    The Athena Royal Beach Hotel, Paphos, Cyprus - Host's Report

  • 29th Official Queen Fan Club Convention Report

    Presthaven Sands, North Wales, 26th-29th September 2014

    A return to North Wales brought more Queenies along to the annual bash that’s known as the Fan Club Convention. There had been an 17 month wait since last years and everyone in attendance was well up to party like there’s no tomorrow!

    Presthaven Sands in Gronant, next door to Prestatyn, was the venue for our 29th Annual Queen Fan Club Convention, a new venue for the proceedings. The park was vast and the main function ballroom was in the middle of the complex.

    Conventioneers started congregating in the Carousel Bar waiting to check in. The bar was open so made the wait bearable, ‘Convention Water’ started to flow and didn’t stop! People made their way to the allocated caravans to drop off luggage and then head back to the bar to meet up with friends.

    The Friday entertainment started late afternoon with Wayne Plants KARAOKE session which always goes down well. Fans were asked to send their favourite videos so a top 10 chart could be collated. The VIDEO TOP 10 had its countdown to the No.1 which was I Want To Break Free.
