This has just been posted on the Showmasters Twitter:

 

 

All visitors report to the hanger deck/shuttle bay.

 

You don't need to see their identification... This isn't the Millennium Falcon you've been looking for.

The venues always look huge empty. Then you get 100 guests and agents, 230+ crew, 400 dealers, 50 venue staff, all the tables and chairs and THEN the 20,000 attendees and suddenly it's not so big.

 

Although talking to the guys there it is smegging huge.

 

Will be interesting to get in there and momentarily be blown away by just how massive it is, and then realise that theres more important stuff to do. This time I wont be taking it all in (the way I did on Stage 7) I get the feeling that it will be quite something and will compliment this event also.

Question what does VQ's mean?

 

It means virtual queue, you get a ticket and then come back when it's time for your no

VQ = Virtual Queue. Also known as VT (Virtual-queue ticket). It's showmasters' lovely system of making sure no one has to spend all day in a queue for one guest.

Will there be access to the balconies? I've exhibited in that hall before and it was great being able to walk around upstairs, usually less crowded.

I first saw the photo on my mobile. It reminded me more of Kirk's Enterprise's hanger deck than Death star's.

Thanks once again to TOO TALL

Just one question do you know if Bernard Cribbins will be open or VQ ?

Almost certainly VQ for the majority I would expect.

There are no Virtual Queue Tickets for anyone at all on Friday night, because there won't be enough attendees to merit them. But the guests who are there on Friday night probably won't all be in area 51 2 because they'll be set up for where they'll be on Sat and Sun, when they could be on Virtual Queue Tickets.

 

 

so whats in singing area 2, is that only the ground floor, is there an upstairs or anything?

 

I read elsewhere that the show is on one level.

It doesn't look very big? But then I'm guessing he photo doesn't capture most

 

I have just remembered I have been there! It was for pub show back in 2003 (and yes I got free alcohol all day!). The Grand Hall is definitely much larger than it appears there.

That photo shows the floor downstairs. The balcony is the first floor. At least that is how I remember it.
