Convention 2013

The 2013 Auf Wiedersehen, Pet Convention weekend has been and gone, and what a weekend it was!  Over the weekend of the 20th of September 2013 , 4 events were organised to celebrate 30 years of this iconic show. Stars  of the show came from far and wide to join in the celebration. On the evening of the 21st, the ‘Brickies Banquet’ brought  together Tim Healy, Kevin Whately, Julia Tobin, Melanie Hill, Lesley Saint-John, Val McLane, Franc Roddam, Ian la Frenais,  Dick Clement, Stan Hey, Roger Bamford and Tony Charles for the first time in years, to help turn the weekend in to  something very special for fans who could attend.  The biggest surprise of the night was for the writers of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet Ian la Frenais & Dick Clement who were  awarded for their Outstanding Contribution to Comedy and Drama by the Royal Television Society North East and The  Border. Stars who couldn’t be in attendance because of work commitments, made sure they made the effort to record  interviews and segments for fans to enjoy. Tim Spall, Jimmy Nail and Christopher Fairbank spoke about how the show has  changed their lives over the years. ‘The Hut’ was mentioned and how it wasn’t cleaned for 12 months, and became almost  unbearable to film in during 1982/83. We also got to hear from the cast about how Gary Holton and Pat Roach’s deaths  affected their lives.  A touching moment from Kevin Whately brought tears to the eyes of fans who were there.   The biggest cheer on the night was for……Lesley Saint-John! After meeting her first on the Friday night, I was telling her  how big of a star she was to myself and Auf Wiedersehen, Pet fans. Although I think Lesley didn’t believe me, the roar of  the crowd when she was introduced was massive, and enough to prove me right!  
September 2013 saw Auf Wiedersehen Pet’s writers, directors, cast and crew  gather in Newcastle to reminisce and celebrate the shows 30th Anniversary  since it first hit our screens on the 11th November 1983.   Narrated by our very own Tim Healy, this beautifully produced DVD tells the  evolution of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet and is packed with inside stories, unseen  bloopers, interviews and surprises including previously unreleased Sunday for  Sammy 2000 footage – the inspiration behind Auf Wiedersehen Pet's return to  our TV in 2002! This DVD really is a must for every Auf Pet fan! Again,  proceeds go to the Sunday for Sammy Trust.   Order your copy now, here.
