July seems to be the month in which bookings suddenly take off for the the SATURDAY NIGHT DINNER, so I'm just letting everyone know that although there's absolutely no rush to book, I now have quite a few names on the list. The dinner will of course have all the usual ingredients: three course meal featuring the Hilton's fine cuisine; the movie quiz; the now famous raffle including new Super 8 and 16mm items; and the film show to round off the evening. The good news is that the Hilton have not raised their prices, so we can maintain the (cost) price of only £20. If you're staying at the Hilton with the special Film Fair deal, you can transfer your Saturday night dinner to the Film Collectors' Dinner at no extra charge, so long as you let me know.

If you're planning to stay at the Hilton, it may be wise to speak to Julie Vincent there soon, because one of the latest people booking told me that she said there are not many discounted Film Fair rooms left.

Just a reminder that anyone travelling to Blackpool by train should ideally book soon as some of the lowest advance fares won't be available for much longer. I managed the return trip - East Croydon to Blackpool North - for £40, but you get a better deal by changing at Birmingham New Steet!

Please also note that someone who recently booked for the Dinner was told by Julie Vincent that he had obtained the last discounted single room at the Hilton, so anyone needing a single should now probably opt for one of the popular alternatives liked by film collectors.

I've just seen the programme for the Friday evening show and it looks very entertaining. It will feature presentations from Lee Mannering, Mark Norton and Simon McConway, showing some of their favourite shorts using different 8/16mm projectors. There will even be a rare 1980s Elf/Eiki film promoting their projectors! So there's every incentive to treat yourself to an enjoyable break, ideally arriving by Friday evening and leaving on Monday.

I'm booked to stay from Thursday to Monday to give me more time to look round (maybe as far as Preston) than I've had in previous years.
