Latest Guest Announcement - NICK CASTLE

Recommended Posts

Met him earlier on behalf of a friend. He was charging £10 for a selfie but as I got to the front of his queue his agent came along and said we aren’t allowed to charge for selfies so it’s no photos at all.

Really? I was hoping for a selfie on Sunday. :( Oh well, nothing we can do about it I suppose.

He's the only reason why I'm here, and it's four hours waiting time so far - and it's Friday. God knows what it will be like tomorrow.

I haven't been here for quite a few years, but it's clear to me this event is now almost pointless without Diamond / Gold passes. I didn't buy one because I never expected to have to wait 4 or 5 hours to meet Nick Castle - next time, I'll know better :) In the meantime, I've essentially had to write off the entire day - but he will sign my Last Starfighter poster if it kills me.

Oh man :( Now I'm really worried about Sunday. Thanks for warning me though.

oh no!! 4 to 5 hrs waiting to get something signed?! Nick is the only reason i am attending too!  i cannot do this :( i am only in London for 5 hours then need to head for the train back home to Glasgow. ok i'm guaranteed my photo shoot, but i was wanting my Halloween poster signed too! fingers crossed that this is not the same scenario for tomorrow... :unsure:

No one has a gold pass option. Gold pass holders get the join any autograph queue without worrying about VQ tickets (except for diamond guests). Therefore, as Nick is not a diamond guest, people with a gold pass get priority in his autograph queue.

so a gold pass entiltles you to the front of the Q for any/all guests? :o and why would you buy a gold pass if your only going for 1 guest? which in my case is Nick castle, so basically to guarantee you have to pay through the nose? :(

A good pass gives you priority for any non-diamond guest, hence the price. Unfortunately if you are only going for one person then it is hard to justify the price of a good pass, but it is essentially the only way to guarantee seeing a non-diamond guest. You will just have to get a VQ ticket and see if you're lucky I'm afraid.

Gold passes are listed under 3 day tickets in the shop, but I believe it is too late at this stage to upgrade, sorry.

I imagine his photos will fit that timeframe, it's just that an unprecedented amount of people are trying for his autograph.

I imagine if you speak to a crew member they will do their best to assist you.

Ahh right ok then :D.

From the sounds of it, he doesn't appear to be today, but I'm certain that someone will see all this and then will ensure that he is for the rest of the weekend.

Hopefully someone who is at the event will be checking the forum at some point and will see this. On the day, if this problem is still continuing, try to find a person in a red crew shirt, they are the pit bosses, and they may be able to help.
