Starbase Leicester

Sci-Fi and Fantasy Group

Star Base Leicester aka SBL is a Science Fiction and Fantasy group based in Leicester.

Like movies? Like video-gaming? Science Fiction? SBL is a great place to make new friends and to enjoy the things you love (maybe even try some new things) amongst like-minded individuals. This group accepts anyone, no matter their background, as long as they are 16+ and prepared to have a little fun, just turn up and say hello!

We meet at least once a month, for a variety of events organised and run by our members. Regular events include Movie nights, Themed Nights, Megazone, Roleplaying Games, Muchkin, Cinema trips, Console nights and much more. Earlier this year we partnered with Phoenix Squre to put on Leicester's first Sci-Fi Movie Fest which included the ultra rare chance to see 2001: A Space Odyssey on the big screen! We also encourage our members to contribute ideas for events and maybe even run one or two of their own!

We are a totally not for profit group, here to have fun rather than make money. All we ask is for a £1 donation for each meeting that you enjoy, and we don't even ask until your fourth meeting. This allows you to get a feel for the group, before you make any commitment. All monies collected are used to pay for prizes, hire venues, equipment. We're not out to make any money from this group just have some fun and meet newpeople!

Regular meetings: 3rd Friday of every month, 7pm at Phoenix Square. Anyone is welcome to pop in, say "Hi" and join in the fun!

Upcoming events at Phoenix Square:

Fri Sep 16 - Experimental Night 7pm. The first experiment of the year, your chance as SBL members to run an event. That’s right! You choose! If you have a hobby, or idea just let us know and the night is yours.

Fri Oct 21 - AGM and birthday party 7pm. Once a year this meeting is held and each time the AGM is quickly followed by cake and celebrations! The AGM is everyone’s chance to say what they like or don't like about the club and to nominate themselves for a position on the admin team.

Fri Nov 18 - Construction Night 7pm. This event is definitely a club fave, with some of the biggest turn outs, lots of lego, origami, and things to make. Any budding robotics engineers, Frankensteins, shuttle designers are welcome too!
