Wyntercon is the premier multi-genre event on the South Coast of England. Now in it’s second year, boasting a bewildering array of attractions, events and fun for the whole family.

Returning to the Winter Garden, in the heart of Eastbourne, this year’s convention takes place from 31st October to 1st November 2015 and is definitely THE place to be this Halloween!

You will also find tons of comic book artists; more special guests (including publisher Dez Skinn and author Robert Rankin); a myriad of merchandise stalls; interactive and creative events for the kids; Cosplay Competitions and much more!
As we continue to celebrate the life and work of Caroline Munro this week here at Space Monsters magazine, we thought we’d take a moment to acknowledge how hard Caroline works even when she’s not making movies and television shows, being interviewed or writing magazine columns. Munro is one of the most sought after guests for film events and horror conventions due to her back catalogue of Lamb’s Navy Rum ads and Hammer horror films as well as being a James Bond girl, sci-fi heroine and long-standing scream queen and 2015 has been one of her busiest years ever!
Caroline’s next convention appearances are at the ODP Celebrity Autograph Convention in Blackpool on the 24th October and a week later she is a Special Guest at WynterCon in Eastbourne – the South Coast’s biggest and best fantasy, sci-fi and horror convention. As well as signing publicity stills, Munro will also be selling autographed copies of her very own magazine The Official Caroline Munro Magazine which folds out into a huge poster! These can also be ordered from Amazon.co.uk at a special discounted price for this week only!

Often referred to as Britain’s “First Lady of Fantasy”, Caroline Munro started her career as a model in the sixties and took roles in numerous British horror movies leading to a long and varied career in the film industry. Munro was a Bond girl in The Spy Who Loved Me, starred in her own sci-fi vehicle Starcrash and was cast as the female lead in notorious 80’s slasher flick Maniac. Never one to rest on her laurels, Caroline now has her own column in Space Monsters magazine, is working on several movie, television and book projects and continues to be a hugely popular guest at film conventions around the world.
Here at Space Monsters magazine we decided it was about time to not only celebrate Caroline’s illustrious past but to bring her back into the public consciousness by looking at what she is doing now as well as Munro’s plans for the future.
So today we launch CAROLINE MUNRO WEEK where we will be sharing news, comments, features, exclusive pics and a few words from the lady herself! If you are on Twitter start sharing our posts and your own memories and pictures of Caroline using the hashtag #CelebrateCarolineMunro.
