The 34th annual U.K. Queen weekend convention is back at Haven Golden Sands Holiday Park in Mablethorpe.

The convention which is held over the weekend has become the crowning glory in the calendar of Queen fans. The residential non-stop party where Queen fans congregate from all corners of the globe, is a jam packed weekend full of events featuring live music, guest star interviews, full Queen discos each night, quizzes, games, fancy dress parties, a Queen related Market Place to help search for wanted items to top up collections, a Charity Auction with unique items up for grabs, sport competitions, big screen unseen footage and most popular live shows and videos and more. Here there's Queen from morning till night!

Since the conventions began we have had many guests from the Queenworld past who tell their own unique stories. How did Freddie design the famous gauntlet? What was it like when Freddie met Montserrat Caballe? How did Roger put his first band together? Where did Brian leave the Red Special heading to a gig? Why did the band have a number of bass players? Stories unfold at the event. These stories are from the people that were there and know exactly what happened. Excellent live bands appear. We even had Ibex reform for one of the weekends! Over the years this and much more has happened. Plans are underway to make this year's just as exciting more announcements will be made soon about live bands and guests.

We have had many exclusives at the event. New albums played, exclusive videos shown of documentaries and live concerts from the past and present. We have also had appearances of Brian's Red Special, Rogers drum kit, band stage costumes, Freddie’s stamp collection and even Freddie's Rolls Royce! You just don't know what could be next!

Last year’s guests were Peter Freestone, Mike Moran, Eddie Howell and Jiri Sevcik. There were some fascinating unheard clips from Greg Brooks Queen Archivist, John Blunt from Australia entertained us, Jamie Moses and the Falcons once again rocked the stage and the breathtaking band Queen Machine from Denmark. There is nothing quite like it!

This is the place to meet up with old friends and make new ones. If you have never been before why not come along be join in the fun. Even if you're thinking of coming on your own, before the first night is over we're sure you will have made friends. Everybody is so friendly. This is THE party that never ends!

Our full schedule is still TBC, but we will list acts below as they are confirmed!

TIM STAFFELL

We are pleased to announce that our first guest this year will be Tim Staffell from the band Smile who will be performing for us on the Friday night. Joining him on stage is fellow Hampton Grammar School member Paul Stewart. He was a member of The Others whom Brian and Tim would often see. Tim is featured in the current award winning Bohemian Rhapsody movie. It will be amazing to hear stories of his time in the studio with Brian and Roger last year for the soundtrack and his time with Brian in 1984 and not forgetting with Brian and Roger during the Smile days too of course! Tim was also at college with Freddie, and was the one who introduced Freddie to Brian and Roger - what stories he must have to tell!

CRAZY LITTLE THINGS

Crazy Little Things are proud to play at the 2019 Queen Convention on Saturday night. The band started it in 2017 with 7 very experienced musicians. Dutch music-journalist and editor Jean-Paul Heck interviewed Brian May and Roger Taylor many times in the previous years. In 2011 he contacted Mr May to come over to Holland to collect the Sena European Guitar Award in the Dutch town of Vlissingen. Heck, also a drummer, found in singer Marijn Geluk and keyboard-player Marijn van den Branden the perfect match to start Crazy Little Things. The band was an overnight success in the Netherlands - within a year they were playing a lot of big clubs in their country and sold them out. In the spring of 2019 they where asked to play at the Paaspop (Eastern Pop) Festival in the south of Holland. With 80,000 people this was one of the biggest festivals in the Netherlands. Crazy Little Things is not a band that wants to look or act like Queen. The seven musicians try to emulate the sound of their favorite band but they add their own taste. “There are a lot of very good Queen Tribute Bands and I think we bring the fans a kind of magic in our own way.”

FLASH: A TRIBUTE TO QUEEN

Flash : A Tribute To Queen will be taking to the stage on the Sunday night, and will be adding some new songs to their setlist especially for us Queenies!

Established in 2001, the band has brought together the finest musicians from several other Queen Tribute shows to form a ‘best of the best’ live Tribute to the musical legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen. Every member of the group has been creatively and technically inspired by Queen with each member using replica equipment adding to that extra sound characteristic and an obvious visual treat for Queen fans, they take great satisfaction and pride in producing a show that brings back all the magic that made every Queen concert so very special.
