  1. Food and drink

    There’s a cafe in the basement you can go to. Of course lots of other places nearby. This is quite a low key event compared to larger similar events and I’ve never had the need to get here really early. I usually stroll in some time around 10:30am and get the autographs I need and can be out again within the hour, sometimes half an hour! Yes, Tom Baker will be popular, but he attended just over a year ago and I just joined the queue close to the time he was due to attend and saw him within the hour.
  2. That's fine. Just didn't really want the autographs without actually seeing the people albeit via the photo shoot.
  3. If we have pre-ordered autographs and now the people have cancelled, do I assume these orders will now be cancelled?
  4. Sorry, edited to say Saturday
  5. So, I have (among others) the following for Saturday: James & Oliver Phelps, Batch 1, 9:20-9:35 Ian McDiarmid, Batch 1, 9:30-10:00 Derek Jacobi, Batch 2, 9:30-10:15 Christopher Lloyd, Batch 3, 9:30-10:30 Benedict Cumberbatch, Diamond Pass, 9:45-11:45 How on earth am I going to be able to attend all these? With Benedict, as I have a Diamond Pass, do I assume I can go to his session after the others and, assuming all the other Diamond Pass people have gone through, go straight to the front of the queue, or will I have to join the back of the queue?
  6. Tickets are being posted out

    Thanks. Have just paid my postage
  7. Tickets are being posted out

    So can I be clear? You're saying I should just place another order which just contains the postage?
  8. Tickets are being posted out

    I ordered my entry ticket but forgot to add the postage. I assume, therefore, that I can just pick up my ticket from the door on the day? Or do I have to place another order with just the postage? Thanks.
  9. I'll only be coming on the Saturday, so will probably have a go at dragging myself up at some unearthly hour of the morning to make the most of the early bird! Thanks for the advice.
  10. This will be my first time attending this event and I was wondering if all the guests will be available to sign autographs from 9:15am? It's a long journey for me to get to the venue, and I don't really want to have to get up at the crack of dawn, and also pay extra for the early bird tickets, if the guests I want to see aren't going to be around until nearer to the standard entry time. Also, is it a lot quieter during the early bird entry period and so worth the extra money? Thanks for any advice.
  11. Free bus to venue

    Great, thanks.
  12. Free bus to venue

    I've never been to this show before, so was wondering which terminal I should get off the Piccadilly Line at. I see from the above link that there are free busses from both sets of terminals, but is one quicker/more reliable than the other? Thanks
  13. Agree with Goonie_Marky, Ariana Richards was my unexpected star of the show (although Dave Prowse came a close second being the perfect gentleman). Before the show, I was undecided about whether or not to see Ariana, but when I saw her sitting there waiting I thought 'why not'. She turned out to be a really lovely lady who seemed genuinely pleased to meet me. She told me she has been concentrating on her art work and, having looked at her web site, I've now discovered just how amazing an artist she is.
  14. What a difference from summer.

    Andrewrolar - hate to rub it in, but it is delicious, and the ginger marshmallow in particular was excellent! I think the problem with this show being quiet is that there are a lot of this kind of show around at the moment and so for a lot of people, they have to be picky as to which show to attend. I too felt sorry for a lot of the 'guests' who were just sitting there twiddling their thumbs when I was there. However, as a lot of them were from what I would call 'cult' shows as opposed to mainstream shows, I guess this is understandable. I did have a lovely chat, however, with Ariana Richards (Jurassic Park) who is now an artist and, having looked at her website, an excellent one at that!
