LFCC is no longer being mentioned on the Olympia website. Plenty of other events for July and August still listed but LFCC is gone. Not sure if it's temporary or what it means.

I noticed that too... :(

Sort of doing it. Found the right boxes but stuck looking for the pockets...

It's not the easiest place to navigate, search 'pages' and that might help

Thanks a lot for tour explanation.

 

Let's hope it's possible  to celebrate It.

 

Kind regards

With new announcements that any new arrivals into UK airports will be subject to 14 days quarantine, surely this means LFCC is done for July....?

Most people that travel for this event usually only come here for a long weekend to a max of 2 weeks anyway... any point in coming?

Obviously the final decision is down to the venue & the organisers, but it also comes down to personal feelings on whether people want to travel or not.

Open to suggestion, of course, but my opinion is with fresh guidelines being announced tomorrow evening, it's looking less likely this will run. :(

I have already cancelled my flights from The Netherlands and requested vouchers.

Even if it would go ahead I wouldn't feel comfortable going to such a big event in these strange times.

I do understand if the UK is putting the quarantine rule in place, but I really hope they will understand the impact.

Wouldn’t be surprised if guests who live outside the UK decide to cancel.

See what the PM says today.

Also, I remember Showmasters saying they’ll review the situation in a few weeks time.

Raab has just said 4th July at the earliest for pubs, restaurants etc. So looks no way the event can still happen, although most of us realised this a while back now. I'm assuming we're just waiting for the insurance rules to kick in before Showmasters announce its canceled.

 

Such a shame, Jason and team had assembled such a strong lineup this year as well .

It would make things easier if the Government said something like "no mass gatherings until at least August/September" i.e. 500+ or 1000+ people, which would take it out of SM's hands.

Yeah, as it stands it's still up in the air.

Yes, also we don’t know what date the 14-day quarantine for air travellers will be extended to yet either. if still in place the weeks before the event it would make it pretty impossible to go ahead on current dates 

Also might as well forget the current line-up as we don’t really know what guests personal response will be and filming schedules have all been affected too.

Seems clear that there is no way this event is going ahead. There's just no way it's going to happen. Shame, because it would be the first time I've been back in a long while.

"Another comic con event" scheduled to take place September 11-13 at Oregon Convention Center, is now cancelled...

Not sure on what planet anyone would expect LFCC to go ahead right now.

@Starbuck73 You might want to edit your post there, it’s against forum rules to mention non SM events. :smile:

Have edited the post, though I'm not sure that it matters as it has been cancelled... so it's a "non-event" anyway. :(

Unfortunately it's still classed as another event even though it's been cancelled.

Just changing the name but still giving that date and place are still against the rules. From what we have always been told, if you can find it on Google from the info here, then it’s too much. It’s generally best to just not refer to other events at all here.

If admin want to remove it, they can. I believe it reinforces the reasoning behind LFCC needing to be cancelled or rescheduled as soon as possible.

The fact we have heard nothing from Showmasters on this since March is extremely disappointing, yet they continue with their sales posts.

Can anyone think of another company that did that before they disappeared into oblivion (mentioning no names, of course)...??? 

Everyone is waiting for news, I get that, but some people (friends) only have a certain time frame to apply for travel & accommodation refunds, which is quickly dwindling.

I think the reason SM have said nothing, is that the UK Government have said nothing on this front since March. If you read the rest of the posts on this thread, it’s pretty obvious as to what the situation is and what is going to happen. If you are really concerned then I suggest you email Showmasters directly as it seems that they will see that before anything on here right now.

And this is completely different to any other situations with other unnamed companies.
