Open Ceremony - what time?

Recommended Posts

Hi, tried to ask Too Tall by PN, but I'm not allowed to send PN :(

 

I'd like to plan my trip to Northampton but I'm not sure which plane I should take. I will fly by BA coz the flight schedule of EasyJet is driving me insane. :blush:

 

So, I don't want to be too early but don't want to be too late neither :WAVE:

Will the opening ceremony take place at quite the same time as at the Chevron 7.2 (around 7pm)?

Yes, 7pm is very likely, as it was the same at the Twilight con last weekend too :blush:

Thanks so much! I will arrive in Heathrow at 1.15pm. I think, I will make it to Northampton until 7pm *laugh*

Forgive my noobness, since I've never attended a Showmaster con before, but will there be any events on Friday before the opening ceremony? In short, if I arrived on the Friday only in time for the OC, would I be missing out on anything? I'm puzzling over train times as well, and if I need to be there early on the Friday, I might as well come down on Thursday night...

 

Thanks.

You have to be registered on the Friday by 5PM I THINK (cant remember if it was 5 or 6) but other than that nothing really happens. Registration opens at 1-ish and the dealers room is open, and then the Opening ceremony is at 7. that's how it worked at ET anyway so i doubt they'll have any events on on the Friday here either, just bear in mind that registration closes around 5/6ish.

Registration closes at 5pm? Really? I'm working until 5pm :( Albeit 5 mins down the road...didn't want to take the whole day off

Could be 6, it def. closes before the opening ceremony though.

 

I have a plan...finish 15 mins early and run! :( Then go home and come back down in time for opening ceremony. Hopefully it's 6 though!

If you miss it you can register on Saturday, downside being that you miss teh opening ceremony/Friday Night party :(

I search the schedule of Chevron 7.2 and the registration closed on 9pm approx. on Friday (so it was after the closing ceremony). I don't know, if this is alway so, but I guess, they know, that a lot of people had to work or to travel.

Another question: I know that the schedule won't have been finalised yet, but what time is the event likely to finish on the Sunday night?

 

I'm now trying to book a homeward train and wouldn't want to leave too early and miss anything. I'm not really bothered about staying until the end of the party 'cause I'm not that into dancing, I'm thinking mainly of the closing ceremony itself.

The closing ceremony will end around 6pm based on other events.
