Space Lectures and Ken Willoughby are able to confirm some of the details for the first event of 2015!
  • April 24th; Dinner at the Wentbridge House Hotel with all the usual trimmings i.e. photo shoot, auction and signing.

  • April 25th the public lecture at Carleton Community High School complete with prize raffle and a second signing. Timings and ticket prices for both are the same as those for Fred Haise in October.
I eluded to this event some weeks ago on the Fred Haise thread and already 60 lecture tickets and 35 dinner have been sold to date.

I did state that I would start a new thread as and when I could name names but at this stage I am unable to do so.

But I thought it reasonable to let people know what I could in order to facilitate budgets, holidays, hotel bookings etc asap.

The name of the astronaut will be announced at the Fred Haise event in October.

To the best of my knowledge this pioneer has not appeared previously in the UK but I can confirm the contract has been signed and the deposit paid already so we are good to go.

People who have paid for their tickets for the April 2015 event already can collect them in person from Ken following the Fred Haise lecture.

Anybody who would like to pay Ken in person for April 2015, by either cash or cheque please, can do so at the Fred Haise event also.

Be sure and give Ken your name and address details; for an additional £1 Ken will provide envelopes and postage for mailing out tickets.

We are already pulling together memorabilia for the April event auction.

A great deal of time and effort goes into the planning and organisation to ensure the attendees and the astronaut have a positive experience of the Space Lecture events.

Tickets for the April 2015 event will be coming from the printers next week.

Since Ken Willoughby plans on naming the April 2015 guest at the Fred Haise event in October I'd imagine he will hold off mailing them until the week after Freddo...
