First convention to be held for Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson

A convention dedicated to the work of Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson MBE will take place in the spring.

This is the first event of its kind to be organised in honour of the late television and film producer, also known for award-winning shows including Captain Scarlet and Space 1999.

Anderson began his career working from Maidenhead's Islet Park House and the Thunderbirds series were filmed at Slough Trading estate.

His son Jamie took over as head of Anderson Entertainment after his father's death in December 2012 and hopes the event will attract what became known as 'Fandersons' from all over the world.

The convention is due to be held on Saturday, April 19 and Sunday, April 20, at the Park Inn Heathrow hotel.

It will welcome more than 40 cast and crew members of every one of Anderson's productions.

Other attractions will include workshops, screenings as well as question and answers sessions.

Jamie said: "We’ll also be showing never-before-seen set reconstructions showing how the Anderson magic happened."
