2018 It has been a good year

As we draw an end to 2018 we would like to thank all our members for their continued, and has to be said amazing support this year. Command staff and crew members, front of house or behind the scenes, our members through the continual building and development of stunning screen accurate costumes, event coordination, organiser liaison... and of course ‘trooping’ at events to raise money for charity, just continues to get better and better.

This year across the whole of the UK more than 38,500 trooper hours were freely given by our members at over 500 event days, generating thousands of pounds for various charities…

..and that doesn’t include the time taken by our members to travel to and from the events we support, and in some cases, overnight stays too.

And thank you to all our supporters and fans too - the people that come to see us at these events to have their photos taken with us or to meet their favourite characters, and to the families who have allowed us to visit your loved ones in hospital or care facilities to help put a smile on some very poorly little faces. 

Here’s to seeing you all at various events across the UK throughout 2019 – local events to national events, hospitals to hospices, small local charity fund raisers to the big MCM Comic Cons… each and every event is as important to us as it is to you.

Wishing you and yours a great and happy New Year.
