Big Finish has announced it will be hosting a YouTube live stream event on Saturday 1 August 2020, featuring a galaxy of stars from its audio dramas.
The live stream will be available at the Big Finish YouTube channel from 16:00 (UK time) and will include a one-off selection of interviews, panels, mini-documentaries and other visual treats. Big Finish has also promised that exclusive news to be revealed during the live stream.
“We were disappointed to have to cancel our annual one-day Big Finish Day event at Derby QUAD, but we racked our brains to think what was possible by way of an alternative,” said Big Finish Creative Director, Nicholas Briggs. “Throughout the coronavirus crisis, we’ve continued to produce many audio dramas so we thought a little peek into our lockdown lives might be fun. Virtual Big Finish Day promises star guests and surprises, as cast, crew and fans come together to make a special online event where everyone is invited.”
Set to appear across this six-hour celebration are more than 30 actors, musicians and writers from a variety of Big Finish productions, including Jamie Anderson, Mark Bonnar, John Dorney, Carole Ann Ford, Louise Jameson, Alex Kingston, Joe Kraemer, Paul McGann, Neve McIntosh, Blair Mowat, Dan Starkey, Catrin Stewart and Nicola Walker.
Big Finish Virtual Day will begin at 16.00 (BST) on Saturday 1 August 2020.
