Virtual Big Finish Day 2020
Here’s the press release:
Big Finish will be hosting an exciting and unique YouTube livestream event on Saturday 1 August 2020, featuring a galaxy of stars from its audio dramas.
Fans are invited to join in and comment during the livestream at the Big Finish YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/bigfinishprod) from 16:00 (UK time) to enjoy a one-off selection of interviews, panels, mini-documentaries and other visual treats.
Set to appear across this six-hour celebration are more than 30 actors, musicians and writers from a variety of Big Finish productions, including Jamie Anderson, Mark Bonnar, John Dorney, Carole Ann Ford, Louise Jameson, Alex Kingston, Joe Kraemer, Paul McGann, Neve McIntosh, Blair Mowat, Dan Starkey, Catrin Stewart and Nicola Walker.
Big Finish Creative Director, Nicholas Briggs, said:
“We were disappointed to have to cancel our annual one-day Big Finish Day event at Derby QUAD, but we racked our brains to think what was possible by way of an alternative. Throughout the coronavirus crisis, we’ve continued to produce many audio dramas so we thought a little peek into our lockdown lives might be fun. Virtual Big Finish Day promises star guests and surprises, as cast, crew and fans come together to make a special online event where everyone is invited.”
Expect exclusive news to be revealed during the livestream. No formal running order will be published for this virtual Big Finish Day, as guests are still being booked right until the last minute. So make sure you join the fun from the start at 16:00 (UK time) on Saturday 01 August 2020, or you might miss out.
