The Whoovers was created in 1999 by a group of Doctor Who fans. We meet the first Friday of every month at 19:30 at the QUAD, Market Place, Cathedral Quarter, Derby. DE1 3AS.
We regularly have invited special guests from the classic and current series.
We also organise the annual Whooverville convention
WHOOVERVILLE 12 – THE RETURN
Now, where were we before we were so rudely interrupted…
We are delighted to announce that Whooverville 12, our entirely fan-run, unofficial, one-day convention for fans of the legendary BBC television series Doctor Who returns to Derby QUAD, on Saturday September 4th, with a full roster of guests from both the classic and modern eras of the popular science-fiction show.
Whooverville 12 was originally scheduled for October 2020, but in common with so many events, it had to be postponed due to the ongoing pandemic. Tickets sold for last year are still absolutely valid, although exceptionally, holders of those tickets will be able to apply to QUAD Box Office for a refund, if they prefer.
With restrictions being lifted, we have every hope and expectation that we will be able to hold Whooverville 12 as normal; however, just to err on the side of caution, we are only releasing 150 more tickets for sale immediately. The remaining 60 tickets will be released for sale in June, only if, as expected, the UK government is able to announce the end of social-distancing requirements. If that does not happen, Whooverville will go ahead with fewer attendees than usual.
Ticket prices for Whooverville 12 are, of course, the same as they were last year – £50 full price, £33 concessions or £10 Under 12s. As usual at Whooverville, ticket price includes entry to all interviews and panels plus one free autograph per official guest, with additional (reasonable) charges for extra autographs, autographs from sponsored guests and photo-shoots.
We are not able to make any guest announcements just yet. Please keep an eye out for these in the coming months.
