There will be rare, unseen and exclusive video footage going back to the bands early gigs in the UK. like pre- ‘Indian Rope’, early ‘Some Friendly’ and ’10th & 11th’ footage taken in Japan, and North America and
personal film footage from throughout the bands career. Everybody will get the chance to see the new artwork and promo items from the new single and album and there will be competitions and exclusive prizes throughout the day.
The whole event is about this very special band The Charlatans and is a celebration of the very special community that has existed, and progressed from the days of the fanzine ‘Looking For The Orange One’, through the likes of ‘109’ to www.thecharlatans.net, together with all the supporting fanzines and fansites over the years.
