Where do i begin -some stories from today
People that got there for 9am early bird - didnt get until 90 minutes later.
People that got there for 11am entry who hadnt pre booked entrance tickets had a 3 to 4 hour wait. they were told at the start of the queue - but no more info whilst queuing - people were going to the front entrance to enquire about times - there was no one monitoring the queue - people were on their own.
i over heard that someone had a 1:30pm photo shoot and was told the night before when they booked the ticket that if they got there for 11am they would be okay getting in. So they were given misinformation. They went twice to the front entrance today as they knew that if the queue was 3-4 hours long they wouldnt get in for the 1:30pm shoot. No one could help them.- not sure if they gave up and went home. they certainly couldnt get a refund today.
Around 12:30pm the outside queue for general tickets stopped - no info given - it was only when someone from the line went to the front entrance to enquire that they were told that earls court had reached capacity.
Question for Showmasters: at 11am you had volunteers telling people about the 3-4 hour wait. that takes the time to 3pm - by this time most fo the photoshoots and autographs tickets would have been sold out for that day - so what would people do when they got there? Wade through the crowds to look at some merch/autograph stalls??? How greedy can you be - instead of informing people you let them queue.
Someone queued for four hours to see Sherilyn Fenn only to see that her name was scrubbed off the boards - the volunteers wasnt sure as to what happened there.
for the 'lucky' people that got in - earls court was dangerously busy- i am sure that showmasters were getting very close to violating health and safety codes. if there would have been a fire - forget it. people either would have been crushed or burnt to death.
queue for photos, queue for toliets, queue for food, queue, queue, queue.
I was speaking to various people and not one person said that they were enjoying it.
How is this enjoyable for people? Even for the gold pass people - they still had to wade through the crowds.
In the photo queues - chaos - there didnt seem to be enough volunteers, if at all and they were swamped.
it is obvious that Showmasters are just seeing the pound signs now - getting as many people crammed into earls court as possible.
Showmasters is not getting another penny of my money.
Shame on you.
