Meeting other Heep fans.  I think we all had the same reaction, "you mean
someone besides me remember them or care".  Well it happens and the
best fan base known in rock n' roll support the efforts of Uriah Heep, the
associated artist and each other.  Join in if you get a chance to attend one.

Please note that this section in no way down plays the importance of
meetings such as the Stay On Top club in Germany, Circle of Hands
in Japan, or the Gathering of Friends in England.

The first meeting of Heepsters, a small
group but this meeting led to many
larger such events.

during the onslaught of Heepsters.  Another
complete master meeting.

July Mornings, 1999

jam night on Saturday.  Featured guest
appearance by John & Iris Lawton.  The
Heepster Jam Band took a major stride with

London England / May 6 - 7, 2000

the previous one with the first ever performance

Due to the USA Uriah Heep Tour in the
summer of 2001, no official Heepvention
was scheduled.  Instead fans made up 
Mini-Heepventions at concerts in various 
spots around the country. 

Then the Magician's Birthday Party.
