The Official International Queen Fan Club
The Official International Queen Fan Club is the official fan club for the rock band Queen. Based in London, it was officially founded in February 1974 by Pat and Sue Johnstone after the release of the band's first album. At one stage, the worldwide membership of the club reached 20,000 people. Magazines are put out quarterly, contain information on the band, offer band merchandise, and feature a letter to the club members by one band member. In the late 1980s, the club started to put on annual conventions at different venues in England and these get-togethers are still continuing to this day, with the 32nd Queen Convention taking place in October 2017 at Haven Golden Sands Holiday Park, Mabelthorpe.
