    I think I know who you mean, I loved the jewellery too and took her business card. I'm not sure we're allowed to post details, but if you private message me I can send you her Facebook page. (I have tried to message you already but its saying I'm not allowed?)
  2. Totally agree with what's being said about the queuing for photos and autographs, particularly the more popular guests. On Sunday at shoot F, with Aidan Turner arriving late there were a lot of people standing around waiting - then the Jason Mamoa people started to arrive as well and were getting confused when they eventually started calling out "diamond passes" assuming it was for them. Same with the afternoon shoot, lots of people with late batch numbers crowding round and those of us with lower batch numbers that didn't get through in the AM session had to fight through. The girl shouting just couldn't be heard but the crowd did try to help with shouting. There needs to be tall signs that are clearly visible and regularly updated so people know exactly which batch is currently queuing and maybe move away to allow the early batch number space to get through. Maybe the more popular guests need to be in larger space? The queuing area on the balcony/gallery is too small and people are trying to get past to get to other areas as well. It did strike me that in some places, the stalls barely had anyone looking at them but had a lot of space whilst we were crammed into a small area to wait. Perhaps the ground floor could be used for photos etc and some of the stalls moved up onto the balcony?

    The “Thank You” Thread

    Shout out particularly to the guy at Photo F having to deal with all the Aidan Turner fans (and to the impromptu volunteer "Grim Reaper" who helped out by holding up bits of paper with the batch numbers on when the shouts of the crew just weren't being heard)

    Latest Guest Announcement - DAVID TENNANT

    Please please please try to get David for another event with a bit more warning! I was staying in a hotel last night when I saw the announcement, but couldn't get on the ticket site due to the terrible hotel wi-fi. I really hope after today he'll agree to more cons

    LATEST GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT - AIDAN TURNER

    Great guest! Wasn't going to bother with the London event this time but this announcement changed my mind!! Ticket and photo shoot booked :)

    Latest Guest Announcement - BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH

    I'm regular folk and I got his auto last time! I think what was meant that non- pass holders have the opportunity to get a personalised autograph and actually meet him. Last year he only did that for platinum and VIP. Gold passes got his autograph but it was included in your "goody" bag, it wasn't personalised and the only chance to meet him was the photo shoot.

    Sherlocked 2 and US event?

    The official Massive Events website have officially announced it. http://www.sherlocked.com/ The biggest criticism at the last event was the lack of communication. Massive Events have a mailing list from the previous event and were sending out emails saying an announcement was coming soon - last one was the Summer. They have facebook and twitter accounts as well which a lot of fans follow. Yet the only official announcement is a website.... how many people are actually checking that site on a regular basis when there hasn't been anything since the Summer? I would have hoped that they had learnt lessons from the last event, its not obvious so far that they have and that does concern me a little. It's not even listed as an event on this forum or on the Showmasters web site (Ok, yes its a holiday period, but why not back up the website posting using social media or wait until after the holiday period to make all announcements) As someone who had an absolute blast at the first event, I would love for this to be the same... but unless the organisers address the concerns and issues that were raised by a lot of people, it's only going to be good for those that can afford to pay for the expensive packages.

    Sherlocked 2 and US event?

    This has been tweeted by Sherlockology too.... shame we had to hear about it from a fansite and not the official organisers but hey, at least there's a date to start saving up for...
  9. That may be the case, but what about people who have already paid for hotels in London and booked transport? It's also more expensive. Many bus and train companies will do special rates for travel to London but not other places - Just checked and a return to London for me that weekend is £25. Return to Brighton £40 .... that's a difference of the cost of an autograph and when you're on a limited budget those kind of things matter. But of course, you guys don't really seem interested in those of us that only go for the basic tickets these days. Those that can afford to pay for the big packages won't mind paying a little extra for travel I suppose.
  10. The ExCel have a contract with another Con which means Showmasters can't host an event that is similar
  11. So how long before these are the only events Showmasters run and they become so expensive most of the "ordinary" folk who can''t really afford it will be priced out of attending altogether (or end up paying just to walk round a giant toy store because you can only actually get to meet any of the guests if you're willing to splash out on the expensive packages)

    Thanks for the response QS :)

    Sherlocked 2 and US event?

    Any news on these? We had an email some time ago saying that a second con and a US event would be announced shortly.... If there's not then fine, I appreciate these things take some co-ordinating especially when the cast are all actors that are very much in demand at the moment. However the last email did seem to suggest that there would have been an announcement made within a couple of weeks of the email.
  14. There was a girl beside me whilst we were queuing to go into the BTTF talk outside on Sunday. She was on her own and wanted to smoke. She asked if I would hold her place for her whilst she went across the road to smoke, which I was happy to do. Rather that than smell of her smoke for the rest of the day. I have no objection to people smoking - what you choose to put in your own body is your business - but smoking in an environment such as a queue where your smoke encroaches on other people and forces them to breathe in your smoke is not on. Have some consideration, move away from the queue and if you're on your own like this girl was, a simple polite request to hold their place would be gratefully received by non smokers around them.

    ANSWERS to FAQs

    All well and good, but the two I have added my feedback to have now disappeared.... sorry, been "hidden".
