Back back to the Attic

We wanted signatures for the European Parliament Day allocation scheme. We managed to get 4,943. Just fifty seven short of what was required for automatic selection to the next round. We have sent the paperwork anyway you never know we may get somewhere? Thanks to all that signed the petition.

We've received the official confirmation on 1st April 2005 that from 2006, June 16th will be known as "European Rocky Horror Day".

Quote from the letter we received......

"In recognition of the cultural impact the work "The Rocky Horror Show" has had on the people of Europe, it has been decided that from 2006 the day of 16th June will formally recognised as a European commemorative day."

For those of you wondering why June 16th, that was the first date the show was performed, right here in the UK.

I'll try and scan the original letter later, if I can get my scanner software to work.
For now scroll down the page for the very latest news on this.






















Happy April 1st 2005!

Yep, it's us again. This time around TimeWarp had the help of the following wonderful people that kept the illusion going.

Big thanks to Amy, Davy, Rob, Karl and Saffy

These were the fake What's New entries for 2004 that helped the gag to run.

'European Womens Day', 'European Parents Day', that kind of thing. Well we thought we'd start a petition to see if we could get a 'European Rocky Horror Day' either for Halloween or 16th June when it was first performed. Click this link to sign our petition.
