  1. Thanks for replying so quick. It's just what I was looking for. Love x
  2. Hi guys Mom wants me to get a taxi from Euston to the Olympia on Friday afternoon and was wondering if anyone wanted to share. Bestest Samantha
  3. Hi I'm coming from Wolverhampton to Euston on the Friday and was wondering if anyone could help in the best way to get from Euston to the venue. Also if anyone wants to meet up. Thanks in advance...
  4. Something that strikes me when I read through these posts at how bad this was and how badly run or bad staff or any other thing they can moan about. Maybe I'm missing the point somewhere and missed the point where people were dragged there kicking and screaming and/or forced to being there. If you (the general public) aren't happy with anything just dont go. Yes it is, and can be a lot of money but again you're not forced to spend your money and also without fans contributing to the cost of these cons they just wouldn't happen. I'm sure it would probably shock you if you actually knew h
  5. One of my favourites this year was from William Forsyth when I went to get his autograph at a time when he was just sitting around and showed him some of the pics I'd taken when I was out there. (he was amazed that I'd done them) anyway he wrote 'So happy not to spend a night on there with you, love and hugs. We stood for ages chatting about The Rock stuff telling me what happened here and there with different actors during filming and that they had the premiere actually on there in the library. A true gent. Hard to think that that film is 20 years old next year...jeez...
  6. Personally I think that it's up to the person what they want to wear at their own peril. Anyone who wants to do a con in high heels I take my hat off to them because they can't be the easiest to spend all day on.. .. or the most comfiest...
  7. They were definitely being sold on Saturday as I was helping sell them at the Organisers Desk. NB. You weren't being forced to buy one, you weren't being dragged there in handcuffs to make you buy one so why complain, and you could flick through one to see what was inside before you bought one. To be honest, in my opinion, they were very good quality and very thick with quite a few pages of 6 pages of Wes Craven (Freddie), 2 pages of Man from UNCLE, loads about Slasher movies, 7 pages of BACK TO THE FUTURE which included big pictures from the film inc a bit called Marty the Martyr, 8
  8. Like I said, I can't speak about what happened on other days, only on Sunday when I was on. Maybe Sunday we were more vigilant, I really don't know and so I'm not at liberty to comment on.
  9. They'd still have had to check them when they came inside to make sure they'd been scanned, if you think about it. Also there wouldn't be enough space for 100's and they don't have that many volunteers to spare. Anyway, I'm not here to argue etc, I just wanted to make the response in defence of LFCC.
  10. I rarely post but I felt I had to put this.. where a lot of the comments I can't/won't address I thought I would say this. In comment : Quote 3. Address venue entrance security. Particularly later in the day(s), I'm 100% sure that all people weren't being screened as they entered the venue. Consequently, I'm certain that many who hadn't even bought a ticket were able to just walk in, and wouldn't have been factored into SM's calculations for venue capacity etc. This only compounded the issues. Also in the previous post 1) Queue to get in. There needs to be 100s of people wa
  11. My one treat or the weekend from me to me for my birthday (19th) was to buy myself the money boxes, the 2015 set. I agree that I thought they'd go really quicky so was really surprised to see them available on the Sunday... I got numbers 113 of 1000 for Doc and 149 for Marty then got Christopher Lloyd to sign it.
  12. I can understand what you mean with not having an obvious disability like a wheelchair for example. Having epilepsy for example I get the same response from general public, sometimes making you feel that you have to show your medical certificate to prove it each time. (this is a general comment not just cons in general) (I also agree with Lesley where it is wrong to use items like wheelchairs inappropriately).
  13. Yes. This. Not only does it make your day easier but the crew will like you more if you give them £5 notes. I'll be on the crew's good list, I specifically went to my bank today to take a load of cash and requested it in £5 notes! I start hoarding £5 notes for about two weeks before any con. This way I can pay for things I want and make very busy crew members happy by paying £15 in £5 notes. ALL OF THE CHANGE. I did the same thing last year, because I was in England for a week before the Con. This year, however, I will be coming directly from Greece, so I hope the currency exchange at
  14. I've done a lot of cons, even organising one, and I've yet to come across an actor who hasn't felt disappointed if not upset they can't meet their fans. They have as much fun doing them as we do. Also even if you don't get any guests to meet etc there's always new things, loads of stalls, loads to do. I found about 90% of my friends at conventions and it's great to meet up (and a great excuse to go to them too)
  15. I keep trying to put it across on other threads to give them chance but thanks for doing this. I sometimes think that if things get too heated and anger etc is pointed at them it's frustrating. Sure it's a shame that some actors have had to cancel. One actor is in the process of filming two things and in pre production of another and unfortunately work has to come first and if you think about it if they didn't they wouldn't be in the position of being so wellknown etc. There's a lot of actors that only go to SM because they're treated so well so without SM you wouldn't get to meet them
  16. At some hotels around the area they have cashpoints in the hotels and/or fairly close by.
  17. SM : Amazing and incredible as always... thanks guys and to everyone involved from the big chiefs to volunteers...
  18. Just a quick bit... how about a defacing the entry ticket. Like for example when you go in get a red stamp of something, then when you go for your photo, for example, and you hand in your ticket you get your entry ticket stamped with a different colour, . That way no one can go back in or try and get in twice or three times etc. Like most people I agree with the resell version and going through SM only to make them valid. I have a photo booked for Bill Paxton when it should have been William Forsyth and I'd hate for someone to miss out just for my mistake in having that extra ticket but
  19. Hi This is the first time I've crewed with Showmasters and would love to meet up with others who are going to chat too... (I'll be at LFCC) Thanks in advance
  20. You have to remember that some buildings/arenas etc (not just Olympia) have safety numbers like, for example, only being able to have say 96,000 people or as few as say 100... so I'm sure that it's not Showmasters fault.
  21. Love to meet Ioan Gruffudd, Robert Lindsay, Sean Conery I think would be an ace guest... Robson Green who is supposedly a really nice guy.... Ant & Dec (been a fan since Byker Grove)... (trying to think of some not so obvious choices... there's just so many?)
  22. I know this won't go down with a few people but I do hope some of you agree with me. Don't get me wrong, I love MJF and have been a major fan of his for as long as I can remember but with the delay on tickets, please have a thought that it's real people (not robots) sorting out these conventions and getting us a lot of guests from a large variety of interests; not just actors but also authors & wrestlers to name just a few other. Maybe this is just what I feel but felt it needed to be said but please cut them some slack...
  23. So many have been really lovely but ones that really stick out for me are Jason Isaacs, Jamie Bamber, James Callis and especially Anthony Stewart Head...
  24. I would love it to be Alan Rickman, Jason Isaacs (met him a couple of times and he's so lovely and friendly), Jamie Bamber... Christian Cooke (who has been in some brilliant things like Demons to Witches of Eastwick even in Dr Who), Christian Slater, Ioan Gruffudd, Robert Lindsay...
