The folks from FACTS 2004 write: This weekend FACTS 2004 will take place, the biggest science fiction, fantasy & anime convention in the Benelux. Last year’s edition, the fourteenth already, (which was attended by John Rhys-Davies) drew nearly 5.000 visitors, a number we sure hope to beat this year again.

This year we will be welcoming quite a few guests again, amongst which David Carradine, Dirk Benedict, four Star Wars actors and Lawrence Makoare.

We will be having four PS2 consoles with the new game ‘The Lord of the Rings : the third age’ (courtesy of E.A.).

And of course the Belgian LOTR fanclub Elanor will be attending our show, as will many dealers with lots of LOTR related merchandise.

FACTS 2004 will take place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th, both days from 10 AM till 5 PM. Entrance is 7,- € per day, cos’ players get in at 4,- €. (children under 10, accompanied by an adult, get in for free).

The fun will happen in the I.C.C. (Internationaal Congres Centrum), Citadelpark in 9000 Ghent. The convention room can easily be reached by car, by train (the station Ghent St-Pieters is only a five minutes walk) and by bus.
