I hardly think its a rip off. As its already been said, William Shatner's photoshoot is Â£35 and it is extremely rare for Patrick to do a photoshoot. I think its a been a few years since he has done one.
As for money, you aren't the only one who's struggling. I, myself, am a student who has minimal work hours in a PT job. I have still paid because, at the end of the day, you get something to keep and treasure forever. That, to me, is worth Â£35. And I have always found Showmasters' prices to be more than fair.
Im struggling too.... i only have a 60+ grand debt(not including mortgage by the way) but do i moan about a Â£35 TICKET........ like @@@@ i do
cheers showmasters youve just added to my debt
