Money Can't Buy

Here at the SF Ball we endeavour to bring you unique and rewarding opportunities. Where else can you give to charity and have a chance to win a special piece of Sci-fi memorabilia?

Each year we scour the land to bring you unusual "money can't buy" objects and SF Ball 24 will be no exception.

Keep coming back to see if we've added more special goodies for you to get your mits on.

Raffle tickets for these great items are £1 each (£5 a strip)

There will be a Money Can't Buy on both Friday during the Opening Ceremony and on Saturday during the Banquet.

All money raised will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust, our nominated charity.

Our Ushers will be selling tickets while everyone gathers for the Friday night opening ceremony and the Saturday night banquet. Make sure you get your dream tickets.

Donated by Richard Estep

Richard Estep has been a paranormal investigator for 21 years, checking into claims of ghosts and hauntings on both sides of the Atlantic. He is the other of several books in the field, the latest of which ("Spirits of The Cage") will be published by Llewellyn Worldwide in August. His work has been dramatized for the TV show "Paranormal Investigators," which is quite shockingly bad (he's still hoping for a second season though). When Richard isn't poking around haunted buildings and writing about it, he is a ghost tour guide at the historic Stanley Hotel, inspiration for Stephen King's "The Shining," and writes extreme horror fiction under a very dubious pseudonym.

...

5th Prize: A Set of Four Signed First Editions.

Four First Editions of "The Worlds Most Haunted Hospitals", "In Search of the Paranormal", "The Haunting of Asylum 49", and "Haunted Longmont".
