DJ Delayed

Fan Club convention postponed until 2021.

3 April, 2020

We're sure this won't have come as a huge surprise to anyone, as the likelihood of being able to run any kind of public event in May 2020 edges from "slim" towards "none", but it's now official: the Official Red Dwarf Fan Club have postponed Dimension Jump XXI.

Note the crucial distinction of the word "postponed" - not cancelled. The Club have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that an alternative date could be found before taking the step of officially postponing - and that date will be the weekend of 5-7 February 2021. And to soften the blow of the delay slightly, the Club have also announced that Chris Barrie is the latest confirmed guest to join the lineup for the revised date.

As regards logistical arrangements, the Fan Club explain:

If you have already purchased your weekend passes for the previous dates, these will be valid for the new dates so you do not need to do anything. If you are unable to attend the new dates, a full refund is available to you by contacting the team at before Sunday 31st May. Any cancellations after this date will be subject to our usual cancellation T&Cs.

If you have booked to stay at the Crowne Plaza using the Dimension Jump allocation of rooms, your booking will automatically transfer over to the new dates. You should receive a confirmation email from the hotel within the next few weeks. If you have not received a confirmation email by mid-May, please get in touch with the Crowne Plaza to confirm your reservation.

If you have booked your accommodation outside of our allocation, you will need to contact the Crowne Plaza to change your reservation. Similarly, if you can no longer attend and need to cancel your reservation, please contact the hotel. The hotel has extended their cancellation period until the end of May. Any changes or cancellations that occur after May could result in additional charges.

For enquiries about your reservations, please contact the Crowne Plaza on +44(0)115 936 9936.

More information on our guest line-up for this revised date will be communicated as soon as we have it, so please keep checking our social media announcements and updates. We remain dedicated to creating a fun, positive and safe event to celebrate Red Dwarf and bring the community together, and we look forward to seeing you in February!

Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Please keep yourselves safe and take care of your loved ones and neighbours.

If you have any enquiries, please don't hesitate to contact us at or through our social media channels.

Although this news is of course disappointing, we're sure everyone will agree that it's the most sensible course of action in the current circumstances. We look forward to enjoying the biggest weekend in the Red Dwarf calendar with fans when the new date comes around!
