Worthing Events CIC is setting up Worthing Wormhole on November 11th 2017. Our event will take place in the daytime at the Assembly Hall and in the Evening at St Pauls in Worthing.
We are looking for funding to improve the non-commercial aspects of the day such as:-
- Actual science and it's relation to fiction
- Wall art project & school art work exhibition
- Astronomy presentation
- Creative storytelling workshops
- Local school & theatre group performances
The day event will include guests for signings and panels (actors, authors etc), table top games, sci fi films, gaming, cosplay and stalls. there will be opportunities for local theatre groups to do live performances on stage. The event will also include children's workshops and adult workshops that will be educational as well as entertaining.
We aim to include some hands on activities such as crafting, story creation/reading for children and talks on science and astronomy. The crowdfunding money will help pay for the venue and also give us the finances to include more non-commercial & educational elements to the day.
The aim is to put on a fun event with cultural value that also offers local arts groups a chance to perform and families and children to access educational workshops and activities.
The evening event will be at St Pauls which will include retro gaming, a photo booth and performances from the amazing comedy "Chap Hopper" Professor Elemental with support and a final ever performance by Invokal. After this there is a superb funk band called Sol Diez and DJs to end the party. This part of the event should be self funding from ticket sales.
We are offering a range of sponsorship packages and hope that sponsors will get involved in the event and attend on the day.
