Join us for Valiant 2018, Sheffield's premier Doctor Who event

Now in its eighth year, this single day convention features a series of stage panels where you will get to hear our celebrity guests discuss the show and answer your questions; autograph sessions where you will be able to meet your heroes and collect their autographs*; as well as a professional photo studio; merchandise; a souvenir art card; and the opportunity to socialise with other fans! This year's event focuses on the fortieth anniversary of 'The Key to Time', with a number of actors from season 16.
Unfortunately due to the severe weather in some parts of the country Peter Purves is unable to travel and attend this weekend. However we are thrilled that Dan Starkey (Strax) will be joining us in Sheffield this weekend.
Any further updates will be made via our social media.
