General admission to The Doctor Who Festival at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on November 21-22, announced by BBC World on Friday, will set you back about $200 ($195 plus a processing and transaction fee).
The cheapest form of entry gets you a one day pass, access to three separate theatre shows to see the cast and writers, a festival lanyard and a show planner.
The twelfth and current doctor, Peter Capaldi, and lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat will be attending and more cast members will be announced.
The BBC First Worldwide festival is pricey when compared to the Supanova pop convention which was staged in Sydney last weekend and will visit Perth this weekend.
To get you through the door at Supanova will set you back $40 and the cast members include Harry Potter stars Jason Isaacs and Bonnie Wright, Elizabeth Henstridge (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D), Willa Holland (Arrow) and Kristin Bauer (Once Upon a Time, True Blood).
The Doctor Who Festival will celebrate the heritage and magic of the show with exclusive access to props, costumes and to meet the makers and the cast of the hit sci-fi TV series.
There’s also limited photo and autograph opportunities, an interactive workshop the show’s creative team and what it takes to be a Doctor Who monster.
Organisers believe fans will pay to attend this “very special premium event”.
“We have done everything we can to ensure that the ticket price is as reasonable as possible. It’s the only official Doctor Who event in Australia where fans will hear exclusively from the star of the show Peter Capaldi, executive producer and writer Steven Moffat plus other cast members,” BBC World told AAP via a statement on Friday.
Capaldi will also attend the festival at Auckland, New Zealand on November 24.
