Geekfest, Redruth

Saturday 06 August 2022
Location : Heartlands: Robinson's Shaft, Dudnance Lane, Pool, Redruth, TR15 3QY, United Kingdom
We have been invited back to bring Imperial order to the annual Geekfest event in Redruth.
This charity event at the Heartlands Mining Centre will have a number of different film and sci-fi exhibits and Reel Icons and Rebel Command are also welcome to one of Cornwalls biggest events if it's type, now returning after the covid enforced break.
Always a fun weekend for all who troop this is a great weekend in the South West trooping calendar.

As normal we will be expected to interact with the general public for photos and we also have the opportunity of giving a talk and having UK table presence for us to recruit and also spread the good work of what we do.

Event times

The times given are the times we will be on site at the event but unfortunately this doesn't necessarily mean we will be available to meet you throughout the whole of this period. Our plan for the day is usually confirmed with the event organisers closer to the event or even on the day. We will also require refreshment breaks. You may be able to get more specific details from the event organisers themselves if you contact them for when we are scheduled to meet with the public.

Star Wars & Reel Icons costumers

This has been added to the event details to let you know what kind of costumers this event has requested i.e. Star Wars only, Reel Icons only or a mixture of costumers. With all our events, we cannot guarantee what costumers will be available to attend as we are all volunteers who do this in our spare time so it is always on a 'best endeavours' basis.


Unfortunately, sometimes our attendance at an event is cancelled. This is infrequent but can happen for a variety of reasons including the event itself being cancelled or rescheduled by the organiser, inclement weather, costumers that are within the locale of that event being unavailable or ill. We recommend that you check back regularly with this calendar to ensure our attendance at a particular event is still scheduled.

The UK Garrison is proud to support the following charities.
