrate a new hit as well...

If you have ever been on one of the Dunkerque trips or to a previous convention, you know what a great weekend is had by all. If you have never been to either, where have you been? It truly is an incredible weekend where you will make new friends, get re-aquainted with old friends and most of all, you'll have a weekend of entertainment and laughter.

As with the last year, we plan to hold an additional special event on the Friday evening. The event will include a meal followed by an evening's entertainment with Stephen Frost's Improv All-Stars and Murray Torkildsen. The Saturday night big band show will feature very special guests Department S and Sound of the Sirens at a great rock venue with all the usual fun. Finally, on Sunday, we shall have our traditional Sunday brunch session - which has always been the highlight of the convention for many and a very special guest appearance from Wild Willy Barrett.

In order to get an idea of numbers, we would be grateful if you could register using the form opposite.
