Just wondered if there was anywhere to get food & drink on the day or we need to bring something along. Really looking forward to the day.

You've got a thonking great Tescos next door which technically is Elstree Studios too - the fish department in there now was once the Ewok village also on the way up from the Station theres one or two newsagents

The TWO Greatest Fanboy moments for me was meeting Mr. Spielberg on the 8th of January 2012 and Kermit the Frog on the 13th of June 2012- please don't ask me which was my favourite meeting as it would be too difficult to choose. :)

I dont know what facilities there are inside the studios but as KingRichard76 says, there's a massive Tesco next door, McDonalds opposite and lots of other pubs, cafes and shops very close by.

Oh, thats not good - you should state to her exactly the significance of the fish counter and to quote Warwick Davis:

"Labyrinth was shot at Elstree, on one of the Stages used in Jedi. Now its all gone and a Tesco stands in its place (some would say that's another empire to be fearful of). The Ewok Village set once stood right where the fish counter is today."

I'm quite sure that those working at Tescos or other customers must be quite accustomed (possibly) to people taking photos in the Fish dept, when I went up there a few years back I proudly stood in front of the "George Lucas" Stage and practically leapt on some poor unsuspecting shopper outside and asked him if he could take my picture in Tescos car park

The studios are not a dedicated event venue, it's a working film studio, therefore the facilities available are not the same as if they were organising LFCC or EMS. The studios are still being used this weekend for filming, for example on The Voice, so you can't really compare it with any other kind of event where they hire the entire place. And personally I would assume there aren't catering facilities available to the public within the studios, TV shows and film crews usually have their own catering. There are loads of places to eat within a couple of minutes walk of the event.

Funny how some of the people complaining about the organisation only have a few posts. Have they been to other events as there is no less information about this event than there is for LFCC or collectormania.

Just love the fact you mention my OTHER favourite Film series/Fandom that was made at Elstree (and one of the other reasons why I am so excited about coming.

Need to do some research to see what scenes in the Indy universe were shot on Stage 7 (will give me even more of a reason to be on geekgasm overload)

And being in the Studio bar? "Wow" was the first words out of my mouth and the rest I wont repeat on here but quoted you on twitter in a reply :) But being in the Studio bar where the likes of Lucas/Spielberg/Ford/Kubrick/Nicholson must have drank is friggin awesome.

Its really nice to hear even more background to this all. That must have been quite a cool time for you - I mean to actually work at Elstree.

Thank you for sharing this :)
