It seems as though there are a lot of people beaming in on their own, I am meeting up with a friend there and feel as though I already know so many more just through chatting on the Facebook groups and on here. I have been to lots of conventions before, so I would just to say to anyone who is trying it for the first time - just enjoy yourself, have fun and don't feel afraid to go and talk to other fans. I felt just the same the first time I went to one (on my own) and loved it.

Anyone new to cons will find that just by waiting in queues you will get chatting to people and find a group to hang out with - I went to my first con with a mate, and actually made more friends on my own as I was forced to make more effort. I now attend every con by myself and meet up with people when I get there. Plus there's so much going on at these events that you are unlikely to feel like a loner! You will spot fellow con goers as soon as you get there so don't worry! :-)

I am coming down for the w/e from the NW of England and I am staying at the Premiere Inn in Beckton. I was thinking of taking the train, but if anyone else from - shall we say the Lancs/Cheshire area (not going to be too specific on a public forum) - would be willing to tolerate a non-driver accompanying them, I'd be happy to pay my share of petrol. Naturally, I'd come to you or meet you somewhere en route.

 

Have to say that I am not a Fb user nor do I intend to ever be so, so I would hope that those of you that are will remember to post things for the rest of us on the forums - thanks.

Sounds like a hoot, count me and my mate (who is a ringer for Picard, I'm more like a Gorn) in :)

 

Your friend looks like Picard you say............ I think pictures would be appropriate at this stage! :P;)
