Hitchcon 09


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

On the 30th anniversary of the first publication of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy by the late great Douglas Adams and the eve of the release of a brand new addition to Adams' legacy, this is a day of celebration, spectacle and delight voyaging deep into the Hitchhiker's Universe.

Start the day at a photocall of the largest number of Hitchhiker fans ever (11.30am on the riverside terrace). Remember to wear your dressing gown and bring along a towel.

At 1.30pm in the Clore Ballroom there's a mega-signing of the new editions of the first five Hitchhiker novels.

And at 5.45pm you can buy the new sixth book in the series a day before everyone else and get it signed by Eoin Colfer.

Many other out-of-this-world events and entertainments throughout a day devoted to H2G2 â including special free screening of the Hitchhiker series in the Clore Ballroom.

Plus a number of ticketed events in the RFH itself.
