Peter Capaldi Heads to Scotland for Charity Convention

Peter Capaldi will be at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange for his first time at a Scottish convention.

The Twelfth (or thirteenth, depending on your point of view) Doctor himself will be making a very special appearance alongside Fifth Doctor Peter Davison at Capital Sci-Fi Con 2019. Capaldi will be there on Saturday 16th February 2019, while the event itself will take place over three days, 15th-17th February. Capaldi will be kindly donating his entire proceeds of his autograph sales to the charity CHAS.

Capaldi says:

“CHAS is an incredible charity and I’m proud they have invited me to my first ever Scottish fan event.”

Joining the two Peters will be Warwick Davis (Nightmare in Silver), a long-time stalwart of Lucasfilm, and Star Wars support actors Jerome Blake and Chris Parsons, the latter portraying Mark Hamill’s hand-double (not the hand that flew down the Cloud City chute, I’m guessing, but I suppose a hand is perfect for signing autographs. Which is handy).

Capaldi has a suggested donation fee of £30 for autographs for adults, and just £10 for children. But everything he makes goes to charity, so give generously, folks!

Capital Sci-Fi Con, Edinburgh’s not-for-profit pop culture, comic, and movie convention for fans by fans, has been running since 2016, raising a phenomenal £187,572 for the charity. Every year, they bring together an amazing guest line up from the worlds of film and TV, as well as comic artists/writers, guest talks and photo shoots, Cosplay competitions, official movie props, and merchandise stands.

For conventions times, guest appearance schedules, tickets and how to get there, head to the official site.
