Red Dwarf Convention

What is Dimension Jump?

It’s a Series IV episode of Red Dwarf, yes, but Dimension Jump is also the best weekend on offer for any respectable Red Dwarf fan. Dimension Jump – or ‘DJ’ as it’s colloquially known – is the Red Dwarf convention organised by The Official Red Dwarf Fan Club (TORDFC) team.

Dimension Jump occurs every year or two, starting on the Friday evening at around 6pm and running until around 5pm on Sunday. The weekend is filled with guest Q&As and insightful behind-the-scenes talks, autograph sessions, photoshoots, quizzes, competitions, cabaret, karaoke, a disco, and chance to buy exclusive merchandise. Put simply, it’s more fun than you can shake a pointy stick at!
