    Multiverse 4 is now less than 7 weeks away. Have you ordered your convention tickets, banquet tickets, trivia night tickets etc yet? If not, do it soon. do it NOW!

    The program is now locked in and we can now give you a run down of the major events being run at the weekend.
    ?The main guests - Anthony Daniels (Star Wars saga), Virginia Hey (Farscape/Mad Max), Brian Thompson (X-Files/Buffy/Star Trek/others) will each be doing talks or panels and autographing each day of the convention. The guests will also be taking part in other activities throughout the weekend (where they can) including attending the banquet, attending the trivia night/pizza banquet, attending the chocolate panel, and taking part in costume and art display judging amongst other things.
    ?There will be a full Anime program running all 3 days of the convention arranged by the Melbourne Anime society - 9 hours a day.
    ?Friday night is a meet and greet night. Convention attendees can mingle in the bar area and talk to each other (a novel concept I must say). There will be nibbles supplied and drinks will be at bar prices. for those not interested in talking, the video programs will be operating as well. And of course, should you wish to help (yes please), we can always do with a hand stuffing con bags and setting up tables etc.
    ?Saturday sees a full stream of costuming talks and a costume display as well as art talks and an art display
    ?Saturday night is a banquet with the theme of Raiders of The Lost Ark 20th anniversary. This is your chance to have a good meal and spend the night celebrating this first in a great series of films. come in costume and prepare to have a good night.

    ?Sunday sees a stream of fan films and talks on making fan films.
    ?Sunday night will be the Pizza Banquet / Trivia Night - the latest in a series of trivia nights from multiverse events. This one will be great, especially following the eating of pizza!
