This year's Southend weeekend is scheduled to take place on the weekend of 19th-21st November 2021.
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 previous events, we plan to hold an additional special event on the Friday evening. The event will include a meal (for those booked into the hotel) followed by an evening's entertainment. In the past we have had Steve Frost's Improv All-Stars, Arthur Smith, Sur Les Docks Wild Willy Barrett and Murray Torkildsen. The Saturday night big band show will feature very special guests. (previous acts have been Jilted John, The Members, 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 session - which has always been the highlight of the convention for many.
It's a very exciting time for Otway as he approaches his 70th Birthday and his 5,000th gig - and the fun starts here.
