  7. any guests?

    Good luck with the new event. Nice to see showmasters going into new areas.I travel to london but i know many people who just won't or can't go to london for many reasons.Not tempted to come to Doncaster ae the moment if theres no guests for autographs. obviously you can't mention any individual names you might be talking too but with the event just a couple of weeks away will there be anybody there? some of us have to book time off work or its better on trains to book in advance. same too for Cheshunt event. I know its only a small event but its needs somebody of interest as the stall holders are usually the same people again and again.
  8. Guest cancellation - Charlotte Hope

    my only reason for attending. glad i waited until todays pay day to see if it was worth traveling. its not worth planning ahead with these smaller shows because of the line ups and cancelations. at least i didn't fork out for a train ticket.
  9. General impression on Saturday.

    It was o.k but not really enough to do. Took 40 minutes to do the one guest i needed and then browse a couple of stalls i was interested in. And that was it. I should have known better but never been to Sheffield before and thought it would be a little busier.I also had food and drink they tried to take off me. Absolutely nothing to do with security despite their daft claims. Its simply to force people to buy their overpriced food within the venue. Nobody is fooled by these sort of claims any more.Most venues don't enforce these rules even if they have it in black and white on their website , as they know it causes ill will .Normally i don't take food to venues as i use local shops like the ones outside the Olympia but i didn't know the sheffield area so took my own to save time.None of these security people ( if you can even call them that) have the knowledge on how to spot something thats possibly dangerous due to a lack of proper training and half hearted bag searches. On my way home i realised in the smaller bag i still had some of my work stuff in the bag from the previous day including a knife i use for cutting cardboard.I came out in a rush as i got up late.The woman who checked my bags didn't bother with the smaller one ( missing the knife) and the larger bag has a false bottom and some side pockets none of which were checked ( because she wanted to make a big thing about no food which was placed on top of my big bag) making the whole thing completely pointless and just a gesture.They missed the knife but got the sausage roll! obviously the food and drink thing not an issue for showmasters ( or the venues poor token security) as you just hire the venue and no control over the local staff but showmasters could pass on peoples complaints. If the venue risk losing a booking over bad feedback they might change their greed. If other venues like Olympia and the NEC can do it when they are so much busier then they can too.These venues have no outside food and drink on their website too but they seem to accept its not really enforceable so they ignore it and use a bit of common sense.Anyway i just stepped aside in Sheffield and ate my food in front of them.

  16. Benedict Cumberbatch Appreciation Thread

    considering how busy and popular he was i was taken aback by how friendly he was. can't be easy keeping that going especially some of the odd characters he had to endure ( one japanese girl literally screaming into his face at the photoshoot !). but he was great. welcome back anytime.
  17. Dan Fogler appreciation

    he was so nice. for me the best thing about the con. i only found out he was there a couple of days before. got my fantastic beasts poster signed ,a photo with and a funko pop signed. all for 15 quid. bargain. .
  18. Latest Guest Announcement - ANTON LESSER

    brilliant, i need him in my GOT book.

    very sad news to hear he has passed away. i never met him but heard many good things about him from people who did. Very fine actor with a long sucessfull career. He'll be remembered with affection.
  20. In the future at showmasters events in the interest of fairness to other customers the desk helpers with guests or those taking cash payments before you reach the desks should take VT tickets from customers to prevent them being used again and again. I did notice throughout the 3 days VT tickets weren't being taken and as usual some of them got reused several times. Nobody took mine at any time, staff looked at them when i joined the back of the queue but never took them. My friend who had a very high number for David Bradley was given a low number by his mate which allowed him to jump into the queue when he only turned up at lunchtime. Another had a number of over 200 for Mark Williams but got handed one from another friend who had gone through in the first few minutes for something in the very low teens. which obviously meant he walked up into the autograph queue ahead of dozens of others who had got to his VT queue much later than him. Not really fair as some people missed out on getting things signed. Its no wonder some of the boards showing numbers being called hardly ever seem to change. I know of one group of people who used the same ticket 4 times throughout the day for Wil Wheaton !!! I know the staff have lots to do but it takes a second to just take the ticket when you go though. stops the reusing of the same ticket.
  21. What guests do you want to see next year?
