Founded in 1971, meeting monthly and still going strong, the B.S.F.G. is a non-profit-making organisation that provides an informal atmosphere in which SF fans can meet one another and professionals in the field. You can find out more about us elsewhere on this website, meanwhile here are some details of our next two meetings.

9th September 2016
The Best Science Fiction film - ever?

Since our proposed meeting was cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control, we have a group discussion on the best science fiction films out there. The last time this was so popular that it over-ran and spilled over into the newsletter afterward. A decade has passed since then and there are a lot more films to be considered and opinions will probably have changed on some of those that were populare previously. And this time we might even have clips or trailers to help you make up your mind.

OUT OF THE DARKNESS
PLUTO AND THE OUTER WORLDS
Andy Lound

Pluto's discovery in 1930 seemed to be the epitome of planetary discovery in the solar system; yet it was just the beginning of a new era of planetary discovery. This presentation traces the history of the discovery of Pluto and the exploration of this distant world by the New Horizons spacecraft. Pluto's position as a trans-Neptunian world is also examined. Illustrated with the latest images of Pluto, artwork and video; accompanied by music. Take an Odyssey into the darkness. Presented by Andy Lound who appears regularly on Big Centre TV, Radio 4 and Radio WM on subjects as diverse as the Titanic, Scott of the Antarctic, and various aspects of space exploration and astronomy.

PLACE: Briar Rose Hotel, Bennett's Hill

TIME: Doors open at 7.30 pm for an 8pm start.
