Jersey Sci-Fi Extravaganza Starts Today

22nd June 2018

The first Galaxy science-fiction convention to be held in Jersey starts today.

The three day celebration includes film showings, live performances, movie props and star guest appearances.

Four Star Wars trilogy actors will be doing a Q and A.

Organiser Michael Lopes says he’s excited to see the weekend play out.

“I have always been a big fan of all things pop culture and have always wanted to do something related to that area. Over the years it was always complicated due to commitments and other things life throws at you to visit convention events in the UK/Europe.

“So after a few years of looking for a new life project I decided that this would be something exciting that could also make a positive impact within our local community. Giving people & families that aren’t able to leave the Island or visit this conventions the opportunity to experience them in a unique way here in the Channel Islands.

“The aim is also to attract lots of people to the Island and grow the events, making them different every year!”

Among the live performers are Boogie Storm, who were boosted to fame in Britain’s Got Talent in 2016.
