  • About Us

    Who we are:

    StarBase Leicester aka SBL is a Science Fiction and Fantasy group, here in Leicester (UK) since 2005. SBL is a great place to make new friends and to enjoy everything sci-fi, fantasy and gaming related amongst like-minded individuals. This group accepts anyone, as long as they are 18+ and prepared to be kind and have fun.

    What we do:

    We meet every month, for a variety of events, both for our members and by our members and have even started our own book club! Regular events include quizzes, creative writing , boardgames, Cinema trips, Console and gaming nights and more. We also encourage our members to contribute and run ideas of their own.

    • Third Friday of each month: Regular event at the Secular Hall
    • Last Sunday of the month: Book Club
    • Second Saturday: Digital day over on our Discord

    We also take on some more extreme events like the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge in aid of the British Red Cross. That’s Pen-y-Ghent (2,276 feet) Whernside (2,415 feet) and Ingleborough (2,372 feet). In 2023 we walked and cycled 1779 miles! That’s the same distance Frodo and Sam travelled with the One Ring between Hobbiton and Mount Doom and we actually smashed the target going over 2000 miles for Loros! They were amazing challenges and a time the team will never forget

    Values and aims:

    • Be inclusive and safe
      Anyone is welcome, that means no one’s franchise or fandom is ever to be belittled etc and if we can adapt our events for any disabilities, identifiers etc we’ll be happy to
    • Be enjoyable
      Our club is here to be fun and social, we want you to have a great time at our event so encourage leaving politics and arguments outside if they’re going to get heated or offensive.
    • Be supportive
      We support each other, the planet and community

    Funding:

    We are a totally not for profit group, here to have fun rather than make money. If you would like to make a donation to help hire venues and buy equipment you are very welcome to of course.  All monies collected are used to pay for prizes, hire venues, and equipment. Donations can be given in person at events or via pay pal at https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/starbaseleicester selecting friends and family (we’re not a business or service).  At events you will see a donations tub and we don’t even suggest donations until your 4th event when you become a member.
