The current Doctor, Peter Capaldi, will be in attendance -- as will Executive Producer Steven Moffat. But man, this thing is expensive.
The festival will take place in the Royal Hall of Industries & the Hordern Pavilion on November 21 until November 22 this year. The prices are as follows:
DAY TICKET PRICES · General $195.00 · TARDIS $365.00 · Concession General $99.00 · Concession TARDIS $265.00
The festival follows the success of a similar event in London, and will be made up of typical Convention fare: Q&As with talent from the show and photo and autograph opportunities -- which you'll probably have to pay more for. This part sounds pretty interesting: a series of workshops with the Doctor Who team that go behind the scenes of how the show is produced.
But still pretty pricey.
Fans and New Zealand will also have their own event, not a fully fledged festival, but an event the BBC are calling an 'intimate evening' with Peter Capaldi. Sounds... sexy.
