A word to the wise, if you're heading down there on Sunday, make sure you get there as early as humanly possible. For a myriad of reasons I didn't get there today until 12, but have gone home without having met him, which is pretty disappointing.
As a guideline, he went through 130 tickets today.
Yep, agree get there early.
I too arrived about 12 into the actual event after Leslie's photoshoot, but at first I couldnt even find his table for a good half hour as was looking for his picture on a table and with my bad eyesight, I just couldnt find him until someone pointed his table out, then a whiteboard with his name. It took me even longer to realise he was on a VT queue system, and by that time I got number..135!!!
I waited around all afternoon, I thought id see him easy with that number so bought an 8x10 for him to sign, paid by credit card for a £25 autograph voucher, and waited more..Even though he was the only one I went for, I did end up meeting two others as I had the time.
They then closed his queue just before 15:30 at number 130 for his talk, and said he'd be back after. Went to find something to do for an hour, then went back just before 16:30 to see if people were queing yet, only to find written on the notice board "Closed: Back tomorrow!"
I was only there for today as I have to work all day tomorrow, alas I never managed to meet him for an in person autograph
I did see Jason at the show about this and even he thought that Leslie would be back after the talk, but anyway its being sorted so I still can get an autograph, however its not quite the same as in person

But sorry, this had to go.

Might be worth getting a photo shoot ticket, he was shaking hands and joking around in them which is why it took longer.
Agreed! I arrived at the hotel at 11:30 which was better than I expected, so on a whim I decided to go for a photoshoot. Glad I did now otherwise I wouldnt have met him at all
He was great in the photoroom though.
