    Free Talks Announced!

    As taken from the website, a reminder of how the talks operate. No tickets are required, please go straight to the talk area prior to the talk. The talk crew can answer any questions you have in that area. FREE GUEST TALKS We have a large number of free guest talks running throughout the weekend. Although these are free, seating is limited, seating is issued on a first come first served basis. Gold Pass Holders will be given priority access to the talk hall in order to take advantage of their priority seating, however once the talk has started you will be expected to take the closest available seat with no priority given. Free Talks are approx 25 minutes long, with 5 minute gaps to change over audiences. We would ask that you keep the exit clear to allow other fans to enter and exit the talk area as quickly and easily as possible. Audiences will be asked to leave the seated area after each talk finishes, even if they have tickets for the next talk. We would ask that you limit flash photography to the first few minutes of the talk - photographs taken without flash are permitted throughout. We’re afraid that videoing and sound recordings are not allowed.

    Layout map

    Generally since the event has began the guests signing tables and the dealers have been on the ground floor. Then photographs and gaming are on the first floor, with talks and cosplay on the second floor. There are lifts in two of the corners (on the left hand side as you enter the hall) that can be used. I trust this helps. But anything different on the day will be signposted.
  6. For those asking about the Prisoner of Azkaban prop shoot, this is an example from when Sam Coleman had his taken last year in Newcastle. He uploaded it to Instagram. Do bear in mind that he had two photos taken and then performed his own video edit after https://www.instagram.com/p/BNF3jg_DrBK/?taken-by=samcolemanactor&hl=en

    Cardiff Schedule Announced

    The image should be similar to this - with you holding the sign and everything else printed out around you. It was first done at Newcastle last year and Sam Coleman from Game of Thrones had 2 shots taken. He made a video edit out of them here https://www.instagram.com/p/BNF3jg_DrBK/?taken-by=samcolemanactor&hl=en

    late and injured

    Hi there, you will find the queues for pre-paid tickets versus buying on the day are usually labelled clearly when you arrive at the show. If in any doubt ask the crew members who will be wearing blue or red tshirts with showmasters printed on. Having a cane is obviously absolutely fine. I usually have my own walking stick but I'm not crewing the show this year. There is a ramp at the front if you need to use it. There are also 2 sets of lifts in the top left and bottom left as you stand looking into the hall. These will help you get to any of the floors you need to access through the show. You don't say what your injury is, but if you are struggling do mention it if you need a seat to queue for photos etc.

    My apologies

    Glad to hear they were caught! Hope the healing is going well and you're looking forward to the weekend.

    Floor plans please

    Generally previous years are as follows: Guests / dealers / prop shoot on the ground floor (the prop shoot is usually in the entrance foyer so you might see this on the way in) Photoshoots and retro/board gaming on the first floor Talks and Cosplay on the second floor
  11. Darn it. I was going to budget for Christopher at this show after not getting him at a previous one. Another time :)

    First ever con

    Sean was absolutely lovely in Sheffield. You'll have a great time meeting him At that show he did a Hellraiser talk with Claire. Do make sure you think of some questions to ask as that makes the talk a more personal experience to you and may also be things that others are too shy to participate in.

    Guinness World Record Attempt

    I remember at the first one in 2012 when we broke the record, but it has been attempted since and we didn't beat it. I remember it too as I was crewing both years. Even I wouldn't mind properly participating in costume this time around. I haven't quite got the legs but tights were made for that
