Doctor Who Festival: Official BBC Event Announced for November

After the success of the 50th Anniversary Celebration in 2013, the BBC have confirmed that Doctor Who is returning to the London ExCel for another special event with cast and crew.

The event, the Doctor Who Festival, is scheduled for November, and prominent members of the cast and crew such as Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman will be attending. Further details can be seen in the press release below:
BBC Worldwide has announced details of the official Doctor Who Festival which will take place at ExCeL, London, on the 13th, 14th and 15th November 2015. It will be attended by Peter Capaldi (the Doctor) along with series show runner Steven Moffat and it will offer fans an exclusive glimpse into how the world of Doctor Who is created. 
Peter Capaldi commented, ‘If having the world’s favourite Time Lord back on screen every week isn't enough for you (and it’s not for me) then The Doctor Who Festival in London is the place to be. I'll be heading there in November to join the fun and if it’s anything like the 50th anniversary event, then prepare yourself for total Time Lord mania.’ 
Visitors to the Festival will be able to explore an exciting array of backstage areas including theatre shows involving key talent, Interactive Workshops and ‘the ultimate Doctor Who shopping village’ offering photo opportunities and a vast range of merchandise. 
Steven Moffat commented, ‘I can’t believe we’re going to give away our secrets! This is the closest you could possibly get to finding out what happens on set and how this magical show is put together.’
A day ticket will give fans access to several exclusive panels with the cast and crew, and attractions showcasing sets from series 9 and detailing exactly how the show is made. For more details, the official Festival site has been launched, and can be found here.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow (5th June), at 10am UK time. Ticket prices start from £65.
