A very special fan-event for, about and around the actor Richard Armitage is coming in March 2012.

That Mr. Armitage has an army behind him, an accomplishment even our highly valued King Richard III had some difficulties with, is no secret. Some reporters are (or should I say, most reporters can’t refrain from) teasing the actor about it.


That the fandom of Mr. Armitage does not only say
A‘ for army, but also
B‘ for blogs,
is not so widely known.


The well founded and far spread support Richard Armitage has online, becomes evident in the wide ‘bloggo-sphere’, where people talk and discuss his roles, his career, his acting and all kinds of news around this actor, like now, the upcoming film of “The Hobbit” by Sir Peter Jackson.


That blogging is not only a singular business consisting of monologues, but a discussion and network of friends and a helpful and connected, not only committed community, some bloggers around the founder of the event, Nat (Richard Armitage Fan Blog), showed already two years ago with the first FanstRAvaganza event in the year 2010.


Servetus, the blogger responsible for the naming of the event, wants to excuse the long name, but it in my opinion is exquisite, consisting of the key elements of the Richard Armitage (for insiders RA) fandom:


Fans (the key element),

extra (for extraordinary),

extravagant (for a very special moment in time),

RA (for the reason of everything).


So what better name could this event possibly have?


The third and so far ‘biggest’ event will handle the growing interest in Mr. Armitage and the increasing number of blogs, by organising the event in a new way:

It will consist of 8 anchor bloggers (posting every day of the 1 week of FanstRAvaganza),

and a team of tagged bloggers around them (posting single posts or not daily).

More details can be found in this article by Servetus, who will kindly organise the participation for the event.


The KingRichardArmitage website will take part in this FanstRAvaganza event, as Mr. Armitage is the reason, that this website and the petition movement for a filming project around King Richard III exists.

More details will follow closer to the event, which starts Monday, 12th of March, 2012.


We hope you will enjoy our contributions and the FanstRAvaganza event surrounding it.
