Sydney Supanova and the LFMBEC Dinner is the highlight for many Australian phans. Some have missed the past two years of their annual religious experience due to COVID-19 but the excitement has started to catch on. Will you be in attendance?
There will be phan meetings a plenty during the weekend to catch up for swapping stories, comics and other random Phantom items along with Supanova, the LFMBEC dinner plus so much more. What is to follow is our attempt of a guide for every phan who is attending the weekend.
Phan Catch Ups
There will be two generic phan catch ups over the weekend open for ALL phans.
Friday night catch up at the Mecure Hotel pub in the Sydney CBD from 7pm-ish.
Saturday lunch at a restaurant near the convention. We will be meeting at Matt Kyme's booth at 1pm and then heading to the restaurant after.
The LFMBEC Dinner is an all time phan phavourite. This is the highlight for many a phan of the weekend. The dinner draws phans from around the four corner of Australia and the world including Europe, USA, New Zealand and Japan.
This event is NOT open for all. It is by invite only. The guest speaker for the evening is Daniel Picciotto. To learn more about the event we recommend visiting their website LFMBEC.org.
The aim of the dinners are:
To keep alive the memory of Lee Falk, creator of The Phantom
To meet regularly to share our pleasure in all things Phantom
To do this aided by good food and good wine in a refined and convivial atmosphere
To invite exceptional and interesting Phantom people to be guest speakers at these gatherings
To raise money through our activities for the New Children's Hospital at Westmead
The event is Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th June - you can find out more at their website including how to buy tickets and the schedule for the weekend which will be posted closer to the date.
