Aww thats a shame. Always liked Friday coz it was quieter and you could look round without any stress. But if its not good for you guys then, hey, what are we to do!

A bit late notice for those of us who have booked rooms for the Friday on the basis of Friday being day 1.

 

Poor form, following on from the farce of the Olympia cancellation earlier this year.

 

Hardly living up to the boast that 2011 would be bigger and better than 2010.....

Meh, I have the night booked friday. But I didnt get there till like 2 hours before the show closed last year anyway and didnt meet any guests.

 

I'd of stayed friday night anyway like I do for LFCC, means I can get downstairs straight away in the morning :)

 

Thanks for the update SM :WINCE:

I too would end up going up the night before because of the distance.

 

I think the guests booked for this show are fantastic, am really looking forward to it :WINCE:

 

Perhaps very few guests are able to attend on the Friday? It is usually a very quiet day anyway. I love the hustle and bustle of the busier days best :P

Yeah after what I saw last year on the friday, I wouldnt open business-wise.

 

And yeah distance and travel made me book for the friday night, not the actual friday event (sorry SM lol)

I like the Saturdays, always a buzz on the busier days :)

 

Plus, it makes me stay later :)

I've only ever popped in for an hour or so on Fridays and it's always really quiet, usually seem to be more crew than attendees so I can see why it's not starting until Saturday this year.

 

Got a feeling it's going to be great weekend.

That's a pity, I always liked getting autographs on the Friday, made sure it left you more time later in the weekend and also gave more time with the stars on that day as well.

 

I first went to MK two years ago and after a farcical attempt by me and my uncle to get a photo with John De Lancie at his table (the camera wouldn't work) he later came up to us in the stadium, asked if I would like another picture and happily posed for one - this kind of thing wouldn't happen on the busier days. And as my first big con, it was a wonderful experience! :o

Good job this was announced now!

My group and I have been trying to decide if to book a thursday night in mk at extra cost, or just go down on the friday, guess this settles it now!

I take it this means the free bus will not be running to the stadium on the Friday then, does anyone know what is the easiest way to get to the stadium if this is so as I am staying at the hotel there on the Friday and have only ever caught the free bus.

I know that but it is quite a distance and I expect it would be expensive lol what I meant was is there a paid bus service that goes to the stadium instead? sorry for not being clear

That bus above stops on grafton street, which runs by the stadium.

My girlfriend arrived later on the friday last time, after the bus had stopped. Her taxi from the station cost around a tenner I think. Not too much, especially for more than one person.

With most o fthe 'big' guests there all three days, it's not looking like one particular day will be mega busy yet, of course future guest announcements may change things :blush:

 

Still look slike just Monday for me at the moment.

 

But agree that it's probably wise to ditch the friday if no guests are gonna be there.

Pity. Guess there's valid reasons but I always like going on the Friday. It's much more relaxed, you often have longer to chat to the guests, more likely to get a photo and the dealer area isn't so packed you can't see anything. Then I go back on saturday to meet the few people not there on the friday but do hate having to battle my way around the crowds and big queues. Oh well.

I understand the reasons why Friday has been scratched but I'm still gutted cause we already made our arrangements and booked hotel to be there from Thursday ready for the long weekend and I've already booked leave for the week to be able to take Thurs,Fri,Sat and Sun off in the same week :blush: maybe I can change it... *fingers crossed*!!! we usually go on Thursday and hang out and chill before the busy weekend :clap:

 

oh well still gunna be an awesome weekend :YAHOO:

Received a movie magazine today and on the ad, Friday appears.
No surprise there. Magazine adverts are usually submitted and finalized long before they go to actual print. Which is why you see adverts that contain guests that have long since cancelled, and sometimes even guests that were never announced.

We went last year on the Friday and was really quiet, busy wise I'd guess it makes way more sense!
