Temperature in the venue

Recommended Posts

Can anyone advise from previous experience what Olympia is like temperature-wise?

 

Does it have air con or at least good ventilation?

 

It's been damn hot these past few days - can't imagine the mess we'd be in if it's this hot on the day!!

I've only been to events at Olympia in December so can't advise. It's got very high ceilings but not sure that's going to allow much air to circulate.

I hope it is cooler than last years at Earls Court!

 

To be honest, I'm not one to complain but I remember standing in the line for Stan Lees photoshoot and my goodness was it hot in there, people were using their photoshoot tickets as makeshift fans.

 

I was planning on cosplaying this year - but somehow wwith all those bodies in such a space I feel it wouldn't be right to :)

I'm going to be wearing a long velvet dress, so I sincerely hope it's not too hot. Then again, my default body temperature is cold (right this moment I'm sat here with a blanket on and it's about 28°) so I might be okay.

You should see me at work, we have a fan going behind the counter and I'm complaining that it's too cold. My boss tells me I'm crazy, then I make him touch my ice-cube hands and he shrieks because I'm basically a massive icicle. It's nuts.

showmasters could make SO much money if they had a stand just inside the entrance to the venue selling those little battery powered hand held fans!

It has its downsides. I'm constantly in physical pain during winter.

White clothes for me to reflect the heat, however if it's as hot as last year's summer event it won't make a difference so I'll be hiring a PA to fan me all weekend.

I understand that Mr Paxton has requested his signing area should have "a dry heat" :-D

I went to WLFCC in October 2013 in a t-shirt and I was sweating cobs in there! It was unseasonably hot that day though and the glass roof didn't help! :no:

LFCC 2913 was great, I had no problem with the temperature at the venue even though it was the hottest day of that year,

In 2014 it was a nightmare, hot outside, roasting inside, and it was not just me, i saw many people frantically faning themselfs.

Im hoping the change of venue will improve this problem.

 

Dear Showmasters, turn on the AC.

I was fasting at last Years event, travelled from Birmingham all the way to London to meet Stan Lee. It was absoloutely baking and felt faint at times on the Saturday but on the Friday in the Queue for Stan Lee's auto, was okay as the queue was outside. I won't be going this Year which is a shame as it's an amazing guest list but next Year I'll have no trouble in attending just hope Hayley returns as I'm gutted I can't meet her

I'm sure at LFCC 14 one of the crewe said the aircon was broken.

 

Saying that, i was hot at CM this year when it was raining.

Could I please ask that we not get into the whole air con discussion/conspiracy at Earl's Court 2 again! There was a massive thread about it and it just got ridiculous.

This is a different venue now, lets leave Earl's Court 2 respectively in the past.

Thank you :)

The inside of Earls court was cooler than it was outside last year. I recommend a portable fan.

*stupid mental image of having some kid following me around the event going "WOOOO, GO JOSH!"*..... is... is that not the kind of fan you mean?
