Sci Fight!

Police were called to a science fiction convention after an argument between two rival groups of fans.

Trouble flared at the fourth Norwich Sci-Fi and Film Convention at the University of East Anglia, organised by Norwich Star Wars Club.

Police were called after members of the rival Norwich Sci-Fi club arrived to get autographs from two Doctor Who actors at the event on Sunday.

Norfolk Police confirmed officers attended and spoke to both parties.

A spokesman said they had been called to reports of a man being assaulted at the convention.


Mr Poole said two other members of his club, one dressed as the 10th Doctor and the other as Judge Dredd, had waited outside the venue.

"This wasn't a fight between Star Wars fans and Doctor Who fans with lightsabers and sonic screwdrivers drawn," he said.


And the Daily Mash piles in too :lol:

Those stormtrooper pics are not of the people involved.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

These are not the droids you are looking for.

The UK Garrison says
Although flattering that they all used photos of us I suppose, this is giving us undeserved negative publicity.

The UKG is a very professional club & be assured that we would never behave in such a manner.

This reminded me of a Home Movies episode where kids who attend a Medieval Fair fight kids at a Sci Fi Convention next door (better quality on Netflix):



Good episode.

Just being from Norwich should be shame enough for not causing trouble.
