Last Sunday I was invited to be a guest at UNITY in Exeter which is a quite a distance from my Studio. UNITY is a family centric fun day for adults and children that raises money for charity. So I jumped into my car nice & early for journey ahead of me.
I am glad I went early too, as this turned out to be one of the hottest days of the year thus far. For me it was nice and simple to get to. M5 South, turn off Junction 29 first left, take the slip road towards Rockbeare/ Sowton, then arrive at The Golden Pond, Rockbeare. Just look for it on your right.
No need for a pesky Sat Nav then!
The show included the involvement of the UKCM and Exewing costumers, which is a Star Wars sci-fi costuming group that help raise money for charity. This was not the day for costuming though! Just imagine wearing a full Stormtrooper body armor in the midday heat. Tatooine's got nothing on Exeter. Poor buggers!
Lets not forget, the guy in his full body ALIEN suit. Its okay though he ended up sitting in the kids paddling pool to cool down.
As for me it was sketch as usual, though this time I also got to chill out and spend some time with great people too.
All in All it was a fun, relaxed & enjoyable weekend. Special thanks to Kai Geekmaster Wong for inviting me.
Over the weekend we also managed to raise £786 for the Exeter Leukaemia Fund & stop an Alien from dehydrating.
I also got to hang out with the other 2 guests Georgina Burford (Dr Who) & Julian Lee Seager (WorldWar Z & MARVEL films), which was fun.
On the evening there was Geek Night, i.e a pub quiz for geeks. With (& I must say this) one of the finest & most filling All you can eat Chinese Buffets I have tried & trust me I tried! 5 plates isn't pushing it, is it?
