London: 1999
A 50th Anniversary Celebration

September 11 – 17, 2024

Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s Space: 1999

We are honored to be hosting this historic event, which will include an incredible array of your favorite celebrities, writers, producers, directors, visual effects wizards, and key behind-the-scenes personnel.

We’ll have a wide variety of programming to enjoy, with recollections of working on the series from your favorite celebrities, plus autographs and photo-ops that’ll create lasting memories!

There will also be an amazing exhibit or original props, models, set-pieces and costumes in our exclusive screen-used props & museum area, world-premiere presentations, a dealers/vendor room, VIP access, charity auctions and a few other very special surprises you won’t want to miss!

We’ll also be visiting famous filming locations used throughout the series like Pinewood Studios, Black Park, SFX facility Bray Studios and others during our excursions and day-trips.

London: 1999 – A 50th Anniversary Celebration will proudly welcome fans and aficionados from around the world from September 11th to 17th, 2024 – hard to believe, but that’ll be exactly 50 years after filming the episode Death’s Other Dominion. Maybe we’ll even invite Brian Blessed!!

In following a long tradition of charitable work in the name of Space: 1999, we are proud to be raising money for the Alzheimer’s Research Centre, in memory of Gerry Anderson – as well as GOSH, the Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity, in memory of Sylvia Anderson!
