In this the 50th year of James Bond we are certainly are being spoilt with a number of once off and rare events celebrating 50 years of James Bond. I got the heads up about this rather unique and interesting series of conventions being held right in the heart of London City by London Film Memorabilia Conventions a while back – but haven’t really had the time to look into them properly or mention them. Over the long weekend I had a chance to go through my voice mails and catch on some emails and was reminded of what looks to be a rather spectacular set of conventions for Bondologists James Bond and Hammer fans.
Every Bond fan has a favourite Bond film, possibly even a favourite Bond film from each of the Bonds and Goldfinger may not be my favourite but it will always hold a special place in my heart as it was the first James Bond film I ever saw in glorious 16mm Technicolor so I'll be at -
