Science Fiction & Fantasy Society (Manchester)
FONT is the leading general purpose and free attendance Science Fiction/Fantasy/horror Society in Manchester. The name is an acronym for the Friends Of Neal Tringham, chosen as such for no other reason than we consider him a worthy chap for such an honour. Meetings are laid back, and as informal as informal can be, and great fun. Generally things start at about 8.30 PM, but a few fanatics among us FONTERs... er FONTists..... (whatever) do tend to get to the pub as early as 7.30 PM.
You want to know WHERE we meet? That would make it too easy Oh, alright then - We meet on the 2cd & 4th and occasional 5th Thursdays every month at The Bank, a pub on Moseley Street, near the Manchester City Centre art gallery,
FONT charge no membership levies, so you just need your own beer money.
Books, (Old and new), Films, TV shows, Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror, comics, cutting edge computer/internet games, SF trading cards, toys, - You name it, some FONT member will share your passion for it. Many SF groups specialize in media SF only, or just talk about books. FONT covers the whole range of what SF/Fantasy has to offer. Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Babylon Five are particularly loved by most members of FONT.
When I was a newcomer to the group they made me feel very welcome. I haven't enjoyed such a healthy social life since my student grant ran out (about a fortnight into my studies), many moons ago.
Come along. Enjoy yourself.
There is another FONT page produced by member, Gav Long, at www.gavncal.demon.co.uk which includes all the annual FONT-ZINE magazines which are produced for the Eastercon Science Fiction Conventions which several FONT members usually attend.
The best page to visit for links to all things SF including conventions and local groups and societies is David Langford's formidable Ansible site at http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/Ansible/ansilink.html
