Hitchcon'09With apologies for the rather short notice(!), those in London today who have nothing already planned for this rather grey, damp day, should consider a jaunt down to the Southbank Centre for Hitchcon'09, a celebration of Douglas Adams and his iconic Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Taking place 30 years after H2G2 first appeared, and 8 years after Douglas's sad passing, it includes never-before-seen images from his personal archives, including pictures from his jamming sessions with David Gilmour, a good friend who even gave him the experience of joining Pink Floyd on stage for one song at Earls Court in 1994 as a birthday present!

The event also includes performances featuring actors from the original radio show, and much more. Events kick off at 11:30am this morning, with the first session starting at 12:30pm; more details of everything on offer at and at
