    A Brighton Resident

    thanks for the info most useful. Have to say when I saw Brighton as a venue I wondered on parking too, I went there last year for a weekend and it was nightmare to park there just isn't any around I think it was £25 a day in the ones I could find which is expensive and you had to book way in advance to get a place. A couple of the hotels had a couple of spaces but then its just the meters along the front I could see, I got a friend to drop us in the end as it was too much trouble but even drop offs restricted, was told one of the worst places in the uk for parking by a resident. This is what is putting me off going. I wanted to pop down for a couple of hours but need to get home by a certain time, we have no train in my village anyway so do you know where the car parks are nearby and what the current costs are as I could only find one way out of the town when I looked? many thanks

    Dates are the same as SDCC....

    Yes, the week before was fine, new date less so we're into high summer its expensive in London. When the 23rd was confirmed I and others booked hotels & never expected a date change. To change this will cost £69 more which makes it an expensive day out and I cant afford to do that, i'll lose £100 if I don't go to London the week before but I cant afford both & wont book a hotel again!. Its been very disappointing this year, have been caught out with 3 changes, I try and book early to save but SM keep changing dates and with Hallowhedon cancellation too its not been very good. I didn't really get the whole thing with SDCC, SM should have known about this when they confirmed dates this said I'm not sure not the whole of Hollywood attends do they?,maybe cast of the latest show who may be contracted to promos but if that's all that's going to be invited to LFCC from now on then it wont be for me. We used to have a mixture of guests to suit all age ranges and tastes. I thought last year was very much one sided, ok you had the BTTF franchise if you could afford to see the top guests or into the films, but was the first year there was nobody for me and a few of my friends felt the same. I don't have sky or Netflix so not looking for the guests to all be current. Used to love LFCC when it was at EC, had a wander saw a few guests then went for drinks and dinner etc but with the massive overcrowding and chaos this year will wait to see the line up before I buy a ticket and will be last minute.

    Guest Suggestions

    David Duchovny has just done a con this last weekend so is there any hope he was too scared and can come to the UK? Would also like to see Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher Phil Glenister and Keeley Hawes Gillian Anderson Cybill Shepherd Linda Hamilton, Ron Perlman Fred Dryer,Stephanie Kramer Tyne Daly, Sharon Gless William Shatner,James Darren,Adrian Zmed, Heather Locklear (though don't think she'll do them) As there is no more Hallowhedon any of the Buffy/Angel cast - especially Alyson Hannigan, Seth Green and David Boreanaz
  4. I think all the hotels around Olympia are onto a good thing with this latest date change, the Hilton was a good deal at £100 and top of my price range but now asking another £70 for the following week which not sure I am willing to pay for a day out. hmmm...
  5. Thanks TerraHawk I will phone the hotel direct tomorrow its the Hilton though and the price is a lot more for the week after. I was lucky early in the year with the move from Cardiff and they did refund me or this would have been the 3rd time this year as lost out on the Winter one too and wont be going at all now. Most of the hotels around Olympia seem to be non refundable now I did try for a free canx one but they don't seem to exist anymore.I've been very unlucky this year but don't have the money to keep losing like this.

    Hotels

    Not impressed, the Hilton was a good deal for the 23rd now want an extra £69 to change a week, I wont be doing it.
  7. So the date has changed? I & probably many others have a non refundable hotel so that's another £120 gone, not impressed.. First the Brighton one now this, its not very good this keeps happening. I for one wont be booking any more hotels or tickets for anything until the last minute again as cant afford to lose the money.

    Nick Hopkins (franks Autophgraphs) RIP

    Really sad to hear the news Nick was lovely, would always seek him out at events for a chat and he was always no nice and helpful. Will be missed.

    Hotels

    A lot of people have gone and booked hotels before the prices went up and these are non refundable. Some hotels are really expensive but if you shop about you can get some good deals but best to book sooner rather than later when they go thru the roof.

    Hallowhedon 7 Cancellation

    Really sad to have this confirmed but cant help but feel like Daniel and others that there was little effort made this year to encourage sales. The fans were here but were awaiting updates and hotel codes after last year which unfortunately never came. I have loved all 6 of these events and will be very sad not to be going this year, it feels like the end of an era but some great memories.
  11. I love Brighton but too far to go unfortunately, so glad I saw this first as was about to book tickets today.Parking is a mare in Brighton too went last year for a weekend its only street parking along the front and little at that from what I saw? I do feel sorry for those who have pre-booked hotels. I cancelled Cardiff this year but I called the hotel direct and they refunded me although it was a non refundable hotel so always worth asking the hotel direct even if you book through a 3rd party. Also If your planning to go to LFCC in the summer and likely to re-use the venue see if you can change the dates as some may let you do this. Worth a go anyway. Good luck!

    Hotel Code?

    I was in the area today & mentioned to the hotel we were coming to this event at HW but they tell me they couldn't find a booking for that weekend which I was surprised to hear as surely the reservation was made last year?. ME can you let us know what's going on, is this a mistake, or is this not going ahead in which case can we be informed as I am sure people need to sort their travel plans now as its getting very late.? Many thanks

    Hotels

    Looked at Earls court Ibis but as they are knocking everything down round there thought would stay around Olympia, some of the prices are extortionate even for the small rooms. Eventually booked the Hilton Olympia as Hotels.com doing a deal right now for £106 for the Saturday night less than 1/3 of normal price only drawback is you have to pay now but I guess prices are going up not down and wont be able to afford a room if any left next year.

    35th Anniversary of DYNASTY - CAST REUNION

    I would love to see Heather and know the "boys" did a T J Hooker con recently in the US. I hear she is actually pretty shy in real life and not aware she has ever done a signing event I know of but I have to say she would def be on my list to meet but not sure she would like the crowds too much. Although I hear she never refuses to sign things for fans when out and about she is very friendly. would love to see the other guys from Dynasty too. I think we need more peeps from older TV shows and not just the current stuff.

    Dates are the same as SDCC....

    Personally speaking I would not like to see LFCC change to only having guests from current shows anyway, other events in the US cover from 70s-current but i did feel this year there were not that many of those for us and I know a lot of people who did not attend for that reason. Aside from the BTTF franchise there were no tv stars from any older shows there at all this time. I do hope there will be a different mix for next years LFCC to cater for all fans not just those of the latest hit as not everyone has access to sky/Netflix. SDCC may be massive but its not like there is a shortage of guests to invite from Hollywood - there are plenty of stars to go round.
