The first night of the Convention (June 7th, 2019) will have a festive opening: a mix of Hawaiian Hula Luau and Rock ‘n Roll.
For your education and amusement we booked the dance group Orchidee and the rock band Dean and the Moonboys.
Here are the hula girls :
Later in the eveniBe sure to dear the Dean and the Moonboys will perform. Listen to a relaxed impression:
In between a tribute to Laurel & Hardy will be delivered by one of the youngest members of Perfect Day. It won’t be for him, but the hotel bar and casino will be open till after midnight.
The day will start with in-house registration at the Avifauna Hotel from 1PM (13:00). When you‘re early you won’t be bored during the afternoon. We hope to have a L&H-exposition in the Parrots Room (‘Papagaaien Zaal‘ in Dutch) and in the projection room you can watch Laurel & Hardy talkies and documentaries. And don’t miss the (free) guided tours of the delightful bird park that surrounds the hotel and partycenter, where we will have our first meal (a buffet and toasts) from 6:30PM.
MORE TO COME
Of course all this is still subject to change. There’s still almost nine months to go and it’s impossible to say how exactly the baby will look like. But the necessary bookings and agreements have been made!

Hotel prices are modest as you will see at their website, so there is no special rate for conventioneers. But by mentioning Laurel and Hardy it will be possible in most cases to keep your room when the convention starts.
In the meantime, we will be glad to answer all your questions. Just email info@laurelandhardyconvention
