Also, the Paralympics in particular run up all the way to September 9th (two days after Knightmare's actual landmark day).
And on the subject of sport, it may be worth noting that England have a World Cup qualifier on the actual anniversary, so there are bound to be some people watching the match that night.

Hardly a good omen for winning the cup. ;) I wonder if their possible-manager-to-be will give them specially adapted kit bags... called Redknappsacks.

Hahaaa!

Without wanting this thread to go off-topic, I wonder if I was the only Knightmare fan shouting "KNAPSACK!" when today's Pointless final involved words beginning & ending with 'K'. :)

Is anyone from the community acquainted with Alec Westwood on Facebook? Would be cool to hear his thoughts on Knightmare, since he was there from the start. I'm guessing the picture of Folly on his profile means he remembers it with some fondness.

I said it! Unfortunately, at least one of the hundred people they questioned must have said it too.

If there's scheduling conflicts such as football/paralympics then it'll just have to be taken on the chin, I'm sure not everyone's a sport-minded person and we can definitely promote ourselves as an alternative to "all the sport that's happening"!

I hope to get momentum for Knightmare projects going elsewhere as of next week, and give some additional feedback to what's already been suggested.

sounds great, apart of the problem that we all have bust lives now and seldom have any free time, which is annoying, i know i don't have any time being a teacher

Four and a half months to go until the anniversary... I don't suppose any plans have actually come together?

Some good timing from Challenge may answer that! As for James, he's been unwell recently so I wouldn't expect him to advance his plans further until the VIM spells kick in.

Thanks. I have had a bit of a lead in the past couple of weeks, but won't say anything else until a.) I follow it up which hopefully should be fairly soon and b.) the lead in question does actually go ahead.

It's worth noting that any end product on my behalf probably won't happen in September now, though I'll do whatever I can to have at least something by the end of the year.

Really hope Challenge TV do go ahead with their own plans though, would be a massive bonus.

We get Challenge TV here and they keep putting on different retro programmes week in week out, but never Knightmare, most of the youtube downloads are from Challenge when it showed the original series about five or six years ago, but there hasn't been anything since. I really hope they can bring it back and have marathons of knightmare or if not that, then a hour long edition at a time. The 25th anniversary would be a fitting time to show the series again, and put on the very first episode, even if I can't quite remember it.

Please can we have this show back on television again, don't care what channel, just want to see it again. :-/

Hello everyone,

I would like to make a few proposals for community meetups to commemorate Knightmares' 25th, so far there have been some good suggestions. Now I would like to see some dates booked in the diary!

1. Mediaeval banquet at Coombe Abbey near Coventry. This could be an exciting alternative to the usual. I have picked here because of the central location.

2.Mediaeval banquet at Warwick Castle, again central location.

3.Group trip to Alton Towers. Blackpool proved to be very successful in 2010 seeing the largest number in attendance in recent years.

4. Lastly, Thorpe park. I believe I am able to claim up to 50% off group tickets through a work scheme. I will need to check on how this would work but the savings could be rewarding especially booking up outside school holidays. :)

Let me know what you think.
