This is the official website of Birmingham UFO Group. The group began in 2007 and continues to be one of the most active UFO groups in the UK. We look into cases from the area of Birmingham England and further afield, and are happy to investigate cases from anywhere in the world. Dave Hodrien is both Chairman and lead investigator for the group. He is a regular speaker on the UFO subject and writer for UFO Truth magazine. On this site you can submit sightings, read our case reports & articles, find out details about upcoming events, and explore a wealth of related material. If you are a contactee you may also wish to join in with our online support meetings. We hope you enjoy the site. Please feel free to contact us and get involved.
Much thanks to Ellis Taylor for travelling to Birmingham to give a superb double lecture last night at BUFOG, especially at such short notice. It was very interesting hearing about both his own contact experiences and his research into occult crime cases, and everyone present seemed to really enjoy the evening. Next month we are going to be closing off the year with a showing of the classic movie Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, including some Xmas munchies and a run down of the year by Chairman Dave. For full details see our Events & Lectures page.
Contactee and paranormal researcher Ellis Taylor has now confirmed that he will be able to come to BUFOG next Thursday to give a lecture on his experiences and cases he has investigated. Full details coming soon on our Events & Lectures page.
I regret to inform you that due to personal reasons contactee Mike Smith is no longer able to give his talk next Thursday at BUFOG. He will hopefully be able to come and speak either later in the year or early 2015. The meeting will still be going ahead at the same time. I am currently trying to secure a new speaker, if no-one is available then it will be a documentary night instead. Keep checking here, our Facebook page or E-Mail for updates - BUFOG Chairman Dave
On the evening of Thursday 20th November contactee "Mike Smith" will be coming to BUFOG to cover his fascinating contact experiences. He is currently in the process of publishing a book on these experiences named 43. He promises a really interesting evening, hope to see you there. For further details see our Events & Lectures page.
Had an absolutely incredible time up at Stirling for the Scottish Paranormal Festival over the weekend. I gave a talk on UFOs & the music industry on the Saturday morning and ran a live UFO investigation desk between talks throughout the weekend. On Friday evening I, BUFOG member Adam and friend Ben enjoyed the fancy dress vampire ball at the venue. On the Saturday eve we headed out to Bonnybridge despite the dubious weather for a sky watch. The turn out was outstanding and famous councillor Billy Buchanan made an appearance, as well as numerous news crews. The many lectures over the three days were all superb and really interesting. A special thanks to the festival organisers Peter Broughan and Nick Kyle who were both extremely welcoming and helped the weekend go so smoothly. Check out the many photographs I've just uploaded to see what you missed! I'll be giving a more detailed write up in the next issue of UFO Truth Magazine - BUFOG Chairman Dave
On Saturday morning BUFOG's Chairman will be talking at the Scottish Paranormal Festival in Stirling, going over UFO themed bands and musicians who have had their own experiences. He will also be co-hosting a sky watch at known UFO hotspot Bonnybridge on Sat evening. The festival is set to be a really fun three days, including loads of great lectures, a vampire ball, horror film festival and all round spookiness! Look out for some pics next week and if you happen to be up that neck of the woods see if you can come along.
Unfortunately Shaun Coates from Esoteria, who was billed to talk next month, has had to put his lecture on hold until January 2015. In his place BUFOG will be welcoming Mike Smith to give a talk on his life long contact experiences. This is set to take place on Thursday 20th November. Mike is currently publishing a book on his experiences and assures me he has some incredible stuff to share! For full details see our Events & Lectures page here
