  1. In case anyone is just following this thread, the news is that this weekend's event has just been cancelled. A shame, but in light of recent events, sensible.
  2. Yes, today's official forum post, also on Facebook, confirms this weekend's event is still scheduled to take place - just don't go along if you have a cough, a high temperature, muscle pains, or are old enough for the government to be advising self-isolation. Travelling by London Underground shouldn't be a problem, as the carriages are likely to be far less crowded than usual, and if you plan to drive in, the chances are that there will be more parking spaces empty than usual. Time to stock up on some good vintage (or new) reading, to keep us going for a while!
  3. Posted today by Showmasters on Facebook:
  4. The weather seems to have calmed down a bit - I'm sure the dealers will be very glad to see us!
  5. I can report that the Royal National Hotel is now back to normal, so there shouldn't be any problems with this coming Sunday's event. There should be lots of new stuff to buy!
  6. Yes, we'll be back at the Royal National Hotel on December 1st - it will be interesting to see what changes have been made to the place. I intend to go along to a paperbacks 'n' pulps event there this coming Sunday (nothing to do with Showmasters), so will report further if there are any delays or problems.
  7. The dates for the London Comic Mart in 2020 have now been announced: 21st June 16th August 4th October 6th December Updated: 20th March in light of COVID-19 situation. As usual, admission to these events at the Royal National Hotel is free from noon - "Early Bird Entry" from eleven o'clock costs £5, if you want to snap up some swift bargains... though not every table may be fully open for business then. You may want to check the http://londoncomicmart.co.uk website for any last-minute updates, or further details. The Royal National Hotel is within easy walking distance of Russell Square underground station, and not all that far from Euston and King's Cross main line stations, come to that. The official closing time is 4:00pm, or when the dealers run out of stuff to sell. We'll continue to have our Funko Pop friends alongside us, and of course it's a great opportunity to pick up some hard-to-find dvds, blu-rays, and books at bargain prices too...
  8. … And I've just edited the original post here. To quote today's Facebook post:
  9. In case you are following this thread, I should mention that the October 6th Comic Mart can't take place at the Royal National Hotel, as they are having ongoing refurbishment/repair work done there. Instead, while the date stays the same, we've been relocated to The Pillar Hall over at Olympia, just a couple of minutes from the Underground station. The hotel should be back to normal in time for the December event! http://londoncomicmart.co.uk/
  10. It's a joint event now - still with all our favourite comics dealers, but with added tables full of Funko Pops, for all the upcoming dates. Judging by the most recent mart, there are some rare Funko Pops, and some good multibuy deals to look for too... but the comics side hasn't been cut back. Hopefully people who come for the Funko Pops will be tempted to buy some comics, books, dvds etc while they are in the Galleon Suite.
  11. The dates for all of 2019 have now been announced: Sunday 17th February Sunday 7th April Sunday 12th May Sunday 23rd June Sunday 18th August Sunday 6th October - cancelled Sunday 1st December As usual, admission to these events at the Royal National Hotel is free from noon - "Early Bird Entry" from eleven o'clock costs £5, if you want to snap up some swift bargains... though not every table is fully open for business then.

  12. Showmasters have released the schedule for 2018 now: 4th February 6th May 1st July 2nd September 7th October 4th November 2nd December So, a busier year than 2017. As usual, admission to these events at the Royal National Hotel is free from noon - "Early Bird Entry" from eleven o'clock costs £5, if you want to snap up some swift bargains... though not every table is fully open for business then.

  13. There are some people who do sell trading cards, so hopefully they will be open to making a deal, if you have some cards they like, in suitably mint condition.
  14. The list of marts above has been updated - things may get revised again, but the 5th March date has been cancelled, and the April mart is now three weeks later than originally planned, which does at least cut down the gap between that mart and the July one. The 3rd December mart date has been removed, too.
  15. Mike Conroy has now announced the 2017 dates for our marts at the Royal National Hotel; the good news is that we are back to the first Sunday in the month, but, as Mike says, "Please note that we are currently only planning seven marts for next year." April 23rd July 2nd September 3rd October 1st November 5th As usual, admission to these events at the Royal National Hotel is FREE from noon - "Early Bird Entry" from eleven o'clock costs £5, if you want to snap up some swift bargains... though not every table is open for business then.
