THE EAGLE SOCIETY ANNUAL DINNER
5th-7th April 2016
Best Western Donnington Manor Hotel

 

The Eagle Society is dedicated to the memory of 'Britain's National  Strip Cartoon Weekly - Eagle' 1950-1969.

The Society has about 250 members. Membership includes the excellent quarterly journal -- EAGLE TIMES. Its focus is on Eagle/Dan Dare early years. There are also various events run by the society: each year we have a weekend where former Eagle artists or writers and invited as guests. There are also Eagle Days at different locations around the country each year: these are informal events for members to bring along original artwork for display and to talk over old times.
