Have you got ANY IDEA how much heat one of those generates.  Those things are like blast furnaces :firedevil::stretcher:

I believe in the very very early days of Pink Floyd, they used to use one for a cool visual effect on stage. They would place oil on the top and heat from the lamp would make it move around, projecting some trippy moving colours over the band.

Just mentioning this so it gets to the attention of the powers that be - please, please, please ramp up the air con this year. I found last year to be a bit unbearable, though it seemed to improve at times when the air con must have been on full blast.

There’s  nothing worse than having paid all this money for photo shoots to look a sweaty mess because it’s sweltering hot. It can’t be nice for the guests either to have a lungful of BO.

We’re apparently having a heatwave this week so I’d hope the air con being on constantly is a given, thanks!

And when Robert England was there, I was in danger of close to passing out, due to how unbearable the heat was

I nearly passed out waiting for my Peter Capaldi photo.  Maybe that wasn't heat related though! :lol:

There is a section about it on the Olympia website, the venue itself won't be affected by the redevelopment and will stay open

Not necessarily. The onsite hotel at the NEC they use for guests at DST is not as expensive as you'd think. Mind you. It's not in London though.

Yeah I did that one, and indeed, queueing to get my photo signed by them afterward, they were all sweating quite a bit!

I can imagine. My only experience is at an outdoor filming location in Italy and that was pretty warm. Shorts, T-shirt and hat day. Still, a terrific day. ^_^
