Cult TV heads inland and to a hotel once more, the Renaissance Solihull Hotel, right in the heart of the country ...


With two successive downturns in attendee numbers, it was obvious that something had to be done in terms of choice of venue, just to see if this would have any effect on increasing support for the Weekender. Whilst the experience of using hotels over the years had been variable, it was decided that Cult TV should take another swing at exploding the myth that most potential attendees prefer hotels and also prefer central locations. You could not get more central in the UK that Renaissance Solihull Hotel, near Birmingham, West Midlands, and the guest list was one of the hottest that has ever been put together for a Cult TV Weekender.

John Saxon, Peter Tork, George Sewell, Kim Darby, David Graham, William Russell, Carole Ann Ford, Prentis Hancock, Phlip Madoc, Michael Keating, Sammie Winmill, Peter Vaughan Clarke, Ronald Wolfe, Johnny Crawford, Jean-Pierre Dorleac, Philip Brodie, Annette Badland, Brian Grant, Sheenagh Pugh and Mitch Benn were just some of the stars who were lined up to entice along attendees. However, two major autograph shows thought it would be a jolly wheeze to move their dates to those already long-announced for the Cult TV Weekender, and this meant another huge hit on attendance numbers - not just for Cult TV, but for them as well - after all, people can't be in two places at once!

However, Cult TV attendees in 2005 agreed that this was one of the most smoothly-run Weekenders that there had ever been, and the Production Team played their part in making it one of our most friendly, organised and efficient events to date.
