As some of you know our dear friend Kenny Baker will be attending Film and Comic Con Manchester.
After a long talk with his family we have all come to the decision that its going to be best for Kenny to only appear on one day and that day is going to be the Saturday.
Kenny is 80 years old and dose find the days long so we are only planning to have him at the event for around 4 hours or so.
I know some of you may feel that this is a lot to ask of Kenny but Kenny wanted you to know this is what he really wants, he looks forward to seeing you all at each event and loves to get out of his home and of late he has not been able to do that much.
Kenny wanted you the fans to know he is not planning to do many event over the next year and the events he dose do he will be there only for the one day , apart from Film and Comic Con Manchester Kenny's only other events he is planning to attend this year are the following.
Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st May 2015 - EventCity, Manchester
Olympia, Fri 17th to Sun 19th July 2015
Friday 11th to Sunday 13th September 2015 - Radisson Hotel, Heathrow
One other point that you all should know Kenny will only be at these events for a shortened day so the time that he will be autographing will be limited and as such he is not going to sign for dealers only fans.
This means Kenny he will only sign up to 5 items per person and no more this makes if fair for the real fans out there that still need his autograph in the limited time he will be at the show signing.
Kenny's autograph price will be £25 per autograph this is so real fans line up to buy them and not dealers looking to buy autographs to put away and invest.
I have been a personal friend of Kenny's for over 26 years and look upon him as a member of my family, both Drew who looks after Kenny day to day and myself have talked this over and worked out what is best for Kenny and still achieve what he wants out of life, this is what we have come up with so i hope you can all see why this is a fair workable way forward for Kenny.
We felt is was important to explain why things are changing a little and also give everyone a heads up so that if you did want to meet Kenny then there are now only going to only be a few chances a year to do it so do not miss out.
We all look forward to seeing Kenny on Saturday.
See some of you there also :-)
